Announcement Regarding our Broadcasts

Unfortunately, in recent weeks, there have been several instances where Dialogos Radio did not air as scheduled on several of the radio stations which comprise our 15-station broadcast nework, either on the air or on their online streams. We are aware of the issue, and we are doing everything possible to ensure that Dialogos Radio is heard across the entire network each week, on time and as scheduled, without any problems. Unfortunately though, this is not always possible. The radio stations which make up our network are, for the most part, small, non-commercial or volunteer-run or community-based stations, with small staffs and budgets. These stations often encounter technical problems of their own, as well as human error and other issues. Unfortunately, from our end, there is not a whole lot that we can do about such problems when they arise. From the moment we send our recorded programming to each station in our network to air, it’s completely out of our hands and we can’t predict or prevent issues which each individual station may encounter.

For those listeners who may have missed one or more of our recent shows, there are always alternatives: you can tune to one of the other stations in our broadcast network (the full lineup is available at dialogosmedia.org), you can hear our broadcasts daily on our online station Dialogos Radio 24/7, or you can hear our programming on-demand direct from our archives, at http://dialogosmedia.org/?page_id=19. Whatever happens, we will ensure that there will always be multiple ways to tune in to our broadcasts.

To kick off our broadcast season, we will feature a reairing of our interview with filmmaker Lamprini Thoma, producer of the acclaimed Greek documentary Palikari: Louis Tikas and the Ludlow Massacre. This is part of Dialogos Radio’s media sponsorship of the U.S. screening tour of Palikari, which will take place in September and October in cities across the United States! Musically, we will also feature some music from the recently departed Antonis Vardis, one of the biggest names in Greek music of the past few decades.

We will also be adding a new feature to our broadcasts this season, the commentary of the week, where we will offer brief, opinionated viewpoints on matters pertaining to Greece and to the worldwide Greek community. And, in addition, we will offer our usual quality mix of Greek music from multiple genres and eras, as well as occassional cultural segments! And once again, our podcasts, our mobile apps for Android, Kindle, and BlackBerry devices, our on-demand programming, and our online radio station Dialogos Radio 24/7 will be fully operational and available across various multimedia platforms, allowing you to take our programming anywhere with you, across the world!

Dialogos Radio is a non-profit, non-commercial radio program which is run entirely by volunteers, and whose operating expenses have grown signficantly as our program and our related ventures have expanded. We have a number of exciting premiums available in exchange for your contribution, and more details about the fundraiser are forthcoming.

We are excited to be back on the air again, and look forward to your feedback, comments, and support!
