Seems a bit weird to plan a whole schedule make a fancy website and only try sell advertising and raise funds 66 hours before going live, maybe should start the fund raising now, I really like listening to it last year, shame was not organized properly

It's now Friday and they can't even announce their statement on time. I was in full support of Open FM right up until the point that they left it with 66 hours to fundraise. I firmly believe that they can't really bemoan the fact that they're not on the air this year. They said the volunteers were too busy to fundraise. Then why didn't they start throughout the year like every other good organisation?! The community will fund it if they'd given it a chance. Part of me hopes that it doesn't come back at all this year to teach them a lesson. It is nobody's fault but their own. End of.

It is sad. But what I don't like is that I've seen and heard some of them complaining that people didn't donate or get behind it. It is 100% Open FMs fault that they're not on this year and blaming the community is pathetic.

Maybe there will not be any, or maybe they are still sorting some last minute financing.
It is pity because it was a very professional crew, and an interesting point of view.
Did they not do a live coverage of the parade?

Open FM Website and Facebook said :
OpenFM regrets to announce that due to funding difficulties its 2011 broadcast will not be occurring as planned. OpenFM had hoped to broadcast for thirty days from mid-June to mid-July.


There is a link to a press release, but it won't open for me.

That's a shame, hopefully it'll return next year.
