KBFR Mission and Policies


Our Mission:

Boulder Free Radio is an act of civil disobedience aimed at taking back the public resource called Radio. It is an action and a protest against the selling off of the limited public resource of radio spectrum to the highest bidder. It is an action designed to support our community with a democratic media that will give the average citizen access to the airwaves and provide exposure to new and local music, under-represented ideas, opinions, news and information on local goings on and to do so with an understanding that we are responsible to the community and it’s wishes about content and the balance between free speech and the use of profanity.

Podcasting our archives! Now on Clickcaster

We started last week. We are uploading all of our studio free shows from 5 years of Pirate Radio broadcasting here in Boulder.

We looked at all the online web services based Podcasting services and the big three (Clickcaster, Odeo and PodOMatic) all provided great stuff. We played with all of them for a few weeks, and we've finally settled on Clickcaster (www.clickcaster.com).

We like em cause their local to us, to start with. But, after using all three, they're also the best of the lot. Here's why we like them:

-Really (like, REALLY) easy to use

-Support huge file uploads (some of our studio free shows are 500MB)

-No limit on total space used in your account (PodOmatic, for instance, limits you to 250MB total, that won't hold even one of some of our shows)

-Everything happens on your machine. When you're recording a show, it saves it locally to your hard drive (the other guys stream it to their servers). Try doing this on a wireless connection to your home router…
