Welcome Mutual Radio News
4/20/15 Today Minimum Wage Media welcomes Mutual Radio News to our airwaves on their maiden voyage. Obviously, founder Leo Ashcraft was inspired by 20th Century memories of the old Mutual Broadcasting System and their cooperative structure with affiliates. Troubadour 1700 will be carrying either the 1 minute or 3 minute newscasts during most hours and Liberty & Justice 1640 will air the 5 minute newscast during many hours of the day. CBC News will continue to be heard at various times each day on both stations, so we will still be hearing the Canadian perspective on current headlines.

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, debt, and overwork. We seek to expose and shame the powerful elites and status quo enforcers who exploit us and build a culture based upon concensus, peace, respect, equal ecomomic opportunity (with the eventual elimination of money altogether), and a reverence for nature, natural law, and natural health.
The micro stations of Minimum Wage Media are a project of Jeffrey Gill whose radio background includes folkimage.com, Walden 1120 (WADN), WCMX, WCAV, and WDLW.
