I am not aware of the legal or financial difficulties in opening an internet radio but I suggest such service here if it is possible.

Such radio will broadcast musics according to the requests coming from the users, and DJ's (spokers) will be chosen transaltors.

Program ranges may include:
News from the site
Music (according to the requests or polls)
Article Reading
Radio theaters in various languages
Onine answering to the asked technical questions (not in a way of conversation. he questions may be received in writing and somebody can answer them during his program)

It can be dedicated in several languages (in some days it can be in other languages but generally will be in English)

I think it will be very easy by using internet phone programs such as Skype.

What do you think about it?

My suggestion can be interpreted in such way.
Music is not the main point.

Community podcasts and radio. I love it. Jun 4, 2009

I think that's a great idea! Many service websites have their own podcasts; a Proz podcast-based radio could be really interesting.

I'm thinking different kinds of podcasts in different languages, transmitted at the same time and created by different people that have an insight on a specific topic. For instance, a program about Localization-only, created by one or more people, and transmitted weekly at the same time (just a thought)--that way, people could tune in and ask [b]real-time questions or comments[b/], via Skype or the program forum. Additionally, each program would be available as downloadable podcasts.

Also, ProZ could make some money adding sponsors, since the podcasts would be topic and language specific, targeting the advertising would be easier to do.

Onine answering to the asked technical questions (not in a way of conversation. he questions may be received in writing and somebody can answer them during his program)

I regularly listen to a podcast that has a "Mailbag" edition, and it is very popular because the panel answers to many questions that are or could be relevant to all listeners.

I hope this idea gets implemented or, at least, considered.

Great suggestion M. Ali.

Edit: I don't know how popular are podcasts among ProZians, but their advantage is that they're portable. They can be downloaded, so they can be played in a ton of places and situations, like driving, walking the dog, etc.

That's a good idea for the ProZ Community podcast ( thematic or free style). For example, categorized by the entertainment and business- related subdivisions.

I like the idea.
