Just kidding... but a multilingual program and discussions on translation topics and anecdotes, plus translation tips and etc may boost volunteering for some of our teams! Paula and I are eager for ideas and.. yes, volunteers!15 votes
In the same way that it is making room for all languages, Global Voices could maybe use its radio to explore and discover traditional and modern music from all around the world.
It is a wide subject, but we could give it a structure by picking a region each week and hearing old and new, famous and unknown musicians, singers and bands.
I am happy to help in developing this idea if GV thinks it is worth trying !9 votes
The idea is to invite young musicians to perform online. This will give them some public exposure and be a kind of first experience. Many young and talented musicians have difficulty to make their way into show-biz exactly because they are young, too little known, nobody's nephew... Let's give them an opportunity to make the first step.
Some interesting discoveries could be done in this field. In this regard, I remember a musical producer who refused to launch 4 young and talented guys because they were too little known to the public. Well...the guys (Lennon, McCartney, Starr, Harrison) found another…8 votes
I'm thinking it would be awesome to have a cultural section for sharing and commenting cultural contents (books, movies, music) that are under open licensing schemes or are in public domain. It would also involve sharing knowledge about the Open Culture movement. As a fiction writer and an open culture activist, I would love to contribute to that!

The diversity of countries on GV is a huge plus. It can be used in a program to introduce local cultures from each country. Books, music, arts.. You name it.
We can also host local cultural / intellectual figures in each country. Of course translating such programs into other languages is still an advantage.4 votes
Kevin and I would like to pitch a separate RuNet Echo podcast/show, that we would record and produce ourselves. The show would be bi-weekly and would be an overview of stuff happening on the Russian-speaking internet. We're still plotting, but we think the show could be anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes long. We're working on the script structure at the moment.
We'd love to stream the recorded podcast on the GV Radio at a set time every two weeks, and would also make it available for download through iTunes and on the RuNet Echo website.

As you all know, the African Music industry is trying to cut boundaries, it would be great if GV gave a chance to the young musicians in this cause. We run interviews of established and also focus on reviewing new artists' music to give them a platform.
This is typically about African music with segments like:
1. Gossip and news about celebrities,
3. Brand new tracks.
4. Velocity Tracks(Songs that are breaking to the world market very fast)
Why should you have such a show?
1. Musicians have a big following and in that matter when they are…3 votes
