OBR.FM  announces Radio Camp!  February 24th-March 9th

After a little over a year of broadcasting independent media for and by the 99%, OBR.FM kicks off its two week “Radio Camp” with a meet and greet at its studio at 9 Hamilton place in Boston, Massachusetts at 7pm Saturday February 23rd, and all are welcome.  Come see our studio, meet our radio hosts and enjoy some indy music, thought and media then spend some time with us as we go to RADIO CAMP!

What is “Radio Camp”? It is an opportunity for sharing and learning about the production of indy media through our radio station. In this two week period we plan to immerse ourselves in all the facets of OBR’s operations, from the ins and outs of broadcasting a live program to the behind the scenes work of marketing, fund-raising, social networking, podcasting, and engineering.

All of OBR’s events, meetings and activities are open to the public and we urge you to join in, we’ll be sending out reminders on Facebook and Twitter of Radio Camp activities. Check out the schedule below and note special events marked with an ** geared to the general public looking to delve into indy media.

Contact us if you have any questions or ideas for this exciting period: radio@occupyboston.org

See you @ camp!

Occupied Nation

 I went downtown a while ago, well earlier this morning I guess. I was suprised to see how many people were out at 7am on a holiday.As I walked by the vetrans place i watched the police work crews, putting out all the barracades while a group of about fifty motorcycle-cops rode by.  As I glanced at the group of police suprvisors meeting across the street I immediately tried to remember if there was an occupy boston event that i had somehow forgotten, and then realized that the police weren’t in their black military garb, so it couldn’t be occupy.LOL, it was time to get a coffee 🙂

While we celebrate our independence in these United States, let’s remember what it’s supposed to mean. Let’s remember that we were taught in school about how this country declared it’s independence from oppression. Let’s remember those brave souls that stood up against any…

NBA Offseason: The Brooklyn Nets

Alex is the host of Occupy the Game, airing live ever Moday @ 7pm on http://www.obr.fm

Occupy the Game

The Nets were a pretty bad team the last two seasons and there’s not much else that needs to be said beyond but in the last few days they have taken major steps towards becoming a big player in the Eastern Conference, First they resigned small forward Gerald Wallace to a 4 year $40 million contract. Then in an effort to convince star point guard Deron Williams to stay with the team as they move to Brooklyn next season, they set up a deal that would bring Atlanta Hawks shooting guard Joe “I’ve-got-an-unmovable-contract” Johnson to Brooklyn in exchange for Jordan Farmar, Johan Petro, Anthony Morrow, and Jordan Williams along with Deshawn Stevenson via a sign and trade. The best part is they made the deal not happen unless Deron Williams resigned. Well Today he announced he would be resigning with the Nets and Joining them in Brooklyn. The Hawks trade…

Welcome to The Show

Alex Ingram is the host of Occupy the Game, every Monday @ 7pm on http://www.obr.fm!

Occupy the Game

Most people don’t know this but the minor leagues in baseball is still a professional league. In fact all a league has to do to be professional is pay its players a living wage. Players who are in the minor leagues are acutely aware of people’s perception of their situation and of the reality. The know they’re professionals but they also know if they don’t hit the majors their nephew and his friends won’t see it that way. To these guys they call the majors The Show. Same job, some of the same faces even, and just as much work. The difference is two fold. The first difference is money. You can very quickly become a millionaire. Frankly that’s totally awesome but the second thing is even better. The second difference is now You’ve made it. Respect will always be there. You join a select group. You’ve accomplished your dream…
