Grass Roots Radio – Week 2 Podcast

00:00 /

Grass Roots Radio is a chance for people to learn the basics of how to set up and run a community radio station offered by Siren FM, the University of Lincoln and the The Journalism Foundation, the charity that aims to encourage free journalism in a free world.

Work produced over the six week course will be broadcast on Siren FM on Saturdays between 4 and 5pm, and you’ll be able to hear parts of that here on the website as well as download podcasts from the weekly guest speakers.

This week, Lawrie Hallett, who used to work at Ofcom, gives an idea of how to get through the regulation hurdles for setting up a radio station – and how do you know what your audience wants? Lawrie gives his advice on different ways of doing surveys and monitoring your audience on a small station.
