Implementing a guaranteed Basic Income ("Social Security for All") would end poverty in the United States and provide a 21st-century social safety net to deal with looming widespread unemployment
caused by advancing technology and trade policies that benefit only the top 1/10th of 1 percent. Income inequality in the United States has risen sharply in recent years and continues to get worse. Without serious intervention, we WILL face massive increases in poverty and civil unrest in the years ahead....READ MORE

Prospects for buying a local, licensed radio station

9/23/15  During the spring months of 2015, I embarked upon a scheme to bring my hobby radio stations, Troubadour 1710 and Liberty & Justice 1640, to downtown areas of North Central Massachusetts and the Nashoba Valley through a network of micro AM transmitters. It quickly became evident, however, that this objective would require way too much work and persistence, with insignificant gains in visibility, listenership, and financial support. It was also a potential technical nightmare, keeping all transmitters on air on all sites in remote locations that I would have no control over and no way to monitor. Furthermore, paying a monthly rent to use a transmitter site was totally out of the question because I have, at the current time, absolutely no money. My living expenses have also gotten worse over the past few months, thanks mostly to the real estate industry, whose pathological greed knows no end... READ MORE

Troubadour frequency change to 1710 kHz pending

8/3/15  Sometime over the next several days, I will be experimenting with what will likely be a change in frequency for Troubadour from 1700 kHz to 1710 kHz. I now have the information I need from the transmitter manufacturer to move to that frequency. The new interference from WRCR is too great to tolerate indefinitely, so something has to be done. If all works well technically and the change is made, the station's branding and web address will remain "1700," although that may be a little confusing for people locally.

All AM radios designed and manufactured since the late 1980's should be able to tune 1710, along with the official expanded band which ends at 1700. Most antique radios built from the early 1930's to the early 1940's should also be able to tune the frequency if they are fully restored and aligned properly.

Currently, the only licensed stations operating at 1710 kHz are a network of 10 watt travelers information stations serving Hudson County, New Jersey. The FCC does not grant operation to any licensed facility on 1710, and those New Jersey TIS stations are there only through a rare waiver. For this reason, Part 15 broadcasters have been trying to get 1710 kHz recognized, either officially or unofficially, as a safe haven for Part 15 radio.

The prospects for full range reception on 1710 kHz should be even better than they were on 1700 before the appearance of WRCR.

Yet another URL change for the audio streams

8/3/15  Unfortunately, I have to announce another URL change for the audio streams of Troubadour 1700 and Liberty & Justice 1640.

Troubadour 1700's stream is now the following:

Liberty & Justice 1640's stream is now as follows:

Please update any native device apps or media player bookmarks. Zeno Radio's listen over phone service has already been updated and the Tune In app for portable devices should be updated by the time you read this.

Again, I have absolutely no control over these changes and they are even more disruptive and time wasting for me than they are for listeners.

The streaming is a donated service for which I am grateful. I have no choice but to tolerate it because such an arrangement is all I can afford.

Liberty & Justice 1640 is a service of Minimum Wage Media

Minimum Wage Media is a insurgent broadcasting effort named in honor of starving artists and the working poor - those who are prevented from reaching their full potential due to the vicious cycle of poverty, debt and overwork. We seek to expose and shame the powerful elites and status quo enforcers who exploit us, and build a culture based upon consensus, peace, respect, equal economic opportunity (with the eventual elimination of money altogether), and a reverence for nature, natural law, and natural health.

The micro stations of Minimum Wage Media are a project of Jeffrey Gill whose radio background includes folkimage.com, Walden 1120 (WADN), WCMX, WCAV, and WDLW.
