Low Power, Local Voices

Low Power, Local Voices

Abby Zimet

A lovely, unlilkely dent in the Wal-Mart-ization of America: "The Montana Radio Cafe - Front Porch Radio Served Fresh Daily," the low-power KXZI,
created by former folksinger Scott Johnston and heard at "a screaming
100 watts" within about three-and-a-half miles, though it once
magically made it to 20. Thanks to the internet and a bill before
Congress, Johnston and his independent ilk may soon prosper and
multiply. Nice interactive package here

"Really unique voices need to be heard. I think that's about as American as you can get."
