indigo girls, lawmakers push for low-power fm radio


june 8, 2000
web posted at: 6:33 p.m. edt (2233 gmt)


washington (ap) -- in a setting more like mtv unplugged than a capitol hill
news conference, the folk duo indigo girls used their music to encourage
lawmakers to allow more fm radio stations.


earlier this year, the federal communications commission ordered the
creation of hundreds of low-power mini-radio stations to give local
community groups, churches and schools more access to the airwaves.


but the house has passed legislation that would scale back the fcc's
action. and a bill pending in the senate, sponsored by sen. judd gregg,
r-new hamshire, would reverse the fcc's decision.


the indigo girls, who appeared thursday with sens. john mccain, r-arizona;
bob kerrey, d-nebraska; paul wellstone, d-minnesota, and others at a news
conference, said the low-power stations would inject diversity into
monochromatic airwaves.


a musical performance
amy ray said when the indigo girls started out in 1985, radio was full of
independent voices and myriad musical choices.


"now, we don't enjoy that much commercial support at all," she said. "it's
really because the way radio is set up now, if you're in, you're in, and if
you're out, you're out."


"we fight the big guys wherever we can," said fellow indigo girl emily
saliers.


fitting the low-power theme, they played two songs with an acoustic banjo
and mandolin: "get out the map," and "ozilline." dozens of mostly young
female congressional staffers whooped in delight.


the national association of broadcasters opposes the low-power stations,
saying they would add unacceptable interference on already overcrowded
radio bands.


lawmakers at thursday's event called the broadcasters' argument a
transparent attempt to stifle any new choices.

[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo

today (friday), the san jose mercury news had not one, but two, photos
of the girls! one was of their recent pro-fm appearance in congress,
along with a brief story. the other was an ad for the fat fry in aptos.
just thought i would share.


a similar story is on their website at:
