www.Vocalo.org is a project that Chicago Public Radio is producing in order to open up the airwaves to the community. It's a kind of youtube for the Radio. If you want to get on the air, it's just a matter of signing up for an account and producing content. If you have a telephone, then you have a recorder as they have a call in number for people to record content.
Vocalo even offers session where contributors can come into the studios and learn how to use professional audio equipment for free. It's an amazing experiment.
Recently, another contributor took me aside at the WBEZ social to interview me about my balloon biking.
