Good news in New Orleans: after apparently having to make an emergency move earlier this month, Tulane University’s student radio station went back on the air last weekend from makeshift space. WTUL is live during the day and automated at night.
In Brattleboro, Vermont, the community group holding a construction permit for an LPFM station on 107.7 MHz has announced its intent to begin broadcasting next spring. Vermont Earth Works just kicked off a fundraising drive to raise more than $10,000 for Brattleboro Community Radio (BCR)’s basic station infrastructure needs.
Nothing new to report from from radio free brattleboro, BCR’s unlicensed cousin, which occupied 107.9 until June when a sucker-punch FCC raid took the station off the air. People involved with rfb have previously said they would vacate the airwaves when the LPFM station was ready to sign on. Perhaps radio free brattleboro’s run is through…a Pyrrhic victory if true.
