Charlotte Community Radio Secures Broadcasting Home

It’s Official! We found a home in NoDa.

Charlotte’s historic arts and entertainment district – a neighborhood where the people are as diverse as the art, live music, craft beers, restaurants, custom gifts and tattoos you will find here. Noda.org

 

Logo: NoDa, Charlotte's Arts DistrictCharlotte Community Radio, a non-profit, community-focused, volunteer-run, non-commercial internet-based, community radio station, will move into the SEEDS training center, located on 36th Street in NoDa, on January 2, 2015. Live audio broadcasting will begin in February.

The station will act as a forum for people, issues and events that traditionally lack media access by promoting user-generated content and citizen journalism in an effort to engage the local community. Arts, cultural and music programming will be produced or hosted by local artists, performers, musicians, storytellers, DJs, and other community members who know Charlotte and the surrounding areas well. More than anything, we want to put “community” back into radio and we invite you to Join Us!

Who are we? We are volunteer steering committee members who are laying the foundation for Charlotte Community Radio and we’re chair dancing to Matuto Music right now. If you’d like to get your Appalachian-Afro-Brazilian groove on in celebration of our great news, you can find all the details surrounding Matuto’s performance on The Evening Muse event calendar.

We’re Still Here

We're Still Here SignIt’s never easy building something from scratch especially when you need the help of others to make it work, but We’re Still Here.

Two things are important for us to continue forward, securing active steering committee or board members who can help us guide this effort in the right direction. And two actively committed volunteers, one who can manage our growing list of volunteers and another who can get involved with our upcoming outreach activity.

If you’re interested in getting involved on the ground level of a non-commercial, community supported, volunteer-run, internet radio station, please Join Us! Let’ Build It Together!

Beta Testing Begins Today

Computer CablesAnd, here we go!

Charlotte Community Radio‘s beta testing begins today and we believe most of the day will be spent making sure all these cables are connected properly and that our equipment is working well with each other. The new tower is waiting on its monitor and then we’ll add that to the mix.

Keep an eye on our updates via Twitter and Facebook so you know when our first sounds hit the internet. Beta testing will continue throughout the month of April.
