Product Details


“Microradio & Democracy is a superb analysis of how the media giants and the government have worked together to cripple freedom of speech on the airways by banning small radio stations. It is also an exhilarating account of how the small broadcasters and their supporters are fighting back.” –Howard Zinn

“This study provides an illuminating analysis of a crucial component of the ongoing state-corporate assault on meaningful democracy: the effort to control and shape attitudes and beliefs to induce passive acceptance of the dictates of private power.” –Noam Chomsky

“Microradio is here, and it can no longer be repressed. Greg Ruggiero has done a mighty service by explaining the issues of microradio broadcasting and outlining the crucial struggle that is taking place at this very moment in Washington, D.C. Microradio is not “the answer” to all our media problems, but it can be an important first step in the process of making our media accountable to Main Street, rather than to Wall Street and Madison Avenue. Read this pamphlet, share it with your friends, and get active. If popular support for noncommercial, community-based microradio emerges, this is a fight we can and will win.” –Robert. W. McChesney
