NEWS:
By Dave Goodman | Jamaica Plain, MA | December 31, 2015

 

Following 20 years of interviews, features, special audio mixes and some of the best conversation on radio about human rights and economic democracy, the Independent Broadcast Information Service is ending its affiliation with the program “Radio with a View.”

 

Many hours were spent thinking about this decision. We’ve grown comfortable in our radio slippers, so to speak.

 

The shows we co-produced along with our friend and colleague Marc Stern this fall, proved to us that we had reached a certain pinnacle with this format. We conquered all we could. (look/listen here for 2 examples.)

 

Now it’s time to tackle new challenges and new formats.

 

We’re very proud of what we accomplished with the help of WMBR Radio. Successive management boards gave us an enormous amount of autonomy. We took advantage of that autonomy, but we have some regrets.

 

Recently, we watched the documentary “Radio Unnameable” about WBAI’s Bob Fass. Bob created a community with his show; not just passive listeners, but people who left the safety of their homes and fought battles over injustice. And had a party doing it too.

 

We didn’t work hard enough to promote that kind of service with “Radio with a View.” Perhaps with the next project.

 

All in all, it’s been a great ride. And I hope you’ll continue listening on Sunday mornings as Marc re-tools the show to fit his personality. 10am-noon Sundays over 88.1fm in Cambridge and wmbr.org. (My last day on the show will be Sunday, February 21, 2016 – the last day of WMBR’s  Fall/Winter term.)

 

Cheers,
dg

We produce news and feature stories for radio, audio, and multi-media sources. We provide recording, editing, and mixing services for programs, networks, non-profits, and just about anyone with a need for audio…which means just about anyone!

 

Because everything in this world must have an abbreviationit’s all in the name of “branding” of course – we call ourselves I.B.I.S. Radio. (pronounced Eye-bis, like the bird – pictured below). Although radio is our first love, we have our hands and feet knee-deep in online journalism, podcasting, audio slide shows, eLearning, and other multi-tasking, multi-mediums.

One of the purposes of this site is to aggregate and congregate the work produced and published by Dave Goodman, veteran radio producer, multi-media journalist, teacher, and mentat. (tip of the hat dept. to: Dune by Frank Herbert). Gradually, we’ll publish reports and ruminations from our friends too; folk such as history professor Marc Stern, photographer/publisher/editor and educator Jason Pramas and special surprise guests.

 

Browse through the menu above; it’s fairly self-explanatory. “CHURN” is where you’ll find Dave’s thoughts and ideas about culture and civilization. Yah, the subject matter will straddle a wide and deep sampling of concerns and interests.
“Radio at Work” features photographic evidence that radio producers and their collaborators actually do something in those ivory towers we call studios. Sometimes we even get outside and get our hands dirty.
