Microradio and Democracy: (Low) Power to the People (Seven Stories' Open Media Pamphlet Series)by Greg Ruggiero
Synopses & Reviews
The authors analyze the national micropower radio movement, its history, and survival strategies.
Microradio and Democracy discusses the role of citizen access to communications in a democratic society, and how diversity, localism, and core political speech are undermined by corporate control of the public airwaves. Ruggiero examines the emergence of microradio activism in recent court cases, and the links between the microradio struggle and larger movements for democracy and social justice. Illustrated with photos and graphics, this book will be of interest to anyone concerned about keeping free speech for communities, not corporations.
