Pirates Start Free Radio San Jose

Tune in this Saturday at Noon as the Community Takes Back the Public Airwaves!!!
We are here to reclaim our public airwaves! There is too much capital involved in radio broadcast these days and it is having a negative impact on the people’s consciousness. We always hear the same old songs, talking about money and fame, making our youth think that all there is to life is finding that special “someone,? when real struggles of liberation are going on everyday in our communities.

Radio Libre, meaning Free Radio, will start broadcasting on Saturday, December 17th on 101.5 FM in San Jose. Free Radio means that we broadcast without a license from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The FCC regulates the public airwaves. We say, the public airwaves belong to us, not any federal agency or corporation. Through Radio Libre we are exercising our freedom of speech.

In making your decision about which radio station to tune into, ask yourself these important questions: Why is it so expensive to run an FCC regulated radio station? Why are all the non-public radio stations bombarding the air waves with corporate commercials? Why does the Clear Channel Corporation control the majority of the music we listen to? And do we really want our children exposed to the messages being put out by corporate radio?

As you ponder these real questions facing our communities, tune in and tune local to 101.5 FM,.this Saturday at noon. “It’s Radio Libre Time!?
