    Carpenter s book 40 Watts from Nowhere is the story of how she changes her life to follow her dream Moving from a safe but boring existence as a legal secretary in the town she loves San Francisco, Carpenter takes a risk and starts her own pirate radio system in her apartment broadcasting whatever music she likes to a very limited area for a few hours a day Readers follow her journey as she befriends tech types to help her with a transmitter and an antenna More challenges await her as she breaks [...]

    Read it in one night Couldn t help myself I suspect I might ve enjoyed this book so much because I m involved in local community radio, but I did enjoy the heck out of it, while marveling at Carpenter s commitment to pirate radio extending to letting random strangers tromp in and out of her apartment at all hours of the day and night Also marveling how, in the heady days of the early 90s, giving federal agents a false name does not result in a hail of gunfire A great look at how a pirate radio s [...]

    So adventurous Carpenter documents the joys and trials of starting and maintaining a pirate radio station in the 90 s in L.A Makes me linger a moment when I hear fuzzy airwaves between stations Someone read this book so we can drive around and find a local station that comes in for only ten blocks

    It will likely be a long time before I give five stars to a non fiction title, although the same is true of fiction, I suppose.Anyway, the book is good, although it doesn t really focus on the stuff of interest to me, the technical, the legal well, maybe the legal wouldn t be too interesting , and some subjects it touches on so lightly the 1996 telecom act that allowed much ownership by one entity in a single market which probably has to do with why I have to get up and change the station ever [...]

    Wanting to learn about the world of pirate radio , I checked this out from the library While not disappointing, the book feels incomplete in addressing what could such a great and expansive topic for further discussion Of course, it is primarily the author s retelling of her experience starting up KBLT and KPBJ in San Fran and LA, and as the years go by she crosses pathes with Berkeley radicals, various musicians and druggie types, and nefarious FCC G men While a lot of this information is fun [...]

    Carpenter jump out of the Pirate Radio airplane without a parachute Colorful descriptions are for the PG 13 read, be warned I could see the statements Sue and others were making in S.F and L.A through use of micro radio transmission Communities formed around people within neighborhoods In a world before cheap SMS texting and smart phones, radio was the main way to connect with a movement or community Sue kept taking her experience with Pirate Radio until the end.My interest in this book is due t [...]

    Sue Carpenter takes the reader on a joy ride with numerous highs and lows in her quest to fly under the FCC s radar while operating a pirate radio station in the late 90 s You can feel her frustration as she shares her Silver Lake home with a cast of sloppy characters who visit for 2 hours at a time, spinning records and CDs and leaving behind mounds of garbage, empties and cigarette butts Surprisingly enough, most of the book deals with the everyday trials and tribulations of running the statio [...]

    Elaine
    A well written non fiction account of one woman s foray into the world of pirate radio and her misadventures therein I have a personal soft spot for this book, as I read it while working at a radio station However, the radio jargon is kept to a minimum so even the most ignorant layman can understand what s going on While the spine of the story rests on the author s struggle to keep her radio station on the air, the body of the narrative is much universal that of discovering how far we can and w [...]

    Joining has made me take a long look at my bookshelf to remember everything I ve read over the past few years, and this was a highlight It s a light little romp along with Sue Carpenter, who ran pirate radio stations KPBJ and KBLT in the mid 90s out of San Fran and then LA Any music lover will sympathize with Sue s motives getting decent music on the radio because Infinity and ClearChannel suck ass and will get a vicarious thrill out of raging against the FCC I wanted to start a pirate radio sta [...]

    The woman hated what regular radio was doing to music and sought to do the sort of radio she wanted to hear Of course, anyone can do this now thanks to podcasting and whatnot, but before this here inter ma net thing, it was quite the undertaking The story of Sue and her two pirate stations, KPBJ and KBLT and can I say that naming stations after sandwiches is brilliant , is a fun, interesting read, especially if you, too, hate terrestrial radio And really, who doesn t these days

    Shanna
    I read this book a few years ago and thought it was very interesting This lady starts an underground pirate radio station, which then starts to become fairly popular in the San Francisco area It tells of how she had to dodge the police and how she was almost caught a few times One part I particularly enjoyed is when someone said they saw a flyer for her radio station in the KROQ station and what one of the DJs thought of it.It was definitely worth the read.

    My brother lent me this as he is a radio junkie.This was a really engaging story about a young woman trying to do something fulfilling, creative, and daring with her life and succeeding.The story has a great pace and flow and keeps you running along with the story and dying to find out what happens next Fuck the FCC If you like regular Jane outlaw stories this one s for you.

    Erin
    the great guru of book knowledge, carol hudak, loaned this to me when i was in high school radio why had i not thought of this before a music lovers fantasy is to DJ for the masses or not so masses after reading this book i knew i wanted to get involved with radio and never looked back viva la terrestrial signal

    Ashley Sasnett

    Being a DJ for a start up radio station via internet, FCC dont get a wedgy about it I found it was really interesting and informative.

    Mellen
    Really interesting fun read for anyone, but especially if you are familiar with underground music of the late 90s.
