Million-Dollar Ideas

Alternative Networks

Every once in awhile, the media get ahold of something fresh coming out of a local cable access or radio show.

Sometimes these things do get syndicated--Loveline started on Los Angeles radio station KROQ, and The Tom Greene Show began on Canadian cable--but if MTV doesn't share the wealth, who will?

You, that's who. Internet entrepreneurs are busy showing us new original short films (see "Online Film Distribution" on page 42) and creating their own radio shows, but it's time someone dusted off the old-school oddities to broadcast to Web freaks in the night.
