To be based in our Global Arts CoLab located in the international arts colony of the East Village, New York City, Radio Free insite will be an interactive internet radio station that will air all the independent music, news and talk that is impossible to find on corporate radio these days, and from a perspective that is uniquely insiteful. 

From playlists created by international guest artist cyberjockeys (CJs) to in-studio performances by local East Village artists and activists to listener-created iPodcasts to call-ins from listener cell phones, Radio Free insite will provide a diverse and intelligent mix of interactive content sure to intrigue, educate and entertain!

Radio Free insite also will broadcast live the International Rock the Planet Music Festival, which will kick off insite's feature film event, Rock the Planet. See our insite Films page for more info.

From the looks of it, even the Clear Channel folks will have time to tune in.

Clear Channel Communications shares are down nearly 20% over the past 12 months, reflecting the declining value of radio station licenses as listeners defect to satellite radio and MP3 players like the iPod.

But it would be a mistake for investors to tune out the radio industry, said Sarat Sethi, portfolio manager at Douglas C. Lane & Associates, a New York money manager.

Clear Channel, the nation's biggest radio station owner, is fighting back with its own digital radio strategy, Sethi said. And the San Antonio company has launched a "less-is-more" initiative aimed at reducing commercial clutter on the airwaves and returning the industry to a growth path.

Its "less-is-more'' policy has reduced its commercial time per hour to less than nine minutes from 12 minutes, boosting advertising revenue in the process, according to a report from Bear Stearns.
