We broadcast at 92.9 FM Mondays midnight - Wednesdays noon. So many Low Power FM (LPFM) applicants applied for licensing in the 2013 application window that few to no groups applying in major urban areas ended up with a 24/7 license. There were 8 groups in Philadelphia who applied for this channel; 4 ended up with nothing at all and we are happy to have worked with our timeshare partners in the Germantown section of the city to get any time at all. We were South Philly's only applicant.

We are also making time for interviews with local residents doing interesting things in the areas of politics, community activism, business, the arts etc. In our short time thus far our most ambitious venture was interviewing as many of the numerous candidates for the 5th District PA congressional primary as we could, a process we're repeating with the dozens of candidates for Philadelphia's City Council.
