A new community radio station covering South Philly has applied for an FCC license and launched a crowdfunding campaignyesterday to raise money for start-up expenses.
South Philly Community Radio, a project backed by the nonprofit Resources for Human Development’s New Beginnings incubator, is trying to raise $21,000 to pay for equipment. Find their Indiegogo fundraising site here.
Chris Randolph, managing director of the station, said it will mostly have a mix of community affairs programming. “Much of this will be in English along the lines of, say, a weekly hour for Lower Moyamensing Civic Association,” Randolph said.
