KBDY History

‚ÄčThis public radio station, run by the Montgomery-Hyde Park neighborhood association, was licensed at 89.9 in April of 1974. Volunteers ran the on-air operations. Financial problems forced them off the air in 1978, and a group called “Women in Motion” came up with funding to operate it. By 1980, they were forced out due to business inconsistencies. In 1987, broadcasts resumed, although the station was only licensed to operate with 10 watts of power. There were several sources of operating funds, but the Federal Communications Commission finally pulled the plug after an extended period of technical problems.
