This book documents the history of the free radio movement through essays by different people involved in the movement. Ron Sakolsky (Co-conspirator with Mbanna Kantako) and Stephen Dunifer (founder of Free Radio Berkeley), contribute articles as well as edit this collection. There are interviews with Mbanna Kantako who began Human Rights Radio in the housing projects of Springfield, Illinois, Lee Ballinger, Jon Bekken, Ricardo Omar Elizalde, Lorenzo Ervin, Charles Fairchild, Paul Griffin, Jerry Landay, and many others.
The last chapter is devoted to starting your own low-watt or micro power radio and how to deal with legal questions. In light of the recent decisions in the courts, we may be hearing more about micro powered stations in communities in the near future.
I read this book from top to bottom and think it is a valuable contribution to raising the awareness of the people to the appalling everyday reality all over the world, the manipulation, censorship, and distortion of the opinions, news, activities of the mainstream, and yet in some way giving hope through the actions of doing something constructive. Highly recommend this book for anyone interested in radio, the media, and free speech.
