LPFM Event at the Black Cat in D.C.

Attention D.C.-area community radio enthusiasts!

D.C.'s Community Powered Radio Project is hosting a Low Power FM (LPFM) event tonight (Nov 24) at the Black Cat Backstage at 8PM. The evening will feature a screening of the award-winning documentary Pirate Radio USA, followed by a panel discussion that will allow the audience to interact with some of Washington and the nation's leading LPFM advocates.

Come on by and learn about LPFM issues and how you can support the expansion and protection of community radio. Now is a great time to get involved, as the incoming administration and new Congress may hold the keys to take community radio to the next level.
