Why are you interested in FrontlineSMS? How did you hear about it? (To help us filter out spammers, we need as MUCH detail as possible, else we may not be able to approve your request. If you'd rather not share this information openly please email firstname.lastname@example.org before joining)
I am involved in a community media project. I think frontline sms is the route to go in zimbabwe since community radios are not allowed to go live on air as yet. I view this platform as a market place of ideas and information sharing since the like minded will be interacting on best practices. I got to know about frontline sms from my friend.
Tell us about you. (Please also add an image to your profile)
I am currently Getjenge FM(Plumtree Community Radio) Station manager. I am passionate about development and making a contribution towards helping develop my community. Media play a pivotal role in the dissemination and distribution of information which is key to the empowerment and development of any people. In my country, community radios are a new concept hence my desirefor my station(Getjenge FM) to be a model community radio that helps deliver positive change and development in my community.

I was interested to read your details about Getjenge radio station. You may already know that we are working on FrontlineSMS:Radio - a tailored version of the software optimised for radio DJs. Its currently in a closed beta with 3 stations but we will include more stations early next year. For more information, checkout http://radio.frontlinesms.com.
I am interested to know how your radio station interacts with the audience? Do you mostly use text message / voice calls / station visits? How many SMS do you receive a day? Is there a particular show which promotes more interaction? Do you ever run polls?
