The Boston Phoenix features a an overview of some low-power stations, licensed and unlicensed, that have operated in New England over the last ten years or so, including Radio Free Brattleboro and the recently departed Allston-Brighton Free Radio.
Radio Zapote is a pirate radio station broadcasting out of ENAH, the School of Anthropology and History. This station started when the Zapatista Caravan came into Mexico City to confront Presidente Fox and the Mexican civil society about the situation in Chiapas. Well, where did the thousands of Zapatistas and companeros stay when they got to Mexico City? At ENAH! So students and community members started Radio Zapote in solidarity with them. After the caravan left, they thought to themselves, “Hey, let’s keep this station going!” And so, they’ve been broadcasting for over 3 years now inside the school, on 94.1fm and the internet.
Unfortunately the station is facing eviction from the university administration.
