Well, this isn’t exactly radio drama, but a fun project by someone affiliated with WMPG and of possible interest to Portland, Maine listeners and maybe those from elsewhere, too.? Last month, former WMPG Office Manager ?DJ Mindwrecker? launched PortlandMaine.TV, a so-called “YouTube for Maine.”? This month, he has created another new community site for the Maine Music Community and beyond. PortlandMaine.TV now has its first “sub-channel site”, MaineMusic.TV, which is a messageboard for musicians and bands to post shows and discuss Maine Music, in all genre’s.
Like PortlandMaine.TV, MaineMusic.TV is designed to give Mainer’s a media outlet to disuss all the music that Maine has to offer. From bands, DJ?s, producers, and artists, all musicians and Maine music fans are invited to join and contribute to the discussion. It is free to join, and post your ideas and show dates/services.
I haven’t had too much time to bomb around on the sites, but it looks like there is some amount of community activity, which is going to be essential to gaining any sort of critical mass.? Obviously the numbers aren’t going to be crazy (this is, after all, a small market), but a fair amount of the right kind of targeted traffic will make or break this really interesting start-up.? All the best of luck to PortlandMaine.tv and MaineMusic.tv, from Portland’s foremost radio drama blog!
