SINCE THE FILING of Simon Peter Groebner's story on the unlicensed local micro-broadcaster Beat Radio 97.7FM, City Pages has learned that the U.S. Attorney's office has initiated a proceeding against Beat Radio. A status conference for interested parties has been set for October 23 at 11a.m. before US District Court Magistrate Judge John Mason.
Beat Radio operator says he will comply with whatever the court decides. "We just hope they're reasonable," he says. "This just points out the power of big media and the misplaced priorities of the FCC. Ultimately, the listeners are the losers."
