Nostalgica FM Radio in Copiapo, Atacama region says that they set up a mobile broadcasting unit shortly after the Chilean miner incident happened.

They have been dedicating a great deal of their content to ongoing news coverage.  Here are some details of the unit deployed on site.

One of the celebrities visiting their studios were popular Don Francisco from Sabado Gigante.

On the scheduled day of the rescue (oct 12), they were offering a live camera feed independent of the official video feed.  A crisp, lively mix of tunes from Gypsy Kings to Jose Feliciano to Luis Miguel was the perfect background for what was expected to be a defining event in Chilean history.

They mentioned that their FM broadcast was being used by other stations in Chile and in nearby countries.

We wish this radio station the best and may its growth help increase awareness in the Atacama region and the start of lasting progress as proposed by President Pinera in his press conference on the same day.
