Tonight, the Rock County Progressives present an educational forum titled ‘Why Community Radio Matters… WADR-LP comes to Janesville,’ with Yuri Rashkin and Judith Detert-Moriarty. They’ll speak about launching WADR-LP, scheduled to begin broadcasting at 103.5 FM in mid-June, and how community radio promotes a wider range of voices not heard in ‘mainstream’ media. Doors open at 6pm, speakers begin at 6:30pm, and the public is invited. This is at Basics Food Cooperative, 1711 Lodge Drive in Janesville. This is an independent event not affiliated with Basics.
