So it took a 10 year struggle for several pressure groups to run into a kind of competition for one frequency which will be allowed from next year on to operate within the limits of the city of Frankfurt. This 10 days by Radio X-MIX has to be regarded as a share or test run in this occasion. It´s not for free altogether. X-MIX has to pay around 5000$ for the right to gon on air! (10 days while private corporation make millions by state benignity for nearly ten years!!)
Afterall, it finally happened. They´re on air for the first time, and I´m really excited about it. It´s local radio from local people for local people, and since it´s nearly the whole community contributing to it, you´ll hear a familiar voice every day. I think it´s very important that we´ll have an Internet representation here as well, but it´s more static, and people can hear the radio everywhere, at work, at home, in the car. It´s really a dynamic thing. It should have an Internet transmission but that was too sophisticated although they could have used the server capabilities of the institute for new media here. Next time.
