Radio Papaya is a Non-Profit community Sub Carrier Radio Station in the San Francisco Bay Area. We have been giving a "voice" to the Caribbean, French and African communities in Northern California for two years now. We provide a diversify Programming including: news from the Motherlands, world music, education, politics, cultural and religious live events in different linguages. Our goal is to bring cultural awareness to the public outside of the traditional mainstream.
Radio Papaya, for the year 2013, wants to bring the same "Cultural Togetherness" to the whole State of California with a Show called "Going on the streets". Our first big Live Broadcast event is: The New York Caribbean Musical Festival of Labor Day. The festival last 3 days. From August 30th September first. The main attraction is the Carnival on Eastern Parkway. Many other venues enrich the ethnic diversity of the festival. That festival is the biggest Cultural Melting Pot in United States of America. Your pledge will help us to be in the center of that cultural pool. And more importantly, bring it to different communities through Live Radio Broadcasting in the West coast. We need your support to lay The "Cultural Bridge" between the East and West coast communities. Music is an Universal language. And Radio Papaya wants to bring the Caribbean musical fever live to the West coast. Our next destination will be Florida for a similar event in November. And finally, thanks to David T Shelton invite, we intend to close the season of " Going on the Streets" in New Orleans in February 2014.

Risks and challenges
" Going on the Streets" is a real challenge for live Radio Broadcasting.Fourty years in the business is no guarantee that everything will always go smoothly. All microphones used on the ground are wireless. Same thing for the headphones. Reporters are divided in 3 sections along the " ROUTE": Beginning, Midway and Tail of the Parade. It can get " technickly tricky" for the Sound Engineer. Out of range reporters. Static interferences. Or just plain dead battery. And I am the one in the middle of it all. The " Coordinator ". I have a bunch of Broadcasting friends willing to work with me for the fun of it. Hoping they will not change their mind at the last minute. It would be a disaster if they do. I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
