Have you ever thought about setting up a small FM broadcast station for your community and considered such an endeavor much too involved and expensive? This book demonstrates that it is not - and, it will inspire you to make the effort. Of all the media and communications technologies, radio is the most accessible and democratic. By asserting your right to communicate, you become part of the struggle for free speech, resisting the privatization of yet another public resource, the broadcast airwaves. If you can not communicate, you can not organize; if you can not organize, you can not fight back; and, if you can not fight back, you have no hope of winning.
This book was illustrated and written by T.J. Enrile in conjunction with Free Radio Berkeley. T.J. is a student in Multimedia Studies at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, California. It is a graphic guide reflective of the popular education style prevalent in Latin America. A Spanish version will be available by the end of September.
T.J. and folks from Free Radio Berkeley will talk about this book and current projects to empower people with the skills, knowledge, technology and ability to build and set up their own community radio stations.
7PM start. FREE
