Fortunately, to good old Internet Archive has bailed out my bottom many, many times with archived copies of the 'disappeared.'
While not exactly easy to navigate, the Internet Archive more than makes up for that with astounding content.
That 'not too easy to navigate' thing was probably why I only recently discovered several new archives of low power radio material, most of which are working and one that is expected to return soon.
So with that, please to be enjoying:
- Pirate Radio Files - "PDF documents related to operating a MicroPower radio station capable on free (i.e., non corporate-controlled) speech."
- Operating Your Own Low Power FM Radio Station - "PDF files about the illegal FCC hijacking of all FM radio broadcast, and what you can do in the face of it."
- The History Of Free Radio Berkeley - "Founded on April 11, 1993 as a Free Speech voice challenging the regulatory structure and power of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)."
- Micropower Radio - "The item is not available due to issues with the item's content."
And, as always, while you're there, be sure to visit the Audio Archive section where you will find over 3.5 million audio items ranging from wax cylinder and 78 rpm recordings to Old Time Radio to classic audio books to the newest independent music, podcasts and spoken word - much of which is either already in the public domain or is offered under a variety of Creative Commons licenses.
With probably one billion hours of audio content available, the Audio Archive could really help a low power broadcaster offer exciting alternative content to listeners anywhere - go there!
