Grassroots Community Radio: an Endangered Resource

A Public Forum Featuring David Barsamian, sponsored by Save Grassroots Radio

David BarsamianDavid Barsamian
David Barsamian is the founder and director of Alternative Radio, an independent, award-winning, weekly radio program produced in Boulder, Colorado. AR presents information and perspectives that are ignored or distorted in the corporate-controlled media. The one-hour program is broadcast on more than 125 public radio stations around the world. Until recently, it was aired on KRFC fm, but they cut it with schedule changes. David will address the corporatization of community radio, which is happening locally and nationally.

Our Story

We are a group of people who care about KRFC and who believe the station is losing its way. Our group is made up of people who are or have been financial contributors, board members, volunteers, original founders, SPA committee members, and programmers.

Why Donate to Save Grassroots Radio?

We have been unsuccessful attaining our goals by merely asking the KRFC Board of Directors for mediation, so we are pursuing alternate strategies which sometimes cost money. For example Save Grassroots Radio incurred advertising costs sponsoring David Barsamian speaking in Fort Collins -- a low-key community education and outreach event. Our excellent legal counsel is donating much of his time, but does need some funds and case-related expenses.

Donations are currently doubled through a matching grant so act now! Donations are not tax deductable.
