Low Power to the People: Radio Free Nashville

“In the spirit of neighbors pulling together to put up a new building, Prometheus holds radio barnraisings, events where we build individual community radio stations while advancing the movement for media democracy. Prometheus barnraisings allow new programmers to meet and new stations to compare notes on fundraising and equipment. At a typical barnraising, we bring expert facilitators to lead workshops on all sorts of topics of interest to new radio stations – like organizing within the FCC, introductions to different aspects of radio engineering, updates on media and democracy campaigns, and how radio can promote today’s social change.This short documentary profiles the barnraising of 98.9 WRFN-LPFM, Radio Free Nashville.” – Media Policy Blog

From the conference website:

Community Media Reaches Beyond Cable Television

“Community media is more than cable television production and transmission. Who are our media partners? While preserving the best of television, how can we reach out to new partners, tools and applications to enhance our services and relevance in our communities? How can we best use our centers to enrich, mobilize, and preserve our public interests?”
