Broad Spectrum Radio has proudly been broadcasting an ecclectic mix of radio programming on international shortwave stations, local AM & FM stations, and online (at BroadSpectrumRadio.com) for more than a year.

Almost all of these costs have been covered by myself (James M. Branum, project director and host of many of the programs of BSR) but this is not a sustainable model, so I'm asking for listeners and fans to step up and help make a difference.

Plans for 2017

Contingent on the availability of funds, BSR will be airing on the following schedule:

  • Weekly 15 minute local magazine format show in Oklahoma City - airing on KTLR Community Talk Radio 890 AM as well as their FM translator
  • Weekly 30 minute shortwave magazine format show - airing on WBCQ to North America, Central America and when lucky Europe and beyond.
  • Monthly One hour special programs - airing on Channel 292, Rohrbach, Bavaraia, Germany to the avid shortwave listeners of Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and Russia
  • Additional broadcasts with donated air time, possibly by KVOY radio (in cooperation with Upwave Media), Unique Radio 3210 (in New South Wales, Australia) and other stations willing to air our content.
  • Online broadcasts of everything aired on OTA radio stations, as well as additional online-only content
The approximate cost for air time and internet costs only to keep up this schedule would be $3,500 USD (this varies a bit based on the exchange rate with the European relay station and other variables), or approximately $291 USD per month. To provide a little bit of cushion (and ideally the chance to run aditional one hour special programs in Europe), I am seeking to raise $400 per month.
