Scam Or Not A Scam?

Post by radiojar » Sat Sep 13, 2014 8:30 am

For decades I have kept up with all things in radio. And for the last couple of years I have been watching the business plan used by Our City Radio and the European version called Our City a Go Go. If any of you haven't heard about it, it is basically a business plan where eventually all major cities and markets will be represented in their network of online radio stations. Only catering to the local market's needs with unsigned artists. I suspect they will only play and promote unsigned artists to avoid having to pay royalties. In this same time period they have always advertised radio jobs for station managers, presenters, and publicists. In the beginning they required station managers to invest at least one hundred dollars into the company. Immediately a red flag went up in my mind when a company asks for an investment from an employee before they could have the job. Over the years I have had people tell me that they tried this great opportunity in radio and received conflicting stories from their experiences. But none to my knowledge has made any amount of money they were willing to talk about. Some that have talked to me I feel have sold their soul to the business plan and admits that every month major changes are installed as they are learning from their previous mistakes. And they have full confidence that this company will succeed one day.

Now I will admit that when I first became aware of this project, it sounded like a great idea. Something that I and a lot of other people had thought of in the first year when streaming online was possible. But back then it was not possible because web radio, apps, and etc. wasn't available then. Also it was not worth it financially to make a profit.

So for discussion and your opinions, is Our City Radio a scam?

1. Online is not radio.
2. Of course it's a scam.

Streaming audio is the future. New cars are coming out with WiFi connections. The current system is young and (lack of a better word) a joke. Until something happens to organize it, it will stay this way.

Keep in mind every 12 year old kid can run a streaming broadcast with little to no overhead. For anybody to do well in streaming audio, you have to advertise the hell out of it and then your not reach everybody . . .today.

I know a company that is working on this now and they boast 1 million listeners. The problem is: 330 million in the country, not very good percentage. Plus they will admit, they can't get advertiser and will have to go to a paid membership to hear them, which will kill them.

The best conditions I see today are radio stations that advertise you can listen via streaming and they will keep listeners who are at a computer to listen. But remember, they are advertising the hell out of it.

City radio is a good way to relax and to know something which happeded in the city. It was more popular in the past times. Nowardays, the web media is more popular and it gains much more business value the city radio. Wed media is more concenient in interaction.
