>Previously in San Diego (March - June 2008):

In Spring 2008, the independent, guerilla radio project Neighborhood Public Radio will be hosting public broadcasts in San Diego and Tijuana.

As part of our inclusion in the 2008 Whitney Biennial in New York, these San Diego/Tijuana broadcasts will be aired live in local neighborhoods, and also streamed over the internet to the Whitney Museum of Art.

Working in collaboration with local community groups, artists, activists, and neighbors, NPR will support a platform to share a transgressive media practice .Neighborhood Public Radio has created several Portable Radio Instruments (PRIs) and is using them for broadcasts across the country for this Whitney Biennial event, called "AMERICAN LIFE." Multimedia artist and UCSD faculty Michael Trigilio is a co-founder of Neighborhood Public Radio and will be the principle organizer for the AMERICAN LIFE broadcasts in San Diego. To contact Michael, email npr@neighborhoodpublicradio.org

ABOUT NEIGHBORHOOD PUBLIC RADIO:

Neighborhood Public Radio is an independent, artist-run radio project committed to providing an alternative media platform for artists, activists, musicians, and community members. Our motto: If it's in the neighborhood and it makes noise .. we hope to put it on the air.

Neighborhood Public Radio has been named "Best Super Local Radio Station" by San Francisco magazine and we have been featured in Punk Planet magazine, Artforum, and the Chicago Reader. As a traveling band of guerilla broadcasters, folks from NPR have hosted thematic broadcasts far and wide, including both Artist's Television Access and Southern Exposure Gallery in San Francisco's Mission District, Chicago's Version 5 Festival, and a trip to collaborate with the neighborly media folks of kuda.org in Novi Sad, Serbia.

In 2006/07 NPR was the recipient of a Creative Work Fund Grant which was used for a collaborative series of projects collectively titled Radio Cartography. The various experimental radio projects included Monthly Broadcasts, State of Mind Stations, Talking Homes, and Alternate Soundtrack Audio Tours. Radio Cartography was done in partnership with Southern Exposure gallery. In 2008 NPR was included in the Whitney Museum's Biennial exhibition in New York City. Recently, in 2010, NPR was featured in the Project 20 exhibition at the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore.

Public radio segment fringe (UFO) religions SD

Speaking of greys -- there was an interesting segment on San Diego's public radio show These Days on fringe religions in San Diego, like heaven's gate and Unarius. Discussed the pressures that "science is putting on religion" to come up with provable tenets.
I agreed with some of it, disagreed with how some things were said, but most of all found it pretty interesting and thought provoking.
enjoy.

Sonic Weapons Used at San Diego Town Hall

A Joint Investigative Report September 11, 2009
“Long-range acoustic devices [LRADs] for crowd control can be extremely dangerous. These are used in Iraq to control insurgents. They can cause serious and lasting harm to humans…We want to know WHY our Sheriff Dept has this weapon,” Sal Magallanez of San Diego-based Liberty One Radio said in an e-mail sent to East County Magazine, prompting a joint investigation.
The device was stationed by San Diego County Sheriff deputies at a recent town hall forum hosted by Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) in Spring Valley and at a subsequent town hall with Congressman Darrell Issa (R-San Diego)
