Thank you Thad, I will try that.

... which actually lead me to a more general question: I understand that 
schema.org functions more like a standardization body while Freebase 
schemas are edited by the community more in a Wikipedia fashion. This 
results in schema.org being cleaner, having less redundancy, and usually 
there is only one way to model one thing. Now if I project myself in a 
close future I can see that my radio station will publish its info on 
its own website using schema.org. That data will be harvested by 
crawlers and then get back to the public, maybe automatically written to 
Freebase or Wikidata. If this scenario makes sense schema.org and 
Freebase schemas will slowly converge, or said differently schema.org 
will evolve to be able cover all the domains in Freebase. Is it a 
plausible scenario ?
