For nearly 3 years, KBLT, the legendary LA area pirate radio station operated without interference from the FCC. 40 Watts from Nowhere, A Journey into Pirate Radio is a new book by LA Times writer, Sue Carpenter, who offers readers a candid look at the mid-nineties microradio scene from the inside out. Frustrated with a lack of diverse music on the dial, Sue Carpenter, a San Francisco based law office receptionist, walked into the office of Peter FranckIn early 1995 inquiring about how she could start her own radio station. What follows is a raucous tale of her bizarre double life during the height of California's pirate-radio boom. From humble beginings in San Francisco to the Glittery nightlife of Los Angeles, Forty Watts From Nowhere tells an interesting story about a cat-and-mouse game with the FCC, but more importantly, one person's drive to create a truly independent radio station.
