Occupy Austin Launches Revolutionary Radio Station

Since October 6th, Austin, Texas, has been home to a growing occupation of 99%-ers who are fed up with the corporate control of our government and financial system.

Now, the city that’s known around the world for its legendary live music scene will be home to another musical revolution: the first independent radio station of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Occupy Radio Austin launches tomorrow, October 15th, just in time for the global day of action that will connect new and ongoing protests in over 900 cities around the world.

Occupy Radio Austin will be a 100% volunteer operated, 100% commercial free, online streaming radio station dedicated to telling the stories and playing the music of the 99%. The 24/7 schedule will include news from the Global Revolution, stories of economic struggle from ordinary people, and music to dream by.

From the official site:

We are looking for submissions from bands, songwriters, DJs, poets, comedians, and average individuals; anyone who supports and wants to Occupy together. To send us a song, simply attach the MP3 of your song to an email and send it to: mymusicoccupies@gmail.com.

If you would like like to share your 99% story or, share with others why you support the Occupy Movement, record your message of 1-3 minutes and send it in MP3 format to: 99voices@gmail.com.

If you would like to volunteer in Austin, or remotely, we have plenty to do whether you have 30 minutes or, a whole day. To volunteer, please email: volunteer@occupyradioaustin.org.

The launch of the Occupy Wall Street movement’s first radio station comes fast on the heels of the debut of it’s Kickstarter-funded print newspaper, The Occupied Wall Street Journal, and a Loudsauce campaign to get an Occupy Wall Street commercial on cable television.

Hopefully, these demonstrations will continue to spread across the US, and continue on, to become America's "Arab Spring." Our American Autumn.

We are well past our time for renewal, to paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, "change is our right, our responsibility."

People, lets take America back from the 1%, they are trading on your future. These people are traitors to the true American way. Let us see heads roll.

The question is, since the 1% didn't respect the 99% yesterday, what efforts will be needed for us to call upon. Can we get there with non-violence, god knows the 1% doesn't respect Non-violence, not in a violent world of their own making.

"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

Hi Janelle. It's an internet radio station, not AM or FM. http://www.occupyradioaustin.org/

Links there for music and story submissions and volunteering and what not. Just launched today - much growth ahead.

Today's march and occupation at Austin city hall... so encouraging.

Or better yet try opening my icon picture. It may take a couple of clicks to open fully.

Robert B.,

I don't think we've had true capitalism in decades. The government's ability to use the central bank like we use or credit cards has given us a sort of stealth, back door socialism. That printing of money when we don't have it devalues the honest money people have and sucks the life out of the capital that capitalism needs to operate. In fact it seems they have sucked so much wealth out of it even sound business can no longer keep up with them.

You may want to look at my earlier post that tries to explain our fiat money problem.
