I live in NH and one day in '04 I was in a store in Brattleboro, VT
and heard jazz from a radio. It grabbed my attention and I learned that
the music was coming from their local community radio station, rfb
(Radio Free Brattleboro.) This was unlicensed and had years of a
running battle with the FCC.
I got involved with the group and in the fall I was on the air two hours a
week playing my 1920s dance music and jazz along with comedy and
nostalgia. What a wonderful experience until the FCC closed the
operation in June, '05.
I then transferred my show up the river to Bellows Falls, VT where a
group had a license and started broadcasting in June, '05. We just
celebrated our first year. We are at www.wool.fm on the internet. My
show is called "jimmiejazz" airing 1-3 PM Thursdays, Eastern. This
week I'm playing the complete Five Birmingham Babies who started
recording in July, 1924.
The internet is such an amazing thing. I've received mail from Australia,
Germany and Holland.
Some of my archived shows are at www.dgarrick.com . The site also
links to Rich Conaty's excellent programming.
