He said he has no plans to sell or accept advertising, though has not ruled out accepting contributions from those who want to help the online station advance.
“The less money I expend, the happier I am,” he said. “The idea is to do this in an affordable manner, to get it up there and keep it running.”
The website for the station is already asking listeners to contribute ideas or topics for future productions, and also inquires as to whether those listeners want to participate in producing content.
Kosmer said he would like the station to develop a close bond with the local community. One idea for a program, he suggested, would be to stream audio from a school spelling bee.
He said he sees the station as an alternative way to communicate with people who now exchange information through “wordy” emails.
“This is another medium,” he said. “We wanted something else that goes past that. It’s a great experiment. That’s the way I look at it.”
