Rex here, with a quick update.
In our excitement over what we're working to build, and the heartwarmingly positive response we received after the initial launch, we hoped to be able to somehow violate the laws of space and time in a way that would move the next phase of our launch forward WAY ahead of schedule. We aren't quite there yet, but we're getting closer. Also we have some REALLY interesting news:
1) Okay, so we can't tell you the first piece of news quite yet, just in case something falls through. Trust us, it's a MAJOR EVENT, and it's taking everything we have to keep our mouths shut.
2) Radio Free Jackson is the newest affiliate station of the Pacifica Radio Network! Pacifica is the oldest public radio network in the country and the world's oldest listener-funded radio network. RFJ now has access to incredible programming produced at community radio stations across the country, and we're also able to delve into the Pacifica Radio Archives, the oldest public radio archive in the country, with over FIVE DECADES worth of interviews and other content. Some content (both network and local, for that matter) may be political or otherwise opinion-based in nature, so to be clear: "The views and opinions expressed by any one at any time through the facilities of Radio Free Jackson, including social media channels and our website, are not necessarily the views and opinions of management, hosts, volunteers, advertisers, or other financial contributors to the station." Also, while we are proud to be able to bring you content from around the country, remember that several local programs are in development.
What's next, I hear you asking? Throughout the month of January, we'll be adding programs to the schedule and continuing to prepare for Phase Two. Sometimes we'll let you know what's we're going to air, and other times we'll simply surprise you. Keep checking the app!
Thanks, as always, for your interest in and support of Radio Free Jackson!
Radio Free Jackson is currently in "Soft Launch Mode" - we're aiming to expand our lineup on Sunday, May 31st! Be on the lookout here, and on our Facebook page.
