"Community Radio is coming to Buffalo, (archived link, site gone) for those who demand that their radio serve as a collective forum where locally relevant ideas, opinions, news, and music are broadcast to the community, the actual options on our radio dial are few and far in between.
The important thing is to open up an independent, non-profit, community-controlled signal so that a forum can be created for the exchange of ideas, music, and information relevant to our city. Thanks to everyone who came down to the fundraiser and a special thank you to the bands/DJs who were so kind to donate their services."
