Subject: [Stubblefield] Alaskan adventure with Fairbanks Open Radio

This was passed on to us at Prometheus Radio Project by a soon to be new
Community Radio Station in Fairbanks, Alaska. They are looking for an
intern or radio enthusiast who would be interested in helping to build their
station both technically and communally. They can offer room and board,
some spending money, but mostly a great Alaskan adventure in a great
community. Fairbanks Open Radio is a small group of people who have come
together to establish a progressive community radio station in Fairbanks,
Alaska. They have written the following announcement and hopefully you can
share it with anyone you think might be interested.

Help Wanted: Person interested in bringing a radio station into the world.

We are Fairbanks Open Radio -- an FM non-commercial educational community
radio station (soon to be), located in Fairbanks, Alaska.

For two years now our board has been working towards creating a progressive
radio station. We have made great strides and our parent organization, the
Alaska Federation for Community Self Reliance is actually very close to
being being granted a license by the FCC [probably within six months]. Our
board has jumped through most of the bureaucratic hoops and after a lot of
work, we expect to score highest out of nine applicants in the FCC's point
system ranking. So the groundwork has been laid and we will have two years
from the date we are issued the license to bring the station on the air.

All current members of our board are working at their jobs too much to be
able to devote the necessary time and energy needed to really get the ball
rolling. We believe there is enough community support to make this nearly
all volunteer station work. There are many people who have contributed and
will contribute to the effort but we need a person with energy, drive,
stamina, and focus, to coordinate their efforts.

Fairbanks Open Radio is looking for a person with energy, organizational
skills and a commitment to citizen media. This is an opportunity push back
against the overly loud voices of AM talk radio that have inundated our
communities. .

This will be an adventure, an opportunity to build a progressive station
from the ground up. Fairbanks Open Radio can't offer much money, but we can
provide a place to stay, money for food and transportation. This job would
not be for the money. A better world yes, making a difference yes. Amazing
adventure yes. Radio experience would be helpful but not necessary.

"Radio is one sided when it should be two. It is purely an apparatus for
distribution, for mere sharing out. So here is a positive suggestion: change
this apparatus over from distribution to communication. The radio would be
the finest possible communication apparatus in public life, a vast network
of pipes. That is to say, it would be if it knew how to receive as well as
transmit, how to let the listener speak as well as hear, how to bring
someone into a relationship instead of isolating them." Bertolt Brecht
