Community Radio: Radical Media Opening Channels For Communities | MIT Center for Civic Media

Community Radio: Radical Media Opening Channels For Communities | MIT Center for Civic Media | Community Media | Scoop.it

After his review of Macpherson, Downing calls in Benjamin Barber’s definition of a “strong democracy.” He notes that “‘Strong democratic talk’ requires listening as well as uttering,” and points out that Barber sees media as a channel (rather than an institution) closely tied to a locality. Girard’s vision of community radio is exactly that: not simply an institution preaching or educating, but of a channel bringing knowledge to and from a locality.

“It needs more anarchy. And it needs more moods. The range of human experiences is covered and reported about on NPR, but it’s not reflected in the tone, and it’s not reflected in the style.”

Radio World: What Is College Radio Day?

Radio World: What Is College Radio Day? | Community Media | Scoop.it

So the original idea was for a celebration of college radio, to remind people that we exist & that we are one of the last bastions of creative programming out there. However, a much more pressing & serious issue arose almost immediately: the recent trend of selling off college radio stations by cash-strapped colleges & universities (Rice & Vanderbilt, for example). There is a strong need to remind colleges & universities that selling off their college stations silences their students’ voices. We need to take a stand & collectively say, 'No more stations must be sold!'
