Ayer and Shirley: America's Newest Food Desert

2/7/15  Here is the text of my commentary, airing mostly on Liberty & Justice 1640, of Ayer and Shirley's new status as a food desert.

Special programming on 95.1 The Voice of the Resistance through Christmas week

12/22/14  It was the most censored video on YouTube from mid November to mid December 2014. Lenny Pozner, alleged father of Noah Pozner, filed a groundless copyright infringement complaint in an attempt to keep the public from seeing it. But they couldn't suppress it forever. And now we have it here. 95.1 FM has been reactivated to air "Let's Talk About Sandy Hook," the documentary soundtrack in its entirety, playing repeatedly though at least Sunday, December 28th. A live stream of the broadcast is also available. Regardless of your views on gun legislation, childhood mental health screening, psychotropic drugs, or the pharmaceutical giants that push them, give it a listen and decide for yourself where the truth lies.

Troubadour 1700 AM and 97.9 FM will begin airing continuous folk and instrumental Christmas music beginning Wednesday morning the 24th.We wish you a peaceful, rewarding holiday season and we look forward to 2015 where my goal will be to bring our micro transmitters to downtown areas in North Central Massachusetts, the Nashoba Valley, and possibly Metro West. Stay tuned. 

Yet another change in the audio streaming URL's

11/17/14  First, an apology to all on line listeners over the fact that the audio streams had been down for weeks before I discovered the problem. That is how busy I have been with other matters! Emails from my host that were sent a month in advance warning of a change in audio streaming servers somehow never made it to my Inbox. Here are the new URL's to bookmark in your favorite computer based player or Wifi radio:

Personally, I hate URL changes in audio streams. They outdate your streaming bookmarks so fast, that even just a year later, half of them no longer work. But this was a business decision by my host and it is beyond my control. All audio links on the websites should be updated by the time you read this. Our pages on Tune In should also be working again shortly, as well as listening over the phone through Zeno Radio. Our phone numbers for listening remain the same:

Troubadour 1700 is a service of Minimum Wage Media

Minimum Wage Media is a insurgent broadcasting effort named in honor of starving artists and the working poor - those who are prevented from reaching their full potential due to the vicious cycle of poverty and debt. We seek to expose and shame the powerful elites and status quo enforcers who exploit us, and build a culture based upon concensus, equal ecomomic opportunity, and a respect for nature, natural health, and natural law.

The micro stations of Minimum Wage Media are a project of Jeffrey Gill whose background includes, Walden 1120 (WADN), WCMX, WCAV, and WDLW.
