I've always had this dream of starting my own radio station for some reason. It just seems like fun. I guess that's what podcasts are for in the modern world, but that doesn't really appeal to me. Anyone here ever tried their hand at radio?

Scroll down for, "Creating my own radio station" by Malfoy. There's a whole heap'n help'n of requirements, license's and equipment to employ just to get started. Which shouts out, "money,money,money.....money". That podcast looks better and better.

I agree that you would need a huge investment to be able to start your own radio station. Again, would you be looking to recoup some amount from the initial investment?

Presumably, if one would like to venture down this path, they'd have a sizable financial debt to repay. But I don't think you could tell a banker you wanted to do this venture just for fun and expect them to hand a check over.
A pipe dream has to be grounded in some reality of what you have to undertake to pull it off. Maybe if you told the banker you had Herb Tarlek from the old sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati as your advertising exec. they'd hand over that check.

True enough, I didn't catch that thread. Thanks for pointing it out to me, Rusty. I know it's not really financially feasible, but hey, it's fun to think about!

Or maybe Bebe from Fasier. Cool

I think it would be kind of cool to sign on for about 4 hours a day and do a talk show/Q and A on cars from my garage. Or old music for that matter and sprinkle in music from a turntable and vinyl...........from my garage.

Here's what I'm thinking: Someone retired with 2 comma's in their bank account. Living out in the sticks with little to no radio reception. A passion for doing it with little else going on in their lives.

What I'm thinking is my own pipe dream. Cool
