In Our Opinion: Cheers



To Otsego County Rep. John Kosmer for creating an Internet radio station. 

His station, which can be found at, went live last month.

The station includes programming of Democracy Now and Alternative News, and will feature shows about sustainable living, horticulture and culinary arts. Vintage shows such as “Abbott and Costello,” “Burns & Allen,” “Dragnet” and “Hopalong Cassidy” can also be heard.

He said he hopes to develop a connection to the community by streaming audio of local events, as well.

Kosmer, a freshman representative who is active in the anti-fracking movement, said he sees the station as an alternative way to communicate with people who now exchange information through “wordy” emails.

“This is another medium,” he said. “We wanted something else that goes past that. It’s a great experiment. That’s the way I look at it.”

We applaud him on his effort, and for looking outside the box to spread his message.
