radio free brattleboro Wins Symbolic Community Endorsement; Gilligan Goes LPFM

Voters in Brattleboro, VT went to the polls on March 2 and by a margin of nearly two to one voted to support their microradio station in its struggle for “official legitimacy.”
For what it’s worth, the local paper ended up endorsing the station, too. The court activity is still at the tentative stage, each side having filed papers asking a federal judge to shut the other up.
And yes, Bob Denver is the proud papa of WGAG-LP in Princeton, West Virginia, where he lives. The 100-watt station on 93.1 should hit the air later this year out a of a studio in Denver’s home and will play oldies and radio dramas.
