A few weeks ago I published a post about Access Radio – what it is, and how you can get involved through Arrow FM, the Wairarapa’s Access Radio station. This week, I want to bring you this week’s schedule to demonstrate the variety of programming being made by your community for your community.
Fans of Rupert Watson’s Feldenkrais class at the Featherston Community Centre might be interested in his show, Move with East, which airs on the third Thursday of every month. Carterton Connections is a great local events and news round-up show broadcast from the Masterton studio, and last week presenter Cheryl interviewed Maeve Finnegan of Goodsocks, who is doing a roaring internet trade in awesomely trendy socks from her living room in Featherston! If you are a music fan, you can tune into Sixties Nostalgia or Friday Night Blues. There are programmes broadcast in Spanish and German, Pasifika and Maori prgorammes, and shows that explore disability and access issues, mental health issues, and general health and fitness.
But, I suppose the real point I want to make is that if you don’t see a programme in the schedule that reflects your interests, background or reality, then come and MAKE IT YOURSELF! At Arrow FM, we offer training to all our presenters to operate the studio equipment, and we do not impose editorial input (except to provide advice on matters of broadcasting codes of practice and legal responsibilities).
So, contact me via this blog or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss getting your show on air!
