Narrower Terms
Scope note
Media refers to the "mass communication" definition of the word and is meant to describe zines about publishing, news, and other writings in print and online.

This term has been assigned to many zines, possibly using different definitions of the word. Someday it would be nice to review the zines and apply more precise headings.

Can't Stop the Waves: A Community Radio Zine

"Can't Stop the Waves: A Community Radio Zine is meant to be a basic introduction into the world of alternative media broadcasting in Montreal, Canada, and around the world, and more than a historical exploration, it's meant to be a useful resource guide for anyone slightly interested in getting involved. We've included brief histories of community radio stations, explored the political philosophies behind the movement, spotlighted some excellent radio endeavours around the world, expounded tips for good radio making and created a resource lists of organizations, collectives, and stations in Montreal, Canada you can get involved with. It's far from comprehensive or definitive, but hopefully will get something tingling in your minds. Take back the airwaves!"

Rad Dad #18

"The Sex and Love issue". "It's got a wide selection of essays ranging from a rumination on the anti-breeder mentality of some radical environmental communities, to one person's break-up letter with her radical community, to stories of non-monogamy, sex education for kids, nudity and children, and interview, and even Star Wars. Wow."
