Perhaps I spoke with you yesterday, from the Media Center dug-out during GA? Anyway, I think its a brilliant idea. I'd like to add two comments.

First, and I mentioned this yesterday, I think that the Open Source Working Group is probably better suited for handling this project. People from that group are developing mobile apps for the movement, and this definitely qualifies. 

Second, I think I read a shout-out for folks who might have, or would be willing to acquire, a Ham Radio Operator's License. The concept 'Occupy the Air!' even rhymes with 'Occupy the Square!' It's perfect! Anyway, I'm sure we can get people on-board who would love to share their pirate radio skills. We can keep transmission area small, just within the park, though there are certainly legal issues that would have to be discussed. Some folks might want to steer clear of any potential acts which would offer the NYPD an excuse to raid us.

Between the two, I favor mobile phone apps for Android, iPhone, etc. Who the hell owns a transistor radio these days? I must admit though, the image of a few radios around the park, with groups of people gathering close together to listen to a broadcast, is pretty warm and fuzzy.

It boggles my mind why we haven't found a smart phone app to handle this yet!!!
