List of audio files recorded (number of minutes) by Philippe Boucher for Voice of Bainbridge from March 31 to October 6, 2004 This is a chronological log. Most but not all of the recordings have been posted on the site.
I started working on projects to develop digital audio programs in February 2004.
I just reread the Earth Communication proposal I wrote on February 10 2004: it is certainly too ambitious in its multimedia scope (it blends print, web and audio) but I believe it is still an accurate assessment of the way environmental groups neglect radiobroadcast and the new digital tools.
I submitted this plan to 3 local foundations with an interest in environmental issues: Bullitt, Brainerd and Russell Family. The latter never answered back while the first two responded negatively.
It all started with frustration, searching for a decent radio program on Sunday night while washing the dishes. Besides the lack of talk programs, Philippe Boucher wanted to hear more programs about Bainbridge, the environment and political issues not covered by mainstream media. "But how do you serve a community like Bainbridge Island?" said Boucher, a Winslow resident. "The logic is we should have our own radio (station)."
