A community radio station in Ithaca turned from dream to reality this year with the arrival of Ithaca Community Radio, broadcasting way on the left of your FM dial, literally and politically.
The local station is non-profit and volunteer-run. It broadcasts Democracy Now and other progressive programming. Recently it has begun creating its own programming, featuring local efforts for peace and justice.
The dream was only realized by a lot of hard work and support. It will only succeed with lots more. This is where you and I come in.
This weekend is a good time to get involved with Ithaca Community Radio. There is a benefit concert for ICR, as well as the Finger Lakes Cleanwater Initiative, on Saturday 13 October. The concert features Rockwood Ferry, the Dorothy Cotton Jubilee Singers, and others.
The event is at 7:30 at the Unitarian Church at the corner of E. Buffalo and S. Aurora Streets. Suggested donation is $10.
You can find out more about ICR at their web site, www.ithacaradio.org, and their Facebook page.
