On January 5, President Obama signed into law the Local Community Radio Act, which paves the way for hundreds of noncommercial FM stations. Maybe more.
I was lucky enough to get a chance to write about the law, the opportunities it creates, and the long battle it took to make it happen. Also: what terrestrial radio means in the age of the iPad, and how this all dovetails with ideas about “the power of local.”
This meant I talked with a lot of really smart, engaged people and stumbled across a bunch of old, illuminating articles. So in the not-particularly-long tradition of last year’s cassette feature, I’ll be sharing a few little things here under the “LPFM” tag.
I hope you’ll enjoy hearing about all this stuff as much as I did!
I won’t have time to read through Marc Hogan’s article on Pitchfork until later tonight, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t go ahead and read it right now along with all of the other links he’s been posting.
Al Jazeera’s coverage of the popular uprisings in the Middle East is creating a lot of U.S. demand for the Qatar-based network’s English-language broadcasts. Unfortunately, Connecticut isn’t on the short list of places in this country where they’re available, at least not quite yet.
John Murphy, general manager of WHUS, says his community radio station is hoping to be able to broadcast Al Jazeera’s hour-long newscasts as soon as they become available.
So maybe The Hood Internet’s mixtape #5 isn’t your thing today. That’s cool. NPR has you covered: 100 quintessential jazz recordings as crowdsourced by the listeners of Jazz24.org. They appear to be streaming the whole list.
