WGXC/Prometheus Radio Station Barnraising

September 24, 2010 - September 26, 2010
Hudson, NY

For our 12th radio barnraising, Prometheus is joining forces with WGXC 90.7 FM! WGXC, Hands-on Radio is a community-powered media project of the transmission arts organization free103point9. What makes this barnraising like no other barnraising we’ve held before? Our partnership with WGXC will be our very first full power radio barnraising - at over 3000 watts, WGXC will reach nearly 80,000 people in two New York counties.

Joining us will be low power and full power community stations from around the country, community media makers, educators, and activists of all stripes. Workshops will cover topics including radio production and programming, technical and station organization issues, radio as a tool to organize communities, youth radio, transmission arts, and radio theater.

We’ll come together, as always, to meet old friends and new, to share ideas and experiences, and to teach and learn. While we build a radio station over the course of one electrifying weekend, we’ll also share the skills and build the networks that will strengthen the participatory media and the community radio movements. Come prepared to pick up a soldering gun, eat scrumptious local food, and celebrate the birth of WGXC - a brand-new community radio station!
