    Hello All,


    We have been thinking about possible ideas for Fellowsfilm Network recently, and decided that we would ask the community what they think of the entire idea. So - what do you think of a dedicated Internet radio station for Fellowsfilm? Please leave a reply below with your thoughts.


    In addition, although the radio station (if plans do go ahead) is far away from being actually put online, we wanted to read any suggestions you may have and just your general thoughts.

    I'm intrigued as to how it would work, as in your plans for content, how to stream etc. I would admit I would listen to it and decide to continually if I like it or not. But, if you ever need help with ideas of the presenting side, I'd love to get involved.

    At the moment, it is not something we've looked into with huge detail. To start off with, we just want to see what the community thinks of the whole idea, as radio station costs are pretty high and we wouldn't want to go into it without knowing it will be worthwhile.


    We'd definitely be up for any advice/tips you have for sure, and, of course, if we do start this up we will need DJs for a start. We know all about radio licensing and Shoutcast server streaming etc... :)

    I'd recommend doing a proper survey for this as you guys could end up suffering big losses. Its a very niche market that I'm presuming you're targeting, so I wouldn't personally encourage you guys to invest too much in it. But that being said, I'd love such a radio.

    It'd be quite cool to do some form of podcast, but I agree, as someone with Community Radio experience, unless you know exactly know you plan to do it, I wouldn't suggest it! :tongueout:  I admit to not knowing very much about it myself but I'm always willing to help out!

    I have owned 2 online radio stations and it is quite good. Radio licensing costs £400 per year from PRS and PPL. Shoutca.st  have good servers and are upto £5 a month. I will happily run this for you if you wish.
