Hmm...interesting topic and problem! Would this be a talk show format,
or music and entertainment? If it were talk show, the likelihood is to
run on AM radio, right?
I think I`m starting to see a foundation here. The idea of a proposal
might be a distraction. If you`re looking for your own radio show,
you`re almost assuredly going to have to have audition tapes. People
won`t buy you unless they`ve heard you.
One option would be to find a way to generate the show in such a tiny
market that nobody cares. For example, if I were going to develop a TV
show based on how my philosophy interacts with school kids, my first
step would be to have it on the local Batavia cable station---the
all-access town station.
They have no content at all, other than maybe City Hall meetings. :-)
Y`know? They`d be far more likely to give me a time slot if I did all
the work, produced the whole show, gave them a programming outline, and
covered it for say 3 months.
However, during that time I`d be building a library of example and
audition tapes. Then I`d send them to the next bigger market, perhaps a
city with more than 30,000 people.
It comes down to several questions. Do you intend to host the radio
show, or produce it? Will it be audio or visual? What`s your overall
plan or intent for having a show in the first place? How will you know
that you`ve succeeded?
