Pitchfork’s Marc Hogan:
On January 5, President Obama signed into law the Local Community Radio Act, which paves the way for hundreds of noncommercial FM stations. Maybe more.
I was lucky enough to get a chance to write about the law, the opportunities it creates, and the long battle it took to make it happen. Also: what terrestrial radio means in the age of the iPad, and how this all dovetails with ideas about “the power of local.”
