Internet Radio during Corona: On the MIC by the crisis

With music everything goes better self-Cleaning. If you want to swing of momentum, MOP and broom, you can turn on recently the radio station J7, and on Saturdays from 10 am to 12 am follow the program "cleaning rags". J7 is a new Internet radio station from Bad Nauheim. Jan Ostheimer and Jürgen Mirbach founded it, and want to make no less than the people happy.

The two result in an event Agency with the same Name in the Wetterauer Spa town. However, in your industry Corona has left hardly a stone on the other. So they wanted to find other ways to stay in the conversation. With their passion for music, the concept for the Internet radio station was born. In addition, it was clear that they only promote their own brand, but other companies want to support by giving them a platform.

the Radio these days, is not perhaps the first thought when one thinks of a new business model. But also not entirely far-fetched, given the variety of Podcasts that come almost daily onto the market. Ostheimer and Mirbach wanted to make the classic Radio and play music that is not elsewhere to be heard. How you got on to that? Earlier he trained in Latin dance formations, says Ostheimer, since music has always been an important part of his work. Mirbach is a classical music Fan, loves Opera, and has sung in Opera choruses, and the chamber Opera in the Frankfurt palm garden. "I would be very, singing, very happy again," he says. But he could not guarantee the participation in samples. In the case of J7, he has reserved for "classical music that makes you happy," the hour from 6 to 7 PM.

listen to Something else

On J7 is played around the clock music. And everything – or almost everything. "Folk music is not one of them," grins Ostheimer. And Heavy Metal also tend not to. Unless a listener requests a song in the special request hour. But from pop and Hip-Hop and Jazz to classical and Pop, everything is possible. Their stated goal: they want to give the listeners the opportunity to listen to something else, nothing is Predictable, because there is at the other stations well enough.

A nice idea, but all the plans to be realized. You mean: How to start a radio station? Ostheimer points to the omniscient search engine, the information about licenses and fees. "Everyone is familiar with the Gema, but the international offshoot, the GVL, don't know the least, I knew them in any case." But Ostheimer, who once studied media design with a focus on Film and radio, realized what he has set in the head. So, were made within a week all of the applications. After the two got the required equipment, to on 15. To go in may for the first Time "on the air".
