Berkeley Liberation Radio Faces Eviction - May 24th, 2005
Captain Fred tells DJ Rubble (via Indybay IMC) that the station's received notice to move out by the end of June. BLR's been at its current location (in Oakland) for more than three years. The landlord was initially supportive of the station, but there have been some complaints about blanketing interference. Normally such complaints are pretty easily rectified but BLR's neighbors happen to be band practice spaces that contain gear especially sensitive to strong RF fields. The station is looking for a 10x10' room with roof access, preferably in a commercial space, where "a somewhat raucous atmosphere" can flourish. "We'd really like to find some landlord who has a grudge against the federal government," says Fred.
