It’s likely because our microphones have quit working.
About four years ago, the Federal Communications Commission decided that a specific slice of the radio spectrum would be reallocated for use in internet broadband services. The aim was to make mobile broadband services faster. The FCC then auctioned off this spectrum to a number of broadband companies that include T-Mobile, Comcast and Dish TV.
This, however, also came at a cost — people, organizations, and businesses across America lost access to this radio spectrum which they used for mostly wireless microphone services. Journalist David Zweig looked into the issue and wrote about how one specific group — school theater and amateur theater productions — will not only be losing access to a valuable resource but also may need to pay thousands of dollars for technological alternatives.
Kudzu Playhouse falls into the $40,000 need category and humbly accepts any and all donations to reach our goal. Our full legal name is Northwest Mississippi Theatre Guild, for those who would like to support our efforts.
