Description:

Steve Elliot was the catalyst in getting the KGNU radio station started. He describes its beginnings as a Community Free School class in 1972 and the travails of acquiring equipment, getting an FCC license, and the other organizational work that went into creating the radio station, which finally went on the air in 1978. He also talks about the Community Free School as a springboard for what are now permanent Boulder institutions and how the Community Free School created a model for other Boulder organizations by showing that there was money to be made in adult education.
