  1. I sent a letter for the KUSF public file complaining about the end of local programming on 90.3, which is now just a satellite station for a programming group hundreds of miles away.

    In the absence of better advice from a media attorney, I think this is a good angle of protest to pursue with the FCC. Radio is supposed to provide local content. The public, not USF, owns the frequency. USF can sell its broadcast rights, but should be required to allow local groups a chance to buy it and reinstate local programming.

    Keep it Independent!

  3. As someone who works as a courior, driving mainly in San Francisco, KUSF is the main station I litsen to for music. They play the music you will never hear on corparate or mainstream radio networks. The networks will only play to their tired, and over played formats and playlists. There is so much new and different music that I’ve been exposed to over the years on KUSF that I would never have gotten to hear on the networks. The other college radio stations in the Bay Area for the most part have signals that are too week to be heard clearly in San Francisco. Lastly, I think I can speak for everyone who listens to KUSF on the road… “Listening online is not an option.”

      You are sending these comments to the FCC file, right? Posting them on this page doesn’t get it to the FCC. Just making sure.

      How about a sample letter with some talking points for the less eloquent among us? Making it easier for people to send something off will mean more responses headed to the file.
