Radio Automation

I read this journal entry about radio automation from Linux Journal editor Phil Hughes with interest. I just sent an email to him and Doc Searls (from whose weblog I found this entry) about my experiences writing automation software for WREK. At the time, I wondered about commercializing what I had done or at least getting into the business of consulting on radio station automation software but my big fear was that there wasn’t enough demand to make a go of it (and that one would have no choice but to become a road warrior, going where the jobs were). Interesting stuff to think about, and I like to think I’m at the upper end of informedness on this issue – not about the market, on which subject I am woefully ignorant – but on how to pull such a thing off.
