Community Radio Update

Since the notice went out about the Community Radio Meeting (see below) last night, along with some email to people I thought might be interested, I’ve received nothing but positive responses: it appears as though there are 4 or 5 groups of Islanders who have been batting this idea around for a while, and the meeting will be a good chance to get everyone around the same table.

One small point of clarification: the meeting’s being held in the CBC Board Room due to the kindness of Craig Mackie, CBC Radio Program Manager for PEI, but isn’t a meeting about the CBC, or about community radio on the CBC, nor is the meeting in any way officially connected with the CBC.

Saskatoon has had a long-running and well-respected community station and Regina just launched one. Both are less stuffy than the CBC and less obnoxious than the private stations. I think it would be a great fit in Charlottetown.

It’s all about Charlottetown. :)

Peter, I posted news on on this issue. Might get some creative teens involved.
