United StatesKKFI 90.1 FM and Friends of Community Media in Kansas City, Missouri are proud to announce the 15th annual Grassroots Radio Conference (GRC) to take place on August 18-21, 2011. The Grassroots Radio Conference is coming to Kansas City August 18-21. The four-day event takes place at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church, 4501 Walnut, Kansas City, Missouri. For community radio people this is as exciting as it gets.
The GRC is a national conference which offers a chance for people from volunteer-powered, community radio stations to connect with each other, learn new skills, discuss issues, and party. This conference is for everyone interested in community radio and independent media.
The Grassroots Radio Coalition was born in 1996, as a response to increasing commercialization of public radio and lack of support for volunteer-based stations. It is an informal coalition that hosts a national conference in different places each year, and maintains an email listserve for ongoing networking. In the past 16 years different community radio stations have hosted the conference, and brought their own special flavor to it. This is the first time it is being hosted in Kansas City, Missouri. Friends of Community Media and KKFI 90.1 FM are honored to be the host this year.
