Infinity's San Francisco-based KYOURADIO, which the broadcaster says is the first radio station devoted to live 24/7 podcasting, is set to launch on Monday, May 16 at 9 a.m. Eastern. KYOURADIO's content will feature podcasts created by listeners, and be available in San Francisco at 1550 KYCY(AM) and streamed online at www.kyouradio.com.
The station's inaugural podcast will be from Dave Winer, a software developer credited as instrumental in the development of podcasting technology.
Podcasting technology allows users to create and upload their own audio programs on the Internet which can then be downloaded to multimedia players. With the necessary software, users can subscribe to their favorite podcasts and have them sent automatically to their players for listening at their convenience. Podcasts broadcast on KYCY(AM) and streamed online will not be available for download, said Infinity.
Users began uploading their podcasts for free on April 27, when the station was announced where it becomes eligible to be selected for broadcast.
More than 400 podcasts have been uploaded from users worldwide. Submitted podcasts cover a range of topics, including, life in San Francisco, thoughts pondered while commuting, highlights from the world of science, time travel, amusement parks, and the best in bluegrass, indie, rock and Asian music. Listener interests and feedback will determine station programming, and evaluated daily.
