The Downstate Illinois Radiowatch has

  • The Downstate Illinois Radiowatch has a listing of the LPFM applications made in the state of Illinois. Note how many applications are filed by churches or other religious groups. I count 38 out of 83 total applications, which makes for 46%. Also note that all of these applications are for Christian groups–no other religion is represented.
    Since there are already so many Christian stations on the dial, I hope that the FCC would take this into account when parceling out the new licenses, especially due to the fact that in many cases there are 3-5 applicants for a single frequency (like 99.7 FM in Urbana-Champaign, IL). It should be abundantly clear that there is a real lack of true public-access community radio stations, not for another cookie-cutter praise Jesus station.
