How We Listen pt.2 w/ Vocalo Producers
Come Check Out Chicago’s Most Exciting New Media Project! Bring Questions! How We Listen will be a discussion with producers from the new Vocalo radio project, which aims make “community-created media” a major part of the mix on what will be a 50,000-watt broadcast. The project, by Chicago Public Radio, is starting out broadcasting this summer online at www.vocalo.org and in Northwest Indiana ( 89.5 FM). By late fall Vocalo will be on the air in Chicagoland and we thought that we should hold an event to hear what their plans are and get local media makers and concerned citizens together to discuss ideas and proposals for content on the radio project. Vocalo is unique in the world of radio because it offers greater potential for users to guide and produce content that will be aired on the radio. The station will be free form like the best college and experimental radio, but will have potentially greater reach and no ties to a university. We are excited to welcome Vocalo into the local media landscape and believe their presence is a promising addition. Come check them out for yourself.
