High Frequency

For a pair of upstart Internet broadcasters, if it ain't local, it ain't live.

It's conceivable that a well-run local online radio station supported by burgeoning artists could eventually muster a significant amount of influence, especially given the success that KPFT (90.1 FM) has had operating under a similar business model.

The roles for Pannell and Ram seem clear enough. Pannell is the brain, Ram is the heart. They answer questions with different words, but mostly say the same thing. The most obvious, most important question to ask here is "Why?"

Ram works for a company that he asked not be named, but that pays him a fair amount of money. Pannell's father runs a painting and contracting company. So why would anybody leave their cushy full-time job or eventual inheritance to play music on the Internet that, maybe, nobody is too interested in hearing in the first place?

"We wanted this to be about everybody coming together for the music," says Ram. "We have an amazing city. We have so much soul. There's so much to the music. Nobody has ever given us our love. We have to do it ourselves. We have to make a way for ourselves. That's what they did before us. That's what we're going to do."

"We're never going to charge an ­artist to play their music," he continues. "This is Local Live music on a ­worldwide level. If it ain't local, it ain't live."

Whats up with all these evil rude posts? Oh yea when people do good and let their light shine as bright as capable, the evil tend to not be able to handle the brightness and try to obscure it with negativity.

The Sages elaborate upon these biblical beliefs (Makkot 11a; Eruvin 18b-19a; Terumah 3b-4a; Makkot 16a). Demons as well as human beings can utter curses
