KOPN Hangs in There: A Small Community Radio Station Struggles to Survive in Mid-Missouri

    John Tarleton writes at his Cybertraveler site, “KOPN is one of the nation’s oldest listener-sponsored, community-access radio stations. In the late ’70s it flourished as the center of Mid-Missouri’s alternative universe. However, by 1997 KOPN was on the verge of financial collapse. Community activists rescued it at the last moment. Now, four years later, they are fighting an uphill battle to revive the station” (via Urbana Indymedia). Go to the link.

      I have a residential treatment center for 24 abused and neglected children. I am looking some kind generous person to help us build a small radio station for the boys. It will help them build their self esteem and self confidence, and increase their ability in english speaking. The agency is a tax exempt.

      Thank you.
