This is a cool idea that feels different than other internet radio stations. Radio Free Fedi – “small web, consent driven, artist populated, non-commercial mechanism, attribution promoting, community radio for the fediverse” – and it really feels that way to me. This takes me back to 2005ish internet radio that I took part in. It feels more authentic when you catch something being built from the ground up in a grassroots style.
I submitted a few tracks for playback, which is sort of what necessitated my previous post about re-evaluating my music licensing. I’ll also be looking at other ways to contribute – funds, station IDs, anything else the maintainers need. Much like this #100DaysofIndieWeb project, it’s all about building up the web that we want to experience.
