Open Spaces: Logan Heights
KRPB our community powered airwaves! The transmitter has been raised for Radio Pulso del Barrio, the community project for Open Spaces: Logan Heights. Led by Artist-In-Residence, Roberto Salas, Lead Artist, Misael Diaz, and local community members, Radio Pulso del Barrio is a bilingual art, culture, and education-centric radio station designed, built, and maintained by the communities of the greater Logan Heights area to connect and empower its neighborhoods by giving residents a voice.
First hitting the airwaves in spring 2014, Radio Pulso Del Barrio will transmit from 1600 AM and stream online at http://www.radiopulsodelbarrio.com. First airing during the Chicano Park Day Celebration on Saturday, April 19, the station is in the process of collecting content for its official launch. Radio Pulso has signed a two-year lease, extending its stay in the Open Spaces Bread & Salt studio. And a board and volunteer committees have formed to oversee the station and create a long-term plan for its sustainability.
