Low Power Radio Roundup

The LPFM Radio Roundup will be held Saturday & Sunday on the UC Davis campus.

We're not calling it a conference because it's a little more hands-on and a little less formal than most conferences. What attendees can expect is great information provided by real-life LPFM practitioners and experienced media advocates.

Day 1: "The Low Power Radio Roundup"
will include three tracks: Production & Programming, Management/Technical, and Outreach & Developmen t; with several workshop sessions in each. The keynote speaker this day is Hannah Sassaman of Prometheus Radio Project.

Day 2: "Building a News Department on a Shoestring" *
will offer a series of hands-on workshops on two tracks, management and production, where you will learn the ins and outs of radio news production. Led by reporters and producers from Free Speech Radio News, National Radio Project, KPFA, FRSC, KDVS, KCSB, Indybay's ECR et al., these workshops will teach you everything from managing a newsroom and writing for radio to field recording and sound editing. Find out exactly how much easier news production is than it sounds.

*just added! A Radio Theater track has been added to Sunday's activities. Find out how to make great sound effects, write plays for radio and discover other sources of radio plays.

If you register in September, cost will be $35 for both days (or $25 for Saturday only, or $10 for Sunday only). Low-cost housing options will be available. (Look for that on the Registration Form.)

We have invited over a hundred LPFM stations in CA, NV, and OR. Based on a survey we did in June, we are expecting 60-75 participants, LPFM practitioners from around the region.
