The Rise of Community Radio in India

Community radio is very new to India, only recently legalized by the government. It shows a lot of promise, but there are also potential problems. Jaggi Singh and Emmanuel Madan are producing a series of radio programs exploring the rise of this new community media in India for CKUT in Montreal.

Jaggi and Emmanuel were kind enough to allow me to excerpt part 1 in this series, that first aired April 16, for the radioshow. The first segment aired today, and will be available online shortly.

You can listen to the whole unedited 53 minute program by downloading it from (and if you do, please consider making a donation to keep the great nonprofit radio4all archive going strong).
