What a year+ ago was a “secret radio project” under the auspices of Chicago Public Radio has burst out as Vocalo, a now-online and soon to be normal-ish public radio station (if you consider that a station that doesn’t program news breaks, have traditional “shows”, with programming anchored by user-generated content funneled through it’s website to be “normal-ish”) that hopes to garner a large minority audience — at least larger than that of CPR.  It’s region specific, will feature plenty of stories told by real people, and best of all is mostly employed by non-radio people.  This should make some waves, definitely within public radio and hopefully beyond, and with all luck will be a model for other cities/regions to develop their own stations from.
