From Stella Beratlis: As an erstwhile deejay at community radio station KDVS in Davis, I know how important it is for communities to have independently-run media for public affairs, news, and music. From the standpoints of intellectual freedom and community engagement, community radio is essential: it's a democratic form of media; it allows us to hear music and programs we would never otherwise have a chance to enjoy; and when it's done right, it engages the imagination. I'm excited to help the Modesto Peace/Life Center's new radio project find a group of supporters and potential volunteers.
