Nablus's first radio station——the second in the Palestinian territories——was founded in 1997 as a mostly music broadcasting venue. This personal account by TMFM's founder/manager describes its evolution——mainly under the impact of the intifada——into a diversified community-oriented station that became an important information conduit for Palestinians confined to their homes during frequent curfews. While describing the station's tribulations and struggles to survive——including the studio's shelling and Israeli confiscation of transmitters and equipment——a picture emerges of a town's daily life under extreme conditions.
