It’s time to get ready for National Radio Day on August 20. Paul Riismandel has the details at the top of the show, followed by an interview with Ernesto Aguilar, the incoming Membership Program Director of the National Federation of Community Broadcasters. He shares some highlights of the NFCB’s annual conference this past June, as well as the first-ever NFCB LPFM Summit.
Then Jennifer Waits joins to share two radio station tours of new low-power stations in the Washington, DC area: Takoma Radio WOWD-LP and WERA-LP. These tours spark a discussion about how the great diversity heard in community radio still is easily taken for granted.
