Someone said :



"First licensed LGBT radio station" is our rewording.
They said, as you saw in the blog:





I haven't seen any blog, so how can you claim I saw it in the blog?

Someone said :



First thing first: we have had to differentiate because of the discrimination.
Let's end discrimination, and then the need to differentiate will disappear. Or let's pretend we are not discriminated still...


WE don't have to, but some of us may choose to. I know I can't end discrimination for everyone, so know if we wait until discrimination ends, i'll be waiting forever. If some folks want to discriminate againse me, then thats their choice, I can only react to them and can't preempt them.

I'd like to be a researcher. I worked on a radio station in college for a few months and liked it. Do you need experience to apply for the positions?

You need to send them an email.
For you, the best position seems to be:
Researchers
OpenFM requires individuals to fill the role of researcher. The role involves working with producers in the gathering of stories and program ideas, vetting callers, organising guests and helping with the overall production and quality of the broadcast.

I'm wondering why a radio station is styling itself as the "first licensed LGBT radio station". Are they expecting there to be a 2nd, and 3rd and so on?


It is needed to get a (community) license, which Open FM have, to define the community of interest you are broadcasting too, this is a criteria to get this license from the BCI (or what ever they our called now) I think that is what is ment by "first licensed LGBT radio station.

And just to be clear, they do not call themselves an LGBT radio.
We used the term in our blog on Gaire (which you may have read: http://gaire.com/e/b/article.asp?id=3906).
They define themselves as mainly catering for the LGBT community, but being open to all on FM.

They started an emergency fund raise 66 hours before the planned airing() and didn't make the target so think it was shelved

It looks like they only launched their appeal on the 66 hour mark. Don't remember hearing about any other fundraising during the year, so don't know what they were playing at. Hope the people who did donate got their money back.
