Portrait: MetroRadio

When you come to METROPOLIS and listen to the stream on a lot of regions you will hear the broadcast of MetroRadio, a streaming service within the grid. That was reason enough for "The Hyperzette" to interview the people behind the scene.

Hyperzette:
Since when is MetroRadio on air ?


MetroRadio:
MetroRadio is an older Project, which was fade in the background due to time reasons. In the year 2013 the project was almost canceled but on a lot of Metro's request a new team took over.


Hyperzette:
Who in person is operating MetroRadio ?


MetroRadio:
Project board: Duncan Metro and Sheera Khan
Furthermore the administration of the grid and members of the old team are helping in the background.


Hyperzette:
What is the sense and purpose of the radio?


MetroRadio:
In the first place it offers a stream with German GEMA and GVL license. The stream is funded by donations.
The stream is used for events within the grid. Each member of the METROPOLIS grid can use it for  private parties to name an example. Meanwhile there is almost one event on each weekend using the stream.

Hyperzette:
Which group of listeners do you target at ?

MetroRadio:
Each and every resident of METROPOLIS
