Radio Station Field Trip 83 - ARTxFM in Louisville

I'd been looking forward to visiting Louisville, Kentucky for a long time and one of the big reasons was because I wanted to check out the streaming community radio station ARTxFM. I first met its founder, Sharon Scott, several years ago when she was working to fight the shut-down and sale of her alma mater college radio station at Vanderbilt University (WRVU-FM) and we've become close friends.

Enthusiastic about starting up a community radio station, Scott worked to found ARTxFM and then led the station through the application process for a new low power FM (LPFM) license. With a construction permit in hand, ARTxFM will be on the terrestrial airwaves within a year.
