In early August of 1995, I did an interview with Stephen Dunifer, the founder and chief engineer of Free Radio Berkeley, an unlicensed FM radio station in Berkeley, California. He was super knowledgeable about radio and how to do it right. At the time, his station had quite a following in the Bay Area, but he was clear that he didn't want to cover a larger region. This is where I first became acquainted with the concept of low power community radio. In a few years, low power FM (LPFM) would be a legal option for new broadcasters.
