"Are radio pirates plundering and hijacking the airwaves from their rightful state". The first book to document and emphasize the myriad voices of the free radio movement, from Black Liberation Radio in Springfield, Illinois, to Free Radio Berkeley in Berkeley, California. The first section includes contributions from Robert McChesney on the political economy of radio in North America and a history and analysis of the burgeoning pirate radio movement. The second section includes interviews with and commentary by some of the key grass roots participants in micropower broadcasting worldwide -- from Canada, Holland, Haiti and Mexico, as well as America. The final section of the book consists of a comprehensive technical guide and how-to manual for going on the air, complete with schematics and "sound" advice.
