Open Source Radio Update

We’ve been running the Open Source Radio project on the No Agenda Stream for more than a full week now and an update is overdue on our progress.
There’s a backgrounder on the project here if you are reading about this for the first time.
In broad strokes, OSR’s goal is to create a radio station for a community that is geographically diverse, but has a number of common interests in news, diverse political views and music, which is really the common bond.
Unlike mainstream radio, the community loves the serendipitous nature of hearing songs that are contributed by the community as a whole. Not from a top-down management approach.
We ‘program’ the station by it’s listeners ‘dropping’ songs in a common ‘Dropbox‘ that are then picked up by the server and put into ‘rotation’
