Building a Dream(an open letter to my audience)

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I would like to eventually create a streaming webcast associated with this site.  One of the reasons I created this podcast was as an outlet for a passion that I’ve had since I did my first radio show on 570 AM WLCV at the University of Louisville.  Over the years I’ve been back and forth having run a webcast in the early 2000’s, a podcast for a couple of years, and most recently a radio show for a local LPFM.

All of that to say I like doing the podcast and will continue to do so with some degree of infrequency until I quit making excuses about how busy I am.  However recent reading and planning has put me in a position to see the bigger picture and start building towards a full 24/7 streaming radio station.  It will start small as that’s all I’ll be able to afford to run and hopefully grow over time.  I don’t have a definite date of when it will start.  There are still a few logistical challenges ahead, but I’ve started planning how I want to broadcast genres and when along with budgeting for dedicated equipment and software.  As part of that I’ve signed up to be an affiliate with Amazon in the hopes of making a little money towards building the station.

I want to be absolutely transparent in how I run this site and the time to start is when I’m pretty much an unknown.  I will be adding links here and there, but I don’t want to go overboard.  If you like what I’m doing and are considering buying things through Amazon, please consider using the product links or a link I will have setup to use just as a matter of support.

Thank you for your support in advance.
