Local Musicians Help Raise Funds for New Community Radio Station
As Media Bridges Celebrates their 20th Anniversary,
Cincinnati Prepares for a New Addition to the Local
Cincinnati, Ohio - August 21, 2009 - On September 5th, Media Bridges, Cincinnati's community media center, will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary. For the past two decades, this local nonprofit has been providing Cincinnatians with the means for making their voices heard by creating their own media. Through the provision of free equipment and free classes, Media Bridges has enabled local individuals and organizations to produce documentaries, television shows, radio productions, websites, and other types of electronic media.
The celebration will culminate in the FREE WAVE RIOT, a live concert starting at 8pm at the Know Theater in downtown Cincinnati. Featuring performances from local musicians IsWhat?, the Tigerlilies, Fourth Letter Gang, J. Dorsey Blues Revival, Losanti, the Frankl Project, and Culture Queer, proceeds from the event will help Media Bridges in their efforts to launch WVQC-FM, a low-power FM station featuring local content.

Wonderful informational talk about the current streetcar system plans this morning on Channel 12. If you are unsure about the streetcars or if you know people who aren't please take the time to watch this 18 minute video. They've done a great job accurately talking about all the most asked about issues including the current budget crisis, the actual route the streetcar will take and why, its impact in other cities, what a modern day streetcar actually is and looks like.
I really encourage everyone to show this video to as many people as you can.
Did you know that modern day streetcars can be tracked on your Blackberry or iPhone? They are equipped with GPS tracking so that you can accurately check where the next car is and how long it will be before it reaches your stop! That's freakin Awesome!
