Dear Friends,

I'm working to sign up events for World Community Arts Day, being held "live" and on the Internet on February 17, 2009. A number of groups and individuals from around the world have signed up to participate, and you can see more at the url below.

http://www.communiversity.org.uk/worldcommunityartsday.htm

The organizers would love to sign up radio events, so hopefully a number of Creative Radio members will respond!

I recently received this letter from an Internet radio station based in Northern Ireland, which describes what they are looking for:

"I manage an organisation called Beyond Skin (www.beyondskin.net) using the arts to address racism and sectarian issues in Northern Ireland. We run an internet radio station, Homely Planet (www.homelyplanet.org) and will be developing a special broadcast for the day.

Any ideas for a audio collaboration for radio might be interesting. Something simple would be fine: for example, someone from Northern Ireland could email their own poem to someone in Kenya, who could record themselves reading it out for us to broadcast. And other way around.

People can email MP3's to this gmail address: homelyplanet@gmail.com

We don't podcast--amongst other reasons to support other groups linked to radio programs--so we can send recordings to other websites.

It would be great for people to know their words were being spoken and recorded by someone across the world!"

Best wishes,

Darren Ferguson

One such event WCAD has organized in the past can be seen and heard at MySpace. This involved a gathering of primary school students and their teachers, who all sang in unison: "when the people play their part". http://www.myspace.com/worldcommunityartsday

On this February 17th, a live podcast is planned, on the theme: "All You Need Is Love". This is being organized by Peopleprint Community Media, and will feature Beatles tribute band, "The Cheatles", who will be performing the song of the same title with an orchestra, local volunteers, and young people.

Provisional broadcast time will be 7pm GMT. For more, see http://www.peopleprint.org.uk and
http://www.beatlestribute.co.uk. Contact Dawn at Peopleprint Community Media for more details:
peopleprints@btconnect.com.

Any other radio ideas, especially interchanges among people in different countries, are most welcome!
Please contact Andrew Crummy (WCAD head organizer) at andrewcrummy@phonecoop.coop or
andrew@smallandcrummy.co.uk, Darren Ferguson (homelyplanet@gmail.com), or Janet Feldman kaippg@earthlink.net)

Thanks, and hope to "hear" from you for WCAD 2009! All best wishes, Janet Feldman

2. Efek Rumah Kaca di Kompas Sabtu berbicara bahasa korupsi

Efek Rumah Kaca setiap sabtu di Kompas
 
Salah satu ciri nyata dari betapa memasyarakatnya korupsi adalah keberagaman istilah bahasa dan kosa kata yang lahir berkat aktivitas itu. Aneka mata uang tercipta: pelicin, uang rokok, uang dengar, sampai uang kaget. Kata keterangan tempat kian beragam: lahan basah, lahan becek, hingga lahan banjir.. Para pelaku korupsi, baik yang kakap maupun yang "kelas kelurahan", banyak mengumbar eufimisme untuk mengutarakan lokasi, maksud, dan motif korupsinya- mungkin biar koruptor terlihat lebih santun lagipula beradab untuk menutupi tindakan manipulasinya. Singkatnya, koruptor juga mahir nyastra. Baca lengkapnya di kompas sabtu besok.
 
Edisi kemaren Efek Rumah Kaca menjadi cover di majalah HAI. baca bongkar rahasia ERK disana.

3. Ardour digital audio workstation.

Ardour is a digital audio workstation. You can use it to record, edit and
mix multi-track audio. You can produce your own CDs, mix video
soundtracks, or just experiment with new ideas about music and sound.

Ardour capabilities include: multichannel recording, non-destructive
editing with unlimited undo/redo, full automation support, a powerful
mixer, unlimited tracks/busses/plugins, timecode synchronization, and
hardware control from surfaces like the Mackie Control Universal. If
you've been looking for a tool similar to ProTools, Nuendo, Pyramix, or
Sequoia, you might have found it.

Above all, Ardour strives to meet the needs of professional users. This
means implementing all the "hard stuff" that other DAWs ( even some
leading commercial apps ) handle incorrectly or not at all. Ardour has a
completely flexible "anything to anywhere" routing system, and will allow
as many physical I/O ports as your system allows. Ardour supports a wide
range of audio-for-video features such as video-synced playback and
pullup/pulldown sample rates. You will also find powerful features such as
"persistent undo", multi-language support, and destructive track punching
modes that aren't available on other platforms.

Hey All,

I thought I'd pipe in to let you know what CKDU in Halifax has been up to.
We've been operating on almost %100 open source software since 2003.
This is
documented here:
http://ckdu.dal.ca/ckdu-os

The site is a little bit outdated but I think its a good overview of the
stations computer structure. It would be interesting to have other folks
contribute their cc radio-related open source solutions to the site...

To sum things up in relation to your questions:

a. logging / live streaming
We also use Tom Cleggs fantastic software mp3cat. As an example, you
can access
our web interface here:
http://ckdu.dal.ca

b. podcasting
We use bashpodder (http://www.lincgeek.org/bashpodder/) for "podcatching",
automatically downloading syndicated programming. Currently we're
modifying the script a bit to better accommodate our needs. I can
recommend this version:
http://podracer.sourceforge.net/
As for podcasting our own programming, we provide a bit of web space
for each individual show (in-house freebsd web server) and let them manage
their own podcast if they want... only about 4 or 5 shows actually
maintain a podcast.

c. recording / playback
We primarily use Audacity and Ardour http://ardour.org/ for recording and
editing. Most people use Audacity because its so simple, especially new
volunteers. However, more and more people are starting to learn Ardour
because its a much more powerful and
user-friendly tool.
We use xmms for on-air playback of all digital audio because of its
simplicity and because inertia rules.. this is what we've been using for
years and its fine aside from a few annoying quirks. This will probably
change in the near future to either a full-fledged automation system like
Campcaster
(http://www.campware.org/en/camp/campcaster_news/) or a music management
program like Amarok.

Hope this helps.

New Delhi

To impart practical knowledge to its students of certificate programme in
community radio, IGNOU has entered into an understanding with the
Commonwealth Educational Media Centre for Asia (CEMCA)
http://www.cemca.org/ and 10 broadcasters across the country.

The broadcasters are mostly based in the Southern states and in Jharkhand,
West Bengal and Orissa. They will impart on-the-job-training to the
enrolled students of the certificate programme at their centres and
hands-on training to the pass-outs in the initial stage, said an IGNOU
spokesperson.

" Half of the course component is thoroughly practical and will be learnt
through apprenticeship," he said.

The broadcasters would, in turn, be financially supported by IGNOU and
CEMCA. CEMCA has also announced 150 scholarships for students willing to
set up community radios, the spokesperson said.

Importantly, he said, IGNOU's School of Journalism and New Media Studies
has also decided to utilise the Gyan Vani facility in selective charts of
time-slots to run community radio broadcasting schedule. These efforts are
likely to generate jobs and boost extension services in agriculture,
fisheries, floriculture, horticulture, among others.
