The likelihood of your reading this particular reply might be low, but I know that there are a lot of geeks out there who may be able to help so I'm going to take a leap of faith and hope for the best.
Also, this is pretty far off topic from what you're polling us for, (and I apologize up-front to everyone for this), but where I'm going with this is uniquely germane to a project you're working on and you're the only guy I think who might listen to this idea and provide some constructive feedback...if not you, then your gazillion followers, all of whom are bound to be the very brand of intelligent geeks from whom I need feedback.
It all starts with a radio station here in the San Francisco Bay Area...
KFOG, (okay, Cumulus), just caned their morning show radio personalities out of nowhere. The conglomerate is looking to change it to a typical "penis jokes" format show, changing the name from "The KFOG Morning Show" (a 30 year institution) to this;
"The Morning After"
The one thing we look forward to while getting ready for work or driving to work in the morning is an intelligent and engaging block of time, filled with insightful interviews and local guest bands playing an occasional acoustic performance to plug an upcoming show or simply a clever contest for some concert or another and now it's vaporized.
One of the on air personalities had been with the station producing the show for 14 years. For that loyal service, he was handed a pink slip yesterday. A Friday - totally ruined his weekend, to say nothing for his wedding plans...he just got engaged.
We, here in the San Francisco Bay Area are still in shock, and very much appalled by this, and...Well...I don't ordinarily do this, (spammin' a post), but a bunch of people just lost their jobs as well, a whole demographic of listeners spread all over the world just lost the only glint of intelligence on the radio they had. (Again, my apologies for the length of this), so...
I'm hoping garner some attention to the cause of starting another YouTube channel like Felicia Day and Wil Wheaton did with Geek and Sundry, only it would focus on creating an intelligent and engaging morning show; broadcast in such a fashion as to allow the kind of talent that's out there to be heard.
I’m just some dude with an idea. But you're a dude with a following of uber-smart geeks, some of which, I am hoping, have the know-how and the desire to help something like this happen.
I think it has the potential to huge as well as a better way to provide an intelligent morning show. I know they exist because ours was just canned.
One more time, sorry for the out-of-context post, here. Just hoping to attract a wee bit of help, if not some suggestions and more ideas, in order to get these poor folks back on the air some how. Add me to your circles and contact me if you feel you can get behind this idea. I am open to suggestions on how to make it work.
