We are pleased to announce the availability of LPFM: The People's Voice here on our website.
This inspiring 14-minute video documentary tells the dramatic story of the grassroots movement for non-commercial Low-Power FM radio service, which provides oft-times marginalized groups in our society an opportunity to be heard.
Narrated by Emmy award winning actor Peter Coyote, LPFM: The People's Voice looks at the communities and churches embracing the low-power FM movement, even as many of the heavy hitters of the broadcast industry try to shut it down.
LPFM: The People's Voice features community representatives of Yellow Springs, Ohio, who are planning an LPFM station, plus comments by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Rep. David Bonior (D-Mich.), former FCC chairman William Kennard, and Wade Henderson from the Leadership Council for Civil Rights, among others.
Produced by the United Church of Christ's communication office, LPFM The People's Voice is a story to share. It is an instructive tool that current LPFM applicants can use, as well as groups planning to apply in the last two filing windows in the months two come.
It is your story as well, and affirms the response by your communities, churches and other civil sectors throughout this country who have spent hours and resources planning LPFM stations.
Additional copies of the video can be purchased for $19.95 each, plus $3.50 shipping and handling, by calling United Church of Christ Resources toll free at 800/537.3394. Ask for item number PICLPFM.
