mediageek 2006-06-22: Community Radio in India, continued

We listen to more from part 1 of the Rise of Community Radio in India, produced by Jaggi Singh and Emmanuel Madan, this time focusing on some possible pitfalls and the government restrictions placed on this new service. We also hear about a new bill introduced to Congress that would restore low-power FM, possibly paving the way for hundreds of new community stations.


mediageek 2007-06-15: The Rise of Community Radio in India, Pt. 1

While many of us in North America have had access to community radio for decades, the same has not be true worldwide. India’s government only recently approved licensing community radio stations. In this program we hear an excerpt from part 1 of a series produced by Jaggi Singh and Emmanuel Madan for CKUT in Montreal, exploring the history of community radio in India.

The full program is available for download at the A-Infos Radio Project.

Sorry that it’s late, but I’m sure glad it was recovered.
