FCC Agents Visit San Francisco LIberation Radio

I saw it on the S.F Indymedia and thought it should be posted



FCC Agents Visit San Francisco Liberation Radio

by SFLR Saturday July 05, 2003 at 09:44 AM

sflr 'at' mail.com 415-648-9222 Twin Peaks

In what may portend a US Marshal-backed raid and seizure, San Francisco Liberation Radio received a courtesy call by FCC agents, who requested permission to inspect the premises and see a broadcast permit, on 7/2. Unlike its East Bay microradio cousins, San Francisco Liberation Radio (93.7 FM) has filed several FCC license applications, which may provide the legal clout to mount a vigorous 1st-amendment defense. More importantly, SFLR will be relying on the support of its community, including local politicos, as it wages a campaign to safeguard our right to community microradio. SFLR was given a letter warning against unauthorized broadcasting and threatened with jailtime and ,000 in fines...



PRESS CONFERENCE MONDAY EVENING AT 5PM! COME TO THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MEETING AND THEN THE STEPS OF CITY HALL (Polk St. Side) TO PRESSURE THE SUPES TO SUPPORT SAN FRANCISCO LIBERATION READIO 93.7FM!

San Francisco Liberation Radio 93.7 FM has been broadcasting for ten years now. Basing our authority to broadcast on the right to freely speak and the rights of individuals to have access to a free and diverse media, we have defied the FCC and brought the people of San Francisco a resource that is truly available to those who wish to use it. The station moved across town one year ago last May Day and since then we have received no word from the FCC, until now.

Last Wednesday at about 5pm federal agents came and delivered a "notice of illegal broadcasting". They were denied entry although they threatened up to a ,000 fine and time in jail. We have ten days to show them either a permit or "authority" to broadcast. We have been trying to get the San Francisco Board of Supervisors to pass a resolution in support of SFLR and Bay View Hunter's Point Radio 103.3, but have made limited headway. We hope that this latest visit will be the impetus needed for them to pass a resolution in support of freedom in media.

Especially now, with the new (de)regulations having just been passed in the Federal Communications Commission and the media becoming more and more homogenous, we need to show the FCC that this is an issue worth fighting for. A free and diverse media is not a thing of theoretical importance; it is an absolute necessity for a healthy democracy! Call your Supervisor! Tell them that this is an issue you care about and they should support a resolution backing San Francisco Liberation Radio 93.7FM and Bay View Hunter's Point Radio 103.3FM against an overbearing FCC with only the health and wealth of Corporate Media at heart!
