RadioMicro is a micronational internet radio program started by Anthony Clark of the Republic of Mcarthia in May 2015. It is currently hosted by Clark, who is supported by a small cadre of additional crew. The program has received critical acclaim in the MicroWiki community for its reputation as an interesting and professional show featuring news, educational segments, interviews, and music.

History

RadioMicro was created by Anthony Clark of the Republic of Mcarthia in friendly competition to Rhys Gregory's MicronationTV. He decided to keep it a purely audio based show based on the belief that the level of simplicity would lead to a product of higher quality.

On June 24, 2015, Clark announced an indefinite withdrawal from the MicroWiki community, citing personal commitments. The production of RadioMicro was assumed to be on hold as a result.

On August 16, Clark announced the RadioMicro expansion plan. He created the RadioMicro Group, a parent company to subsidiaries: RadioMicro, news source themicronational, tabloid newspaper The Messenger, and the RadioMicro Awards.

Theme music

The theme music for RadioMicro has become quite well known. Entitled This is RadioMicro, it was written by Anthony Clark for small orchestra, and has been remixed in an electronic version for the Nollandish Confederacy 2015 Election coverage.

Critical response

The show has received critical acclaim from a number of sources, which mention its music, sound editing, writing and presenting.

Planned expansion

On 16 August 2015, Clark announced that he was going to "revitalise RadioMicro a bit" by "including [areas] which aren't necessarily radio as such, but fit in with a news agency". He stated that he did not necessarily intend to go through with all of his proposals, and that the suggested expansions were only ideas. Among the ideas were "RadioMicro Extra", a secondary channel of RadioMicro, with music and broader listener participation; "RadioMicro Polls", whereby polls would accompany every episode, to gather statistics and opinions; "RadioMicro Read", an "online platform for articles," that is, a written news source corresponding to RadioMicro; "RadioMicro Advertising"; and "RadioMicro Awards", a channel-sponsored set of prizes to be given to members of the Community for outstanding ability and effort in different fields. The creation of these (specifically the creation of RadioMicro Awards, which came first) lead to the formation of the RadioMicro Group.
