Radio that reflects community

free103point9 Transmission Artist Anna Friz led the next panel at "Radio Without Boundaries, "Radio that reflects community." Since free103point9 is in the process of launching WGXC, a community radio station for Greene and Columbia counties in New York, this panel is of particular interest here. Victoria Fenner, Marian van der Zon, and Kevin Matthews were also on the panel. The panel, though, just trotted out tried and true-isms. Yes, it is important to build community for a community radio station. That seems part of the term "community radio station." Sure, some community radio stations forget that mission. Only Matthews made the good point that these community radio stations need to become multi-media groups that provide not just audio, but video, blogging, photography, and other media. Otherwise, this panel was preaching to the converted. Yes, a very dissapointing panel, that shed little new light on community radio.
