The opportunity for new low power community radio is coming this October, and Prometheus Radio Project is hosting a free hour-long webinar to help your community group get on the air. The webinar happens Wednesday, June 26, at 8 PM Eastern time. On hand will be guest speaker Ramon Ramirez, president of Oregon’s Farmworker Union, who will share how his group’s station has helped them organize workers, register voters and support the union’s causes.
Prometheus Radio’s policy director Brandy Doyle joined media scholar John Anderson on today’s edition of community radio WORT’s A Public Affair, to discuss this opportunity along with the history and context of LPFM. You can find links to stream or download the program at the WORT archives page. Or your can stream it directly using this link: http://archive.wort-fm.org/pls.php?mp3fil=13987. The interview begins at the 10 minute mark.
