The day ahead on 90.7-FM

Midnight to 5:59 a.m.: Free103point9 Transmission Arts overnight

12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: Low-Power FM From "Free Speech Radio news": "In the midst of increasing consolidation of big media, there’s a new chance for local communities to bring their voices to the air. This October, the Federal Communications Commission will begin accepting applications from around the country for local non-profits, schools, unions, First Nation tribes, religious groups and public safety organizations to own and operate their own low-powered radio stations. Media justice advocates say this unprecedented expansion of community radio will be a major step in addressing the consolidation of media and the lack of diversity in station ownership, and could give local artists and activists a place on the dial. In Washington, D.C., FSRN’s Alice Ollstein reports."
