Free Radio

I have been intrigued for some time by the possibilities of "free radio" or "micropower" stations as an alternative to the pablum we confront on commercial stations and almost all non-profit or public radio. Today I discovered* an (admittedly, quite poorly written) article on the subject at Counterpunch and a couple of useful links [1] [2] and thought I'd pass them along. You might also have a look at Greg Ruggiero Microradio & Democracy: (Low) Power to the People (Open Media Project/7 Stories Press, 1999) which you can get access to here.
*Thanks to Mark Woods.

Here's a pretty good article published in Afterimage on the subject from the mid-90's

"The revolution will be microwaved: the FCC, microwatt radio, and telecommunication networks - Federal Communications Commissions"

Since the link does not work well in google (it just leads to the Afterimage archive, I checked. If you want to track down the article it is in the Summer 1994 issue.
