As part of Project Everyone, an initiative started by Comic Relief founder Richard Curtis, Radio Everyone and Radio.co teamed up to help create a global pop-up radio station in an effort to help meet the project’s “Global Goals” aimed at fighting poverty. According to Radio.co, during the pop-up’s seven days on air, at least 250 million people tuned in.
Content from artists and celebrities like Bono, Kasabian, Paloma Faith, Hilary Swank, Peter Gabriel and Cate Blanchett were pre-recorded and scheduled via Radio.co before being syndicated to traditional radio stations across the globe, including one minute packages on each of the 17 Global Goals that ran every 15 minutes. Approximately 600 stations contributed during the broadcast’s seven days, in addition to it being available on the Global Goals website.
A total of 117 countries listened to Radio Everyone. The broadcast was available in 10 different language streams.
“The success of Radio Everyone has shown how powerful this new concept of pop-up radio can be; using the Internet platform allows DJs to connect from everywhere in the world, and broadcast globally,” said James Mulvany, co-founder of Radio.co.
