Community Power


This week, there’s a focus on the advantages of community radio, as Jim, Steph and James are joined by Richard Watts, stalwart of another volunteer-run station.

They talk about how the LBGTQ community is negelected in the commericial media sector, with the specialised non-profit media providing a rich alternative.

Over the phone, J.B. brings up how he became associated with community radio out in rural Horsham (with a fart sound-board), his move to Adelaide and how he has influenced JOY behind the scenes.

J.B. also gives his thoughts on why community radio is still important and how we can keep it running in an increasingly digital world.

Aired on the 6th of June, 2016.
