Oh, my!  I so appreciate the way folks have forwarded this Community Radio project on to their friends and other lists! We are now at 28% of our goal. Word-of-mouth is the best recommendation of all! Thank You! Please continue to tell your friends.

And here's a bit more info that folks have asked about.
__We intend to focus on local issues, news, music and cultural events (and we have a wealth of talent in our Fair Trade Town and home of the University of Oklahoma.)
__Greg Johnson at The Blue Door will do a Music & Politics hour for us, in addition to the hour he already does for NPR's KOSU in Stillwater.
__And Batch at The Peace House wants to host a talk show.
__Brenda Golden with the Mvskoke-Creek Nation will share her interviews of Indian activists and elders.
__Michael Dodson will produce our local new program, in addition to the 30 minute Radio program he currently produces for the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. Check out his coverage of the Obama visit and interview with Pipeline Inspector, Engineer & Whistleblower Kent Rowe.
__Dr. Roberto Ramirez, a Medical Doctor, with decades of radio experience wants to produce a Medical Issues program in Spanish.
__We will air programming distributed by Pacifica, such as: Democracy Now!, Free Speech Radio News, WINGS, Sprouts, Youth Radio, and others, as our listeners request.

Other local events that should get airtime and interviews are:
__The Norman Music Festival which just completed its fifth year with amazing talent including:
Hayes Carll
Portugal. The Man

Rainbows Are Free
Alejandro Escovedo
The Damn Quails

__GrooveFest -  the world's oldest Human Rights Music Festival, and
__The Medieval Fair, to name just a few. And of course, the art & cultural events at The University of Oklahoma provide a wealth of material and resources.

And Yes! We are actively seeking folks with programming, engineering or other talent and interest in Community Radio.

Please Join Us with your pledge, support and talent!
