Coming Soon: Better Radio

BetterArts is taking the next step toward having its very own radio station operating out of Better Farm.

We reported back in December 2010 that Congress passed the Local Community Radio Act, a bill that would expand radio stations for Low Power FM and which mandates the FCC to license virtually thousands of new stations.

In conjunction with that effort, the FCC recently posted an interactive map designating approved locations for low-power FM stations.  Lo and behond, Better Farm would be an approved location for a “rural” low power FM station under the new FCC rules!

There is an application to be filled out and filed by next fall, as well as sorting out equipment and licensing. 

But imagine: BetterArts showcasing local musicians, recorded music from our record collection, interviews with local farmers, artists, and musicians, gardening and green-living tips, and retransmission of other programming.
