Jim Hightower Records Promo for Us

Thanks to Jim Hightower for recording CityWIDE Radio's first celebrity promo. You can hear his 2 min. commentary every weekday on WIDE-LP between 4:15 and 4:30 pm, and now from time to time his voice can be heard promoting our station as well as his daily "little pops of populism."

Radio Council to Meet at Transmitter Wed. Dec. 7

If you read about WIDE-LP in the Nov. 18 Isthmus cover story and were wondering "how can I get involved", here is your chance. CityWIDE Radio has an advisory Radio Council to provide citizen input on our programming and to help with community outreach. The Council's first meeting in some time is coming up next week. It will be at 7 pm at 5610 Hammersley Road, which is the home of the Program Director, Bob Park. It is also the location of the garage where our transmitter is currently located, so you will have a chance to see what hardware it takes to run a low power station.
