A community activist group in Seattle, Brown Paper Tickets, plans to celebrate National Radio Day, Aug. 20, in style. They’ve put together a free “community party” to celebrate National Radio Day and to encourage LPFM applicants.
According to a press release from sponsor Brown Paper Tickets, the event will focus on applicants for King County’s eight potential new radio stations.
Brown Paper Tickets says that applicants from Pierce and Kitsap counties will explain how they will use the airwaves if the FCC approves their application. According to the group, the Federal Communications Commission is expected to license up to eight new radio stations for the greater Seattle area, and more than 1,000 stations nationally, from applications received during the two-week window that opens Oct. 15.
According to the group, the event also serves as a “last call” for nonprofits to apply.
The free and open-to-the-public community lunch and cake-cutting celebration will be held at Jack Straw Productions, 4261 Roosevelt Way, from noon to 1:30 p.m.
