Radio Open Source Goes Silent

by Devanshu Mehta

The “best radio show on traditional radio and the internet”:http://www.radioopensource.org/we-interrupt-this-program/ is going on a hiatus for the summer following a series of setbacks involving loss of many of the pillars that formed its financial support- UMass Lowell, WGBH and unnamed others. A last ditch fundraising effort kept them afloat for the last few weeks, but the Christopher Lydon and Radio Open Source are off the radio for now.

How ironic that this happened the day after “Internet radio’s day of silence.”:http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070626-internet-radio-day-of-silence-hushes-thousands-of-stations.html
