Top Examples of Interactive Radio (Cridland style)

Who is doing innovative programming with a creative interactive component?

Here is a take with a U.K. slant. Radio “futurologist” James Cridland ventures an answer. His list:

1. Now Playing @6Music, BBC Radio 6 Music

2. BBC Radio 1’s homepage, BBC Radio 1

3. 102.3 Now! Radio, Edmonton, Canada

4. Geoff Lloyds Hometime Show, Absolute Radio

5. BBC World Have Your Say, BBC World Service Radio and BBC World News tv

Of his first choice, Cridland writes: “The brainchild of SomethinElse, this was the first joint commission between BBC 6Music and BBC Audio & Music Interactive; and has been described as music radio 2.0. It uses Twitter and Facebook, yes, but also Spotify and blogs, too, to curate and reflect music played by 6musics audiences.
