The article presents information on the plans of Brick Radio Collective in Louisville, Kentucky to build its first low-power radio station, WXBH 92.7, approved by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission. If everything goes according to plan, the radio station will be on the air by the end of October 2006. The plan includes raising $70,000 to cover the cost of a transmitter, antenna and building studio space in Old Louisville's Brick House Community Center. The group began the FCC permit application process in 2001. The permit was approved in April 2005 and the station has 18 months from approval to debut on the air.
