5/5 based on 1 review.

In 1997 a group of dreamers and visionaries in the border town of Bisbee, AZ, located in the Mule Mountains of the Chihuahuan desert, formed ... See more the Bisbee Radio Project, Inc. This non-profit endeavor was dedicated to bringing radio to Bisbee. Automated KBRP went on the air on November 21, 2004. Live programming began on the Winter Solstice, December 21, 2004. In December of 2005, funds were raised within the community to hoist the antenna from the low point in Brewery Gulch to the top of the Central School Project Bell Tower. This strategic placement more than doubled the number of listeners who dwell in the winding canyons of the Mule Mountains. Creating a community-run radio where there was has been a true challenge for Bisbeeites, but the dream has become a reality. Participant Members dedicate their time and talents to manage all aspects of the radio station and are learning the myriad skills involved in running a full-time radio: studio-to transmitter technology, FCC rules and regulations, digital broadcasting, library maintenance and the production of programs, software programming, web design, news gathering, fund raising, database maintenance and the daily negotiation of creating and working together in community. KBRP was glad to make the move from the Brewery Gultch location to the Central School Project in the fall of 2008. KBRP is a bustling hub of activity, creation, fun, and information. KBRP Members produce a daily community calendar, animal rescue updates, local news, music, book reviews, educational programs and interviews. Now that KBRP is a Pacifica Network Affiliate, a National Federation of Community Broadcasters Participant Member, and a member of the World Association of Radio Broadcasters, it shares programming with a world- wide network of radio stations.
