Pete Tridish talks with Elizabeth Press at the Grassroots Radio Conference
This past weekend Grand Street Community Arts in Albany hosted the 2017 Grassroots Radio Conference, an annual gathering of low power FM stations like WOOC, scattered throughout the country. It was an opportunity to network, learn, and to expand community empowerment. Our correspondent Elizabeth Press interviewed two people about low power FM. First up is Pete Tridish, a radio engineer who had a hand in building stations across the country, including WOOC. Pete was also involved in shaping the regulations and legislation that expanded opportunity for community radio to occupy vacant frequencies in urban areas. Elizabeth started with asking what is the importance of bringing LPFM stations to different communities.
