BBC Friday 6 September – “B.I. FM Station” Business Strategy Roundtable

A rare opportunity for Bainbridge Island to have its own community radio station: BBC Regular ANNETTE WALKER will lead a roundtable discussion on this exciting proposition!

Sustainable Bainbridge is working with the community to develop a proposal for a low-power FM radio license from the FCC. Being low-power, coverage will be to Bainbridge Island only. The station would be for community radio, also broadcasting in emergency situations such as a power outages, weather emergencies, volcano explosions, tsunamis, zombie outbreaks or other disasters.

A wide range of programming of general and specific community interest is being sought. The radio signal could be accompanied by streaming on-demand listening.

Barry Peters is pulling the project together, and BBC Regular Annette Walker ( has been working with Barry and other volunteers to spread the word and contribute to making a great application to the FCC. Application is due October 15th. A public meeting will be September 17, 7:00-8:30 PM, at Waterfront Park Community Center.

Sincerely,The BBC Management, KaveDragen Ink, and Other Entrepreneurial Sentients From Planet BBC
