[6:00 AM] New Mac Dedicated Radio Station To Launch
by Staff

MacOS Radio has announced that it will launch its Internet based radio station dedicated to the Mac. The first broadcast will take place on July 10. According to MacOS Radio:

Available to any Macintosh or Windows computer connected to the Internet and running Apple's QuickTime 4 software, MacOS Radio will initially broadcast live for one hour per week with plans to expand to three one hour broadcasts per week before the end of the year. Following each broadcast, a "taped" version will be available until the next live broadcast.

MacOS Radio is also the Internet's first, Internet only broadcast station using only Apple technology to produce its content. Using Apple's advanced Mac OS X Server operating system and QuickTime Streaming Server, Mac OS Radio will be capable of reaching thousands of listeners simultaneously from its very first broadcast.

Hosted by Duane Burghard, the first broadcast will begin at 6:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Monday, July 10 (a five minute "pre-broadcast warm up" will precede each show) and will feature news and opinions on current events relevant to the Mac OS, an interview with Roger Kasten of Newer Technologies and a call in segment for listeners on the Internet to call in and share their views. Other scheduled guests for the first month include Ryan Meader, CEO of Black Light Media and author of the very popular Mac OS Rumors Web site and Gretchen Steckel, Marketing Director for QPS.

The broadcast will end at approximately 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Additional broadcasts will be made each Monday evening in July at the same time (except July 17, when the live version of the show will be broadcast three hours early to accommodate staff travel to the MacWorld Conference and Expo).

You can tune in at the MacOS Radio web site.

The Mac Observer Spin: We are happy to see a new show join the ranks of The Mac Show, the Mac online broadcast that has been going for 5 years. A little competition will help raise awareness of the concept immensely and the end result should be more traffic to both broadcasts.
