In April, I visited another soon-to-be low power FM (LPFM) community radio station: CHIRP Radio in Chicago. Already a long-time streaming radio station, CHIRP's staff and volunteers were instrumental in the grassroots movement for the Local Community Radio Act, so it's particularly gratifying that they are benefiting from their efforts.
With an active volunteer staff, CHIRP is already a respected voice in the Chicago music community in particular. See my full report on Radio Survivor.
