Publication Type: Internal Paper
Abstract: This paper discusses the weekly English language program “Radio Free Dixie” featuring music, news, and commentary that the exiled African American revolutionaries Robert and Mabel Williams broadcasted from Havana, Cuba from 1962-1965. I probe the internationalist politics and histories that were crucial to the work of these civil rights and black liberation leaders whose armed self-defense movement based in Monroe, North Carolina impacted freedom struggles across the U.S. and around the world. It was precisely for this reason that Mabel and Robert Williams became targets of legal and extralegal U.S. terrorism. While their resulting exile in Castro’s Cuba obstructed grassroots work in African American communities, it also created further openings – notably “Radio Free Dixie” – for broadening their networks of global solidarity.

I situate “Radio Free Dixie” in the history of Cuban radio and especially Radio Rebelde, the station established by Che Guevara in 1958 to support the Cuban revolution. While the Williamses’ station, as its name implies, was aimed primarily at the U.S. South, its transmission from Havana meant that “Radio Free Dixie” was also a product of Cuban telecommunications. I investigate the ways in which “Radio Free Dixie” shaped and was shaped by the development and politics of Cuban radio, and how the Williamses’ programming – jazz, soul, rock, and protest music; Robert’s editorials; Mabel’s news reporting – challenged Cold War color lines in Cuba as well as the U.S. Finally, I consider the Williamses’ use of radio in conjunction with print media: their newsletter The Crusader, and Robert’s “bible” for black revolutionaries, the pamphlet Negroes with Guns. Delineating the significance of the Williamses’ major media projects rooted in Cuba, I argue that these collaborative ventures demand greater attention to Mabel Williams’ thought and activism. The paper concludes by exploring radio’s particular role in black internationalist movements within late capitalism.

Abstract: This paper examines the relationship between Bulgarian intellectuals and the rising new medium of the radio in the 1930s and 1940s. Bulgaria’s national radio was established 80 years ago, in 1935, with the support of engineers, amateurs and politicians. It quickly grew in coverage and popularity. How did Bulgarian cultural producers react to the radio? Did they view it as a threat to the public’s serious intellectual engagements or as an opportunity to popularize native-born cultural production? I will examine how audiences, radio producers and state interests interacted to shape the programs of the Bulgarian radio in the first decade or so of its existence.

Abstract: Community radio is both a participatory form of communication – broadcasting that represents some kind of ideological understanding about community organizing and participatory media, and in many countries, a formal sector of licensing. The difficulty for researchers interested in community radio is this distinction is not always made clear. Practical concerns regarding the legislative process, policy-making, technical considerations of frequency allocation, power restrictions and antenna height are very different – although related – to issues of community organizing and social gain. In taking the example of Britain, and examining community radio in practice among the three London stations, we can see where these regulatory issues in practice converge with more theoretical issues around community media as a form of alternative media, and practical issues around community broadcasting as a participatory media, and broader social and political issues around the right to communicate and ‘citizen’s’ access to the airwaves.

This paper presents a framework for thinking about community media in a practical and regulatory context and thought a focused examination of community radio in London, unpacks the tensions around practice and theory. The study draws heavily on field research and first person interviews.

Abstract: An increased level of attention has been paid recently to the future of digital, satellite, and Internet radio as a means for circulating information and culture irrespective of geographic boundaries and as a means of subverting the dilemma of scarcity within the limited analogue bandwidth. At the same time, terrestrial radio itself exists within the regulatory parameters of national broadcast policy. What is interesting is that while the Internet and, to a lesser extent, other digital means of delivery, address the problem of scarcity, there has been an increasing amount of grassroots pressure and regulatory progress made towards the development of low-power community radio sectors around the globe. Analogue radio remains the primary means of news and broadcast entertainment for large parts of the world and radio itself remains largely a local experience. This paper offers a comparative examination of community radio policy and practice, arguing that media policy is not neutral. It is a contested space through which conditions for creating 'citizen' access to broadcasting are wrestled with. While at the same time, community radio practice offers participatory models of media-making.

Abstract: What do these institutions have in common?: The University of San Francisco, Rice University, Vanderbilt, Trevecca Nazarene, Duquesne, Long Island University, St. Olaf College, Hobart & William Smith, University of Rochester, Barry University, Bard College, Augustana College, Johns Hopkins, Wesleyan University, Lehigh Carbon Community College.

These are just a few institutions that have decided in recent years that either owning or directly operating a radio station was no longer in their financial interests. The FCC licenses were either sold off entirely, or leased to non-student entities.

The rise of internet-based content distribution has marginalized college radio's traditional audience reach; the idea that college radio is the only place to hear new and exciting content, is dead and gone. The "Great Recession" has badly hurt many colleges' budgets and endowments; colleges are facing tough decisions at the level of laying off entire departments.

These two factors mean "flying under the radar" is no longer an option. Your license is too valuable not to be noticed. And you aren't going to find out the administration's thinking of selling the station until it's too late and the deal is already done.

So what can a college radio station do to hang on to its license? I'll talk about four concrete concepts to reinvent your station to take advantage of the changing metrics of success for many campuses: be relevant, be visible, be integrated, and be fiscally self-sufficient. Specific examples will be given and we'll brainstorm on how implement them at your individual stations. Uncomfortable truths shall be confronted! Sacred cows shall be slaughtered! No stone shall be left unturned in giving you the tools to keep your station on the air and under your control!
