Low Power, Local Voices

by
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."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Won't Exist.
