BENEFITING: Modesto Peace/life Center
EVENT DATE: Jan 15, 2017
As an erstwhile deejay at community radio station KDVS in Davis, I know how important it is for communities to have independently-run media for public affairs, news, and music. From the standpoints of intellectual freedom and community engagement, community radio is essential: it's a democratic form of media; it allows us to hear music and programs we would never otherwise have a chance to enjoy; and when it's done right, it engages the imagination. I'm excited to help the Modesto Peace Life Center's new radio project find a group of financial supporters and potential volunteers.
About the station: the Modesto Peace/Life Center just got its construction permit last year in August to build a full-power FM radio station. They are first planning web streaming to help get the word out that they are creating a radio station.
They don’t have the equipment to do this yet, so that's where we come in!
