A KPFK FOLIO of 1967 has editorial that shows how closer to it's origins there was open discussion and sharing with listeners ideas, questions, and even the monthly mailing of a filmy printed schedule with original artworks, poetry and even an editorial.

Activists Host "Radio Summer" in San Diego August 29 (tags)

Members of San Diego's activist community gathered together at the Media Arts Center in North Park on August 29 to hear about how low-power FM (LPFM) radio can create new opportunities for progressive media and break the Right-wing stranglehold on the local airwaves. The attendees heard a presentation via Skype from Philadelphia-based Ian Smith of the Prometheus Radio Project, which was instrumental in lobbying Congress and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for the LPFM opportunity in the first place, and also heard from representatives of the World Beat Center, Media Rights Coalition and Activist San Diego.

Media Arts Center Hosts "Radio Summer" August 29 (tags)

The Prometheus Radio Project, a nationwide organization working to broaden the range of community voices available on America's audio airwaves, scored a major victory in July when the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) finally set up a licensing rule for thousands of new low-power FM (LPFM) radio stations, including some in urban areas previously ineligible for these grass-roots local stations. Now Prometheus is promoting a series of events called "Radio Summer" to organize people to obtain these licenses and get their stations on the air. The Media Arts Center of San Diego is hosting a "Radio Summer" event Monday, August 29, 6 to 8 p.m. at their office, 2921 El Cajon Boulevard (near 30th St.) in North Park, with a wide variety of other organizations in coalition. So if you're tired of the San Diego airwaves seeming to be the private preserve of the extreme Right, that's where you need to be next Monday!

Do Cell Phones Really Cause Cancer? (tags)

Cell phones use a form of radiation called radio frequency (RF) to send their signal. This RF radiation is regulated by the FCC, and has been deemed safe by a number of government and private scientific studies. However, some studies have found that the radiation from cell phones may increase the chance of developing cancer and other health problems.

Poor, poor, pitiful Michael Powell. His term as chairman of the Federal Communications Commission was supposed to be easy.

And yes, it is the same media company that allegedly "blacklisted" certain songs following September 11, including Cat Stevens' Peace Train and John Lennon's Imagine.

On Friday, March 12, the ‘Angels of Public Interest" descended upon the headquarters of the FCC. Head of the FCC, Michael Powell (son of US war criminal Colin Powell) recently approved the existence of even worse corporate media monopolies than ever before. The angels attempted to enter the FCC building to speak to either Michael Powell or a representative. However, the protesters were blocked by baton/stick wielding police officers who made very clear that they would use force to stop them from entering a building that supposedly represents the public good. AmeriKKKa, a democracy? Yeah, Right!
