1:40:09PriorCaster, by Bob LeMent of Static Radio and Morning Commute, seeks to document the people who were the pioneers of audio on the internet.

James O’Brien has worn many hats, but I think his best one is independent media producer.  He embodies the passion and drive that anyone who wants to produce their own media should look up to.

Starting with Rant Radio, most likely the first 24/7 independent streaming radio station back in January 1999, onto Rant TV which did the same for video in 2003. His projects and passions for internet media were fierce and incredibly independent.

As James has moved through his hobby of creating media, it has led to a kind of dream gig as an independent filmmaker, where he still explores the world for projects that fit his interests.
