More on Zumix Radio

According to the the Boston Globe Zumix Radio will have it's official launch on May 5th, the 15th anniversary of Zumix:
Next month, when the community arts group ZUMIX celebrates its 15th anniversary, one facet of its mission will be heard throughout East Boston, where it is based, and maybe even beyond. May 5 will mark the official launch of ZUMIX radio, a low-power station broadcasting at 1650 AM and via online stream at www.zumix.org/radio. (The celebration, which is open to the public, begins at 5 p.m. at the ZUMIX headquarters, 202 Maverick St., E. Boston. For more information, call 617-568-9777.)

The tiny ZUMIX station, which has been broadcasting for three weeks now, aims to reflect its home base. In terms of what's on air, it swings wildly in its programming, from three hours of jazz (11 a.m.-2 p.m.) to at least three hours of youth issues programming most weekdays, with specialties like the disco oriented ''On the Beat" (Thursdays and Sundays, 6-7 p.m.) or the Latino rock ''Zubterraneo" (weeknights, 9-10 p.m.) filling out the rest of the schedule. But the station, which operates as a noncommercial station under Part 15 of the FCC regulations, really fulfills its mission behind the microphones, where teenagers from East Boston and beyond are trained in every aspect of broadcasting, from producing their own shows to presenting themselves on air. . .
