acik radyo (open radio), the regional radio station boradcasting to the istanbul area, is celebrating its tenth annivesary. being a private company which nevertheless functions as a non-profit organization, acik radyo survives with funds recevied from listeners. they have launched the listener support project three years ago and today is the sixth day of the third listener support week. the special broadcast program can be found here. do not miss it and listen to it online, regardless of your location on the “universe.” as is stated in the open radio manifesto, they are open to all sounds, colours and vibrations of the universe.
personal recommendation: the special program rocks big time. the special week started with ugur yucel last saturday, two hours of pure jazz spiced with personal anecdotes. today’s presenters are murathan mungan and cem yilmaz. (mm is talking about garbage at the very moment.)
