They understand that radio stations, even community radio stations, need to generate income to stay afloat, but they should be mindful of the frequency, intrusiveness, and appropriateness of their advertising. Southall's Desi Radio earns up to 50% of its revenue this way, and it has a six-month waiting list for potential advertisers. The Prometheus Radio Project was founded by former pirate radio stations that were part of Radio Mutiny, an unlicensed broadcaster located in West Philadelphia that broadcasted in the mid-1990s.
