A website with 24 hour schedule of different radio
phone-in and request shows around the world that broadcast
on FM and onthe internet. Each show is profiled and
the phone number published. The user is given the opportunity
to send to any scheduled show an email request or an
SMS msg from the website along with the option to call
the telephone no for the phone-in if they have the means.(e.g
a mobile phone).
There will be a framing of this project as an actiivist
tool, given the ubiquity of the radio phone-in format
as a pseudo-democratic service. It would perhaps eventually
be possible to co-ordinate mass phone-ins, but this
is the first phase of the project.
In the public space of Mediarama festival the user
is invited to listen to a global inventory of phone-in
format radio shoows and consider whether it serves a
democratic function or merely substitutes it.
