Thanks.... Adding music content would be great. Let's play with the idea and see where it leads.
I know I have intentions of playing around with the idea of blogging radio content, interviews, news and sustainability focused break downs of the programs. Possibly even look at placing pod casts for download on how to hot topic stuff.
I think a major piece to what we need here in Indiana is a consistent medium to reach more and more people driving awareness and growth of the everyday public to what it means to live green and why more can do so in very easy ways. Decreasing Indiana's Carbon Footprint is a big goal.
My hope is that the radio station can become an additional rally point, or a focal point if you will, of synergistic flow to build up, support and grow what has been happening in the (almost) underground of Indiana. Example of what you have created here is awesome. With conscious support, brain storming, collaboration I believe we can achieve more over the next 5 years than the last 15.
Finding support for public radio projects can be tough in the beginning yet with the right introductions, the proper networking we can easily make this a viable media outlet to serve the greater good. Big misconceptions is that most business minded folks attach the same thought line to public radio as they do commercial radio and don't understand how affordable it is. We build on the concept of many verse big budget players, it brings about extremely good advantages business wise, tax wise, and public exposure wise. Also with a few months under our belt there are grants we can possibly attach that will sustain the radio station for awhile as well as purchase some things that are very needed like a slightly used digital transmitter etc.
OOOOPS! I've been ranting again. LOL
Thanks again for all you do, the forum and focus you maintain that has created strong building blocks to a Greener Indiana!
Thanks! I've worked very hard to create a useful Web site that shows people how to make art by reusing materials. This is especially important for those with little money, mostly teachers, but the process saves energy, natural resources, and landfill space, too.
Right now I'm working on organizing a recycled art show. With nearly two dozen participating artists, I think we have the beginnings of a group devoted to "upcycling or repurposing" materials, so I'll pass along info about this site. I'm glad to be a part of it.
I'm embarrassed that it's taken me this long. I've viewed the site often, but finally realized that I wasn't participating. I'm glad to be on board now. Now...let's see if I can think of something intelligent to say... ;)
Wow! Thanks so much for the useful information! I am very interested in the convention in Indy, so am looking into that now! I am still new to the site, but exploring when I can. Thanks to your help - it is easy to understand and navigate.
Vernal equinox! Couldn't come any too soon! Have a good one!
Thanks for the welcome. I am loving it so far. What a terrific site. I am having a blast playing around with it getting 'settled in'. I look forward to meeting and working with others to help the amphibians of Indiana and to educate the public about them.
I'm curious about those who join w/o posting a photo. I realize the internet is an anonymous medium, but if we're all for a greener Indiana, why not post a photo. We may pass each other on the street someday. A photo might let us recognize each other and say, "Hi."
I hope so. I need to find a partner to invest in this idea with me so I can manufacture and sell on a mass scale. I know this idea is extremely profitable, fun, and economical. So maybe this is the rocket ship that will propel me out of poverty.
Hoping to do the drumming once a month. If you wish to sign up for my newsletter to stay informed, email me at WellnessCoachAmy@earthlink.net - www.stressLess4U.com. If you can make it tonight it will help get off to a great start!!!
Hope to be doing a Sustainable Living workbook series early next year at UUCC Danville, www.uuccdanville.org, as well from Northwest Earth Institute.
