Great Scott! 99.3FM, WBTV-LP, the new low-power community radio station we are building with the community andRETN next year, is a finalist for the Arts Riot Super Supper on Thursday, September 10 [aka SEABA Art Hop Eve].
What is a Super Supper?
Think of it as an in person, live crowd funding event meets a TED Talk. The audience pays $10 at the door, gets free dinner, schmoozes with the presenters, and then listens to the series of 5 minute presentations where each group shares their social impact project. After eating, people vote, and the winner receives the funds from the night. Pretty rad, right?
Why is WBTV-LP a finalist?
Well, we think our vision of a new low-power community radio station – one that teaches the art of radio, puts creative projects, live broadcasts local events, and otherwise enriches the local airwaves – is exciting! Apparently the Arts Riot folks did too. We were picked from a bunch of community movers and shakers who applied. We get just 5 minutes to make our case for why this station is an important new piece of the local community media landscape. Please come hear our pitch (and all the rest of the finalists) and vote on who you like best at the end of the night.
Awesome, give me the details!
