DJ Sacramento & DJ Llu took to the WBTV-LP studio this week to launch their new show, the Mix Tape – a collection of songs with a theme, peppered with commentary and witty banter. We are doing live to tape till our online stream kicks on!

You have all been so patient through this long station-building process. We are so stoked to soft launch the station this month with a handful of our first shows which will be a way for us to test the station out, train new programmers, and start streaming online for listeners.
Check out the new FIRST schedule that starts Sunday, December 4 and will be live to tape (for rebroadcast as we get programming filled up). The actual live stream of live shows is coming very, very soon! Stay locked to our social media and this website for the live streaming link (coming very soon).
So we can give you some amazing radio to listen to as we (finally) launch the station online in December. Can you help?
We need to raise a total of $500, starting today, to fund streaming for the first year.
Getting us online means at WBTV-LP, Burlington will be able to:
Just 50 supporters renewing (or starting) their annual WBTV-LP membership today at $9.93 (or more) will get us online!
Thank you for supporting community radio in Burlington on #GivingTuesday and throughout the month of December.
The final piece of our studio build was installed yesterday–the counter. It is new, it is shiny, it is custom made to ensure the studio is accessible, comfortable, and fits all the gear radio makers will need to broadcast!
We finish our first round of programmer training (yup, we have had 25+ folks getting trained up on station basics, the art of radio, and next, the studio tech). We will have these folks be our first “beta” schedule as we stream online later this fall.
Hot on the heels of getting online, we will raise a broadcast tower and pump out 100 watts of broadcast quality content to all of Burlington (and then some).
Can I still become a programmer?
Yup! We are always taking new apps, but you will have to wait till our next round of new programmer training (likely early in 2017) before you can join our first crew of programmers.
What can make this move faster?
I still have questions…
