KLBP is currently accepting public submissions for inclusion on our now-launched radio station. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or a beginner looking to get started, we want to hear your ideas. Once submitted, shows are put into one of three categories: On-air ready, In development, and Training*. Currently, priority is given to those shows that are on-air ready and local to Long Beach, San Pedro, Wilmington, and the immediate surrounding communities. You can find our evaluation criteria and technical audio requirements below.
*Shows/individuals who need further development or training will be contacted once we have moved into our studio and can provide direct support. We anticipate moving into our studio late 2018. In the meantime, we encourage you to check out our events calendar for upcoming workshops and training opportunities.

The FCC considers a broadcast to be indecent if it contains “language or material that, in context, depicts or describes, in terms patently offensive as measured by contemporary community standards for the broadcast medium, sexual or excretory activities or organs. This memo from Prometheus Radio gives some guidance as to its meaning by analyzing the definition of indecency and summarizing FCC rulings.
KLBP is a non-commercial station and is governed by the FCC rules specific to non-commercial educational broadcasting. You can also find additional Underwriting resources through Prometheus Radio.
