I started broadcasting as a radio pirate on a 20 watt, West Philadelphia station at 91.3FM which was called Radio Mutiny. My show featured safer sex and harm reduction information mixed with music of all genres. The station became a target of FCC scrutiny quickly, as the FCC triangulated our station we joined the movement of stations popping up across the United States. We decided as a group to engage the FCC in a dialogue which culminated in my addressing the FCC in a public debate that pitted the Enforcement arm of the FCC against the pirate movement which became known as Low Power FM radio (LPFM). In order to keep the FCC from dragging me out of the studio to jail, I did my show naked, daring the FCC to shut us down our small but feisty station. The LPFM movement suceeded in legalizing a new radio service for the USA. Prometheus Radio Project was born to help community groups and non-profit organizations take to the air legally without fear of sanctions by the FCC. I am proud to have served as a conduit between the people and the government. www.prometheusradio.org, www.wpeb881.org
