  [these are a few short thoughts on recent phenomenon,
  parts online and offline, which have a similar theme.
  the following e-mail is forwarded about a public radio
  project in the U.K. which reminded me of would could
  be a way to bring the online, offline, into traditional

  for example, i think it was Neil Postman and-or Richard
  Saul Wurman, and likely others who have mentioned the
  possibilities with designing information flows, a carto-
  graphy of places, actual and virtual. and so, when looking
  at the public television station (in .mn/.us it there are
  two channels on broadcast, only one of which is used all
  of the time, channel 2, while the other is used at night
  for parallel programming, channel 17. yet only has weather
  radar on during the daytime, basically, media-wallpaper.

  and i wondered both about the newspapers and also the TV,
  and also having stated about the radio, previously and in
  turn found out about such projects exploring these areas
  anew, such as the project below. yet, to see this big blank
  space on the public TV channel made me wonder about all of
  the programming that could be there, or, how someday it
  could become a channel for things online to function off-
  line, and for public and educational and artistic matters,
  which fits within the mission of public television/media,
  if it continues to survive. in other countries the main
  channels for media are publicly/state owned, yet in the
  .us it is hard to find public content. so too, if there
  were columns in mainly repetitive newspapers which brought
  content from online, offline, by independent content dev-
  elopers, it could become another merging/hybrid place,
  where new and old merge. not to mean that a newspaper-
  writer writes an online column, but online people get
  published in a special space, offline, to broaden the
  public discourse. which could be an interesting experiment
  between new and old media, as it is sometimes called...]

* Resonance FM background:

London Musicians' Collective has been granted an Access Radio Pilot Licence
to broadcast on FM in central London for 12 months from 1st May 2002. It is
one of only fifteen organisations in Britain to have been granted such a
licence, as part of a new initiative by the Radio Authority; and one of
only three such projects in London. It is the only arts-based such project
in the country.
Resonance FM will broadcast from Bankside, London Bridge, SE1, with a
transmission radius of five kilometres, covering central London. Launching
on  1st May 2002, it will initially broadcast from 5pm till 1am on weekdays
and from 12 noon till 1am at weekends, moving on to 24 hours a day later in
the year.
Imagine a radio station like no other. A radio station that makes public
those artworks that have no place in traditional broadcasting. A radio
station that is an archive of the new, the undiscovered, the forgotten, the
impossible. That is an invisible gallery, a virtual arts centre whose
location is at once local, global and timeless. And that is itself a work
of art. Imagine a radio station that responds rapidly to new initiatives,
has time to  draw breath and reflect. A laboratory for experimentation,
that by virtue of its uniqueness brings into being a new audience of
listeners and creators. All this and more, Resonance FM aims to make
London's airwaves available to the widest possible range of practitioners
of contemporary art.
Through a programme that arises from an unapologetically artistic vision,
Resonance FM seeks to serve and expand the interests of the creative
artistic community. With its focus on excellence, Resonance FM aims to
raise achievement of young people in and through the arts; to provide
creative opportunities for students to develop and utilise skills; and to
liaise with local providers and community organisations to enable access on
a socially and ethnically diverse scale. Our output will appeal across the
age, social and cultural spectra.
Resonance FM is seeking artists, supporters, partners, advertisers &
sponsors for this unique and ground-breaking project. Can you help us?
