Is there a space on Medium Wave to fill?

There’s much speculation on this site about the return of offshore radio from a ship and we know that is not going to happen. Major broadcasters throughout Europe have withdrawn from Medium Wave in recent years, although there is still a significant amount of traffic there. We know that there are many “alternative platforms” available, to use the current parlance So what if by some strange chance it was possible to start a new (legal) station on Medium Wave - and don’t forget that Caroline did it a few years ago - would there be an audience? There are clearly still several millions of MW receivers in existence and you can hardly argue that there are no channels available. If you had a sufficiently interesting station could it work, perhaps on a not-for-profit basis like for example some of the internet-based stations?
