Hi Everyone,
This is a list of things we specifically need volunteers for to help 
with in preparing for the Radio Free Urbana barnraising, the barnraising 
itself, and the IMC all-ages, no-smoking first floor performance space's 
grand opening.

Please reply to the barnraising list -- 
Rfu-barnraising at lists.chambana.net -- or to the specific contacts 
mentioned below if you can help with anything on this list or just show 
up to help as indicated.

Through the efforts of dozens of volunteers, we've come very far toward 
putting another community radio station on the air here in 
Urbana-Champaign, but we're coming down to the wire and we need all the 
help we can get over the next week to show our barnraising visitors just 
how active this town is and why we're such a media hotspot.

Volunteers for these tasks are needed to prepare for the barnraising.

be turned away due to financial considerations. You can register online at:
Or show up at the door, starting Friday morning, Nov. 11.

This will also be the grand opening of the IMC's new performance space, 
as well as the rest of the IMC's first floor, with a 5-band show for $5 
on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 7pm to midnite. Come by and check out the 
progress we've made as we party while continuing to build the station.

Then tune in to WRFU on 104.5 FM on Sunday at 5pm for the first 
broadcast and a sampler of all the great low-power community radio 
you'll be hearing on Radio Free Urbana.
Thanks for your help!
