The Final Straw Radio began as a radio show streaming on AshevilleFM’s online radio station in 2010, before AFM got it’s LPFM license in 2015. A few years in, friends broadcasting KXCF and eventually KWTF in California began broadcasting our show as we were following standards for FCC & IRS standards for a non-profit radio station already on our stream (in preparation for our eventual Asheville broadcast). Currently, we’re being aired on KOWA-LP, WCRS, KWTF, KWRK-LP & WSFM (AFM!).
At a time when the conservative, religious right has been dominating the free-to-consumer media, such as talk radio and Fox, and expanding their networks of influence and distribution, we hope to present counter-information and present free media from an anti-capitalist, anti-authoritarian, feminist, anti-racist, eco-defense and generally anti-oppressive perspective. We hope that this media, our radio show, can contribute to the sharing voices engaged in the thinking and struggles on the ground to build solidarity and spread the anarchistic position
So, here’s the deal:
We have on offer a weekly, free, 59 minute radio show that is clean for broadcast. We provide timely, in depth information from a radical perspective and have been since 2010. To get those radio-ready editions of the show, just subscribe to this rss feed and pay attention to the naming convention (use the files that are 59 minutes and start with afm-final-straw). This is important because we frequently make podcast versions that are longer and do not cut out profanity.
If your radio station chooses to air our show, that’s great! Just send us an email at TheFinalStrawRadio (at) Riseup (dot) Net. This information is great for us, as we put a lot of work on the show and want to spread the content, solidarity and resistance around. If you inform us that you’ll be airing the show, we can be in touch to inform you as changes occur.
