Social networking moves a step forward with the unveiling of the first social

networking radio station, Studyvox FM.

Launched on March 25 by Ed Vaizey, minister for communication, culture and the creative industries, StudyVox FM is an online radio station for businesses, charities, communities, organisations and individuals who can network their own shows with links between StudyVox FM and their own websites.

A personalised overhead-free radio show can be set up in a cost-effective manner with the help of StudyVox FM. The station will also act as a platform for unsigned bands and is applying for funding to host a radio show produced by disabled people.

StudyVox FM supports The StudyVox Foundation, a charity for undergraduates seeking help with tuition fees, and has pledged to provide its services to charities on a cost-only basis so that they can put out regular messages to supporters and donors.

Kevin Martin, StudyVox FM's creative director, said: "Like the Government, we believe in truly local, community radio which, until now, has sadly been absent from the broadcasting landscape for most of Britain. StudyVox FM will greatly help this development: we'll furnish the training needed to start and run an online radio station and can provide all the equipment for a radio station in a box. StudyVox FM also offers website design and hosting - and the internet streaming facilities - if required."
