Well, at our little station it is first come, first served. I have seen no
and there is nothing wrong in being zealous of one's time slot. That helps
foster responsibility. I have seen no elbowing out of "interlopers."
I understand that you have had some bad experiences but those shouldn't
on the subject of community radio itself. I've worked at two stations now
my complaint has been the same one--old and malfunctioning equipment. But it
is all donated and that has to be expected.
But the people have been supportive and helpful.
Perhaps you might question your approach and attitude.

true of overnight freeform,where you have a revolving group of people,who
have thier own night,and refuse to give it up.Have I tried to volunteer ?
Yes. Am I bitter about it ? YOU BET I AM !!!
