As we begin our efforts to bring Community Radio to southwestern New Mexico, we are greatly encouraged by the pioneering and continuing efforts of thousands that have preceded GMCR.
We’ve begun a page with background information, core documents and current articles on community media. Click here to view that info.
This page contains many resources that we have found useful and you may find interesting. We include, of course, many Community Radio stations but also include college, NPR, and other stations that present alternatives to mainstream commercial radio. There are also links to many of the organizations that support and nurture Community Radio and a range of related issues.
This is an ongoing effort and we will be adding many more resources. If you have suggestions for others we missed, please do send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with a working URL!
