on WIDE-LP on March 21, 2009
in cooperation with the
Radio Voices Without Frontiers (RVSF)
2009 one day broadcast campaign (http://rvsf.amarc.org/index.php?l=EN)
Midnight - 8 am: "The Souls of Black Folk" by W.E.B. Du Bois (from http://librivox.org/souls-of-black-folks-by-web-du-bois/), to be rebroadcast in serial form weekdays at noon starting on March 23.
At our Feb. 19 meeting we talked about progress in getting a Linux program working which might take over broadcast operations from the Windows program we are now using, Zara Radio. We also talked about scheduling a Health Writers On the Air program which Eric had edited from its WORT version for broadcast on WIDE. Then we arranged to meet at the WSUM (UW student radio station) open house on campus Feb. 20, and made plans to attend the Feb. 23 open house of the new Meadowood Neighborhood Center not far from our transmitter location in southwest Madison.
The Radio Council met Jan 22, 2009 at 8:00 at the WORT studio (after the Health Writers program concluded). The WORT studio is at 118 S. Bedford St. This is just south of the bus station which is at the corner of Bedford and West Washington.
