The Spirit of Radio
“As a source of information, local radio transcends the conveyance of explicit knowledge about a community and provides a tacit knowledge of the character of a community and a person's place within it. The importance of Internet radio is that it offers access to a uniquely local media source to a degree that other mediums such as television cannot duplicate because radio functions as a part of the unconscious experience of everyday life. This unique characteristic will increase the importance of local stations as they become more ubiquitous around the world, either as a force of cultural diversity and sensitivity or as a force of culturally imperial homogenization.
There is a connectedness between how local radio stations develop on the Internet and the role they will play in the global information society. The way in which this new medium develops will have a strong impact on its role in an increasingly multicultural global society. The depth of the potential impact of Internet radio is apparent in the level of tacit connection to the culture and identity it is capable of conveying. It is impossible to tell the future impact that Internet radio will have on the world society.”
From "The Spirit of Radio" by David K. Burke in The Dalhousie Journal of Information and Management
