Low Power FM radio stations can be a great addition to the media landscape in the big city, but on this episode we focus on rural LPFM. Eric Klein takes listeners on a tour of KFSL, the low power FM station that is the sole broadcaster in Fossil,Oregon (population 454). The station is staffed by a mere 3 volunteers, but it plays an important role in their community, especially in wildfire season.
In College Radio Watch, Jennifer Waits toured WGTB at Georgetown University, the college station with a very interesting history in Washington D.C. both on, and off the air.
As a bonus at the end of this fifty-second episode, Paul and Eric discuss their reasons for doing the hard work of producing a weekly podcast for Radio Survivor.
