On my first day in Arkansas during my October, 2016 visit, I wrapped up my night with a trip to new low power FM (LPFM) community radio station KPSQ-LP in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Located on the third floor of the Chancellor Hotel, the station plays a mix of local and syndicated music and talk shows, including programming from Pacifica.
Last summer, I had a fun trip to see community radio station KCHUNG in Los Angeles. The streaming and unlicensed low power AM station has deep connections with the arts community and airs a range of freeform music and talk programming. Also notable for its funky digs above a Vietnamese restaurant in Chinatown, KCHUNG has drawn a diverse collection of show hosts and solid partnerships with Los Angeles arts organizations.
