Produced by Tom Roe.

Weekly look at radio news, radio art, media news, open calls for transmission artists, and more. This week's focus is on the Federal Communications Commission's announcement of new rules for low-power and translator stations, and other FCC business relating to broadband spectrum. There will also be features about the pirate radio, or "microradio," stations of the 1990s that led to low-power radio legalization. New radio art from Brooklyn rock band Dichoics will be featured, and The New York Times listens for silence. Tune in for radio news around the clock at http://newsroom.free103point9.org
