sed Is Radio a viable venue? (9) RE: Is Radio a viable venue? 20 Mar 03


First, view: www.folkradio.org as it's an international network of folk and bluegrass DJs who discuss many aspects of contemporary radio.


I enjoy featuring live performances and interviews on my live weekly radio show but being an unpaid volunteer I haven't even a salary for myself and consequently no money to pay musicians. The way public radio is set up all money raised goes to the network and so I've not made a cent since starting in Oct. 1999. Of course there are fringe benefits not the least of which is hearing some great and often very rare and endangered music.

There's a bumper crop of talented people eager to perform for little or nothing. Yet, I feel guilty for not paying people but where would I get the cash?
