(Wheatheads)"Whole Wheat Radio
(WWR) is a listener controlled, internet-only webcast
and wiki website based in Talkeetna, Alaska
, centered around independent music
aired 24 hours a day, that is financially and operationally maintained by an all-volunteer community as a grassroots alternative to mainstream media. WWR's listener driven webcast
and real-time interactive community, distinguish it from other streaming
webcasts, social music networks
, and peer to peer
music file sharing websites........Though Jim Kloss and Esther Golton host WWR from their home in Talkeetna, listeners control the music and other on-air content heard throughout the day through the website's request pages.......To listen to the Whole Wheat Radio webcast, participate in the chat and/or contribute to the wiki a listener needs only a computer, an internet connection, a software music player and a browser....
....WWR's technological innovations have facilitated the growth of a small virtual community that is driven by the audience and not station management. Known as Wheatheads, regular listeners interact in a "chat room", request, rate and tag music, send original music, write to artists and create wiki pages.
An example of technology reaching the world from a small rural town in Alaska, WWR's low-profile adult format succeeds without typical web advertising or competitive musical hype. Typically, WWR reaches more SHOUTcast listeners on a daily basis than any other webcast originating in Alaska." - from WikipediaI just checked

The music is fantastic, and the people are great!
