New documentary about WCOM

Elon University students created a 15-minute documentary film about WCOM and Low Power FM stations called "103.5: A Radio Community."

The film has also been submitted into the Carrboro Film Festival, but you can watch it right here...

Check out Ruby on WCOM 103.5 LP FM

OrangePolitics.org's own Ruby Sinreich will be my guest today on WCOM's West End Report (6pm). Ruby and I will be discussing the talk of the town, primarily getting the audience updated on the Abbey Court situation.

Once again being inspired by Tom Arnel's Placeholder show's Guest DJ feature, I have also asked Ruby to bring along her favorite music to play.

If you are not in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro area, you can listen online here

We welcome calls for questions for Ruby 919-929-9601

Thanks so much...

WCOM, a Carrboro-based radio station run solely by volunteers, is trying to get the word out about its mission and get some more support from the community.

The 100-watt radio station, which broadcasts about five miles, was started in 2004. The content is all community-based with more than 60 shows on the air. The variety of programs range from the local music scene to bilingual to youth programs. And despite the little funding the station has, it broadcasts live on the web 24/7.

But Jackie Helvey, WCOM's website designer, said keeping the place running on virtually no funding or advertising has been quite a challenge. She said many people don't even know the station exists, so getting money can be tough to come by.

"We need underwriting," said Helvey. "We need people willing to donate 15 dollars a month."
