Internet Radio in the life of Suliko…

Is there a gap for Suliko to listen to on the Internet radio? Internet radio is a medium for audio broadcasting that is similar in concept to traditional radio. The difference is that, as opposed to a standard AM or FM radio signal, Internet radio is transmitted directly to computers or similar devices via the Internet. Basically, Internet is seen nowadays as universal transportation system for communications.

No matter which category of internet radio you are using (standard simulcasting of regular

FM/AM radio, music recommendation, or an internet exclusive radio network), they all take advantage of streaming technology. When an audio or video signal is streamed it is continually being received by a user in a signal over which they have no control. Streaming media is integral to a popular form of Internet radio where regular radio stations are simulcast over the Internet in real time as they are being broadcast over regular radio airwaves.
Another type of Internet radio are services built on music recommendation. Pandora Radio for example, works thanks to a simple computer algorithm that plays songs that are similar to the ones you’ve requested. You start out by requesting an artist, and when a song by said artist is finished Pandora plays one that their staff and users have ranked as similar (Did you play Nani Bregvadze? Well, then you might like the Ishkhneli Sisters). Other Internet radio services like Last FM operated in a similar manner to Pandora.
The last major type of internet radio service is servers that house internet-exclusive radio networks. As opposed to simply recommending music or simulcasting AM/FM radio, services like SHOUTcast are home to content exclusive to the Internet, created by amateurs and professionals alike. These operate essentially exactly like AM/FM radio, only they’re on the Internet. These radio stations can feature talk radio, comedy, or music. The audio content is recorded on a user’s computer where it is then uploaded to the SHOUTcast server and accessed by listeners using the WinAMP application. The audio can be broadcast delayed or in real time, depending on the intentions of the user.
The question is whether is Internet penetration is high enough for Internet radio audience in Georgia and second question is whether Georgians are going to expand and grow number of people in the world who would like to adopt the unique communication tradition, sincere people, learn history of Georgia, science and factbooks, music and folklore.
The website www.radio.ge is done in the three languages Georgian, English and Russian.I think that the number of languages should be expanded to at least 5 European.You might ask me why I have chosen name Suliko for the title of this article-the reason is that foreigners liked very much traditional Georgian song “Suliko” (Georgian: ??????) is a Georgian female and male name meaning ‘soul’. It is also the title of a love poem written in 1895 by Akaki Tsereteli, which became widely known throughout the world as a song performed with music composed by Varenka Tsereteli. It was also translated and performed in multiple languages including Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, English and German. Where are you my Suliko ? I’m on www.radio.ge.
