This all started several months ago when the FCC awarded a solid group of local citizens the right to use a particular bandwidth. I’ll have to report the FM frequency later. But here’s the really good news: For now KQBM is already broadcasting over the internet!
And a whole bunch of us are thrilled to watch this wave rise! Who knows what a new voice for the Mother Lode will have to say in our Sierra Foothill communities? This much I know, it’s going to be a welcome alternative and a chance to experience new musical genres and new ideas. Maybe we’ll even get a little bit of storytelling on KQBM?
I sure hope so!
