What is Local?
Here's a list of how we will define 'local':
Music written by local artists, performed by local artists, played in a local venue.
Music played by local artists in a local venue.
Music written by local artists, played by local artists in a non-local venue.
Music played in a local venue by non-local musicians.
Music that was influenced by a local musician.
Music that was recorded in a local studio.
Music distributed by a local label.
Music that 'sounds' like it came from Portland or belongs in Portland.
Music, that in some way, reflects local values, history or landscape.
In addition, it is our intention to play music not already well represented on the local dial.
MetroEast Community Media, in collaboration with a coalition of community groups, received word on May 6th that its application for a non-commercial educational (NCE) radio station has been approved by the Federal Communications Commission.
With its transmitter located on Mt. Hood,the signal of the new station - 91.1 on the FM dial - will reach most of the East Metro area as well as much of Portland east of the Willamette.
