12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: Groups Says There Could be 21 New Albany Area LPFM Stations Philadelphia-based radio access advocacy group Prometheus Radio Project says there might be 21 new low-power FM radio frequencies available in the Albany-Schenectady-Troy market. There's an October deadline for non-profit organizations to apply for low-power FM licenses that can cover entire towns. "Not all channels are usable in real-world conditions, and not all channels are in locations with actual demand for community radio," the group says. "These numbers are not gospel -- they are informed guesses made by the Prometheus technical team using FCC tools." In New York statewide, here are some possibilities: Rochester, up to 32 new stations; Catskill, one; Hudson, two, Kingston, four; Saugerties, three. See more information at Prometheus Radio Project.
