Access Sacramento Applies for New Low Power FM Radio Station

Access Sacramento Applies for New Low Power FM Radio Station

Access Sacramento’s radio operation “The Voice” may begin broadcasting over-the-airwaves from downtown Sacramento in late 2014 if the FCC approves an application filed last week to operate a Low-Power FM (LPFM) radio station.

The application-filing window closed Friday for non-profit groups to submit an on-line request for the rarely offered LPFM broadcast frequencies.  The last opportunity was a decade ago.

 “Because a LPFM station like this broadcasts less than 10-miles in any one direction, the programming is acutely local,” said Shane Carpenter, Access Sacramento’s radio coordinator. “Because our programmers are already used to serving Sacramento County on cable, this would be a great opportunity for additional outreach.”

Wedding pros invited to experience Yolo County facilities

Join us as we spend the day discovering the wedding facilities in the countryside of Yolo County. Plus, you’ll get more time to network with other wedding pros, riding together in a bus to the various locales.

Historic homes and gardens, a sprawling ranch and quaint market are all part of the tour. Our member facilities need this opportunity to be featured since the SacAfWPi mixers are usually held closer to Sacramento.

Sacramento Man Creates Unique Business of Saving Memories

Sacramento Man Creates Unique Business of Saving Memories

After a varied and colorful career spanning everything from environmental activism to running a passport photo business, Marty Nelson opened Video Lab Multimedia, now located at 2630 Arden Way. Since 1985, as he tells it, he’s been in the business of saving memories.

In fact, Nelson is confident that Video Lab provides the most comprehensive source for saving memories in Sacramento and possibly Northern California.

In short, customers bring in everything from VHS tapes, audiotapes, vinyl records, old photos and negatives, professional format video, 8 and 16mm film and just about everything else out there and Nelson transfers, duplicates or even edits them into a more contemporary, durable, longer lasting digital format, including DVDs and hard drives. Memories saved!

And what sorts of memories is Nelson saving? Everything from irreplaceable home movies to slides of precious family vacations to old ¼ inch audiotape reels.
