Pirate Cat radio says that the operation has “two FM stations that it has the option of purchasing,” but it needs $60,000 to do so. Hence a fund-raising drive on the Kickstarter site.
The Kickstarter campaign has until October 21 to raise the money.
San Francisco’s Pirate Cat has an interesting history. For a while it was an unlicensed station, then it went off the air following government pressure, then it starting providing programming for a station in Pescadero.
Now here it is, pursuing a legit license! Next thing you know, the staff will be doing presentations at the next NAB convention in Vegas! (Just kidding).
