Anyone who thinks Radio is passé is simply mistaken. In fact, “Real Radio” has only been hibernating, enveloped in a “Reconditioning of the Classic” cocoon so to speak. Well that is, until now.
Radio being the original form of electronic social media, has temporarily been shuffled off into the recesses of “what was” and treated like a tired old remnant of the bygone past, overlooked amongst the glitz and dazzle of so many shiny newbies – in the dawning of this new social media age. Naturally the things that glitter most always steal our attention.
Real or Traditional Radio has been taking a back seat for some time now, watching from the sidelines, absorbing all the latest perspectives of the new and fresh faced social media starlets, while anticipating the perfect moment to re-emerge into the limelight..
RadioFlag is doing its part to set the stage for this day to arrive. It’s time to recognize that the “Newest Star” on the social media scene is also the “First Star” to grace the electronic social media stage. Sometimes the hardest things to see are the most familiar. We tend to look to the brand spanking newest of things instead of reconditioning the tried and true.
RadioFlag knows that a classic never goes out of style, it just can sometimes lose its luster, and all that is needed is some refurbishing, to regain its shine. RadioFlag’s charge is to give the classic Royalty of Retro, traditional radio, a fresh electronic spin, and crown it once again the King of Social Media. So RadioFlag, its DJs and listeners are happy to announce retro is back, vintage is viable, and real radio is alive. Radio is yet to see its finest power hour. The epic band ‘ Queen ‘ say it prophetically in their famous song ‘ Radio Gaga ‘ . Check out the lyrics and video below:
RadioFlag is setting up to accomplish its mission to renew, and rejuvenate traditional radio and get it ready to rock the mic with electronic vibrancy on this new wave of social media discovery. This classic social media star is being reborn; and setting forth to align the past, the future, and the present.
RadioFlag is hereby happy to introduce The Radio Star Blog, whose goal is to unite real radio lovers of all kinds across the globe, in a forum of live discovery and spontaneous social interaction.
