FCC GRANTS LPFM RADIO STATION PERMIT TO ANZA NON-PROFIT

ANZA, CA – On April 29, 2014, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted the rural community of Anza, California an historic opportunity to have its own community radio station.   The local nonprofit, Anza Civic Improvement League (ACIL) was issued a permit to build a low-power FM (LPFM) radio station following a, once in a generation, FCC application process. The permit grants 18 months to set up the equipment and studio necessary to be “on the air” broadcasting to those within approximately 10-mile of the tower location just north of the Anza Village. The studio will be located in the Anza Village and open to the public.

As a community based, noncommercial radio station, the programming will focus on education, entertainment, and issues important to the local community, including emergency broadcasting. However, the exact nature of the radio programs will depend on the creative genius of those in the community who volunteer to produce them.  The steering committee invites any individual or community organization interested in local radio broadcasting to get in on the ground level of this historic and exciting new community resource.

This the first time in 13 years and likely the last time ever that the FCC will issue new LPFM permits.  Plans to apply to the FCC for this permit began in July of 2013. Members of the Mountain Communities of Resilience (M-COR), the ACIL and other local residents met for four months to prepare the submission for the short nationwide FCC application window last winter.  The ACIL agreed to be the qualified non-profit organization to own the license but a new nonprofit, Anza Community Broadcasting, will be formed to handle fundraising and station management.  Licensing information is publicly available online at http://bit.ly/1itugxv

KOYT 97.1 FM Anza Community Broadcasting

TUNE IN >> TONIGHT @9P ON KOYT 97.1fm!!Our featured artist this evening was one of the true pioneers of jazz and an accomplished musician. Born in New York City, Cecil Taylor grew up in the small town of Corona and started taking piano lessons at the age of six. Influenced by the likes of Duke Ellington and Dave Brubeck, Taylor studied at both the New York College of Music and the New England Conservatory as a music major. While in college, Taylor became fascinated with European art music and was inspired by the music of Bartok and Stockhausen. After moving back to New York City in 1955, Taylor formed The Cecil Taylor Quarter and released their first album Jazz Advance the following year. Known for his unique style of playing, Taylor often used the piano similar to a percussion instrument and British photographer Val Wilmer coined the phrase “eighty-eight tuned drums” to explain Taylor’s technique. Taylor and his quartet would play music together throughout the ‘60s until he decided to perform as a solo artist. In the early 1990s, Taylor would form the Feel Trio with William Parker on bass and Tony Oxley on drums. The trio relied heavily on free improvisation rather than traditional jazz. Taylor went on to win countless awards throughout his career and continued to play music until his death this past April.

What compositions from Mr. Taylor might we play tonight? You'll have to tune in at 9 pm central to WRFN, 107.1 fm (103.7 citywide) or online at radiofreenashville.org!
