I have decided to discontinue my efforts in creating a movie to help promote community radio because I have discovered community radios primary interest is in raising money not expanding their community commitment. The community station here in Kansas City KKFI was only interested in my $600 donation. They continue to solicit me for donations however they won’t give me the time of day when it comes to mentioning the film project on the air. For the most part, that is the attitude I encountered from almost all of the 340 other community radio stations across the United States.
Therefore, I have canceled all of the pledge donations to the Bum DJ project and will discontinue my efforts to promote the film. I am extremely disappointed in community radio stations and plan to never donate to stations again.
