Neighborhood Public Radio (NPR) was founded in 2004 by multimedia artists and educators LeE Montgomery, Jon Brumit and Michael Trigilio.  Acting as a traveling band of guerilla broadcasters, NPR personnel have hosted thematic broadcasts far and wide including in numerous galleries in San Francisco, at Chicago's Version 5 Festival (2005) and San Jose's Zero1 Festival (2006) as well as various projects in Europe.  One of these was in Servia where, funded by a grant from CEC Artslink, NPR worked with media organization

Enabled by a Creative Work Fund Grant, NPR recently collaborated in a series of projects collectively titled Radio Cartography in partnership with San Francisco's Southern Exposure Gallery.  Most recently, the NPR collaborative had a residency at the Headlands Center for Art in Marin, CA.

Neighborhood Public Radio has been named "Best Super Local Radio Station" by San Francisco Magazine and has been feature in Punk Planet magazin, Artforum, and the Chicago Reader.

Neighborhood Public Radio is an independent, artist-run radio project committed to providing an alternative media platform for artists, activists, musicians, and community members.

Our motto: If it’s in the neighborhood and it makes noise .. we hope to put it on the air.

At few times in recent history has it been more imperative that communities find ways to make their voices heard. As the FCC attempts to make it easier for radio stations to be co-opted by large corporations, and as the Corporation that runs our one National "Public" radio outlet conspires to exclude all other voices from the left end of the radio dial, individuals in the Bay Area are making it known that they will not be restricted from accessing the airwaves that are rightfully their own.
