Scene Reports: Illinois, Louisiana

Illinois: It seems that a group of folks headed out after the WRFU barnraising to pay a visit to Springfield, the home of Mbanna Kantako‘s Human Rights Radio. They found Kantako and the station in good spirits, albeit at extremely low power, thanks to a blown amplifier, which is now under repair.
Kantako celebrates his 18th nearly-uninterrupted year on the air in five days – a large portion of which has been archived on tape.
Louisiana: This IMC post collected comments which suggest Radio Algiers is back on the air following a scary visit from the FCC. Plans are still in the works for a collaboration using the facilities of WTUL; the Tulane station’s staff have set January as the target month to return to air.
