Grass Roots Radio – Week 4 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, the Grass Roots team started working towards their one hour live show for week six – and they gave us a little audio update of where they are with the project…


Alex Lewczuk is an experienced lecturer and programme producer, who in his guest lecture discusses how to put together a magazine format programme: from how to set out a clock for a show, generating ideas for themes and content and making things that you might not expect relevant to the audience of your community radio station.

You can download his talk as a podcast here, and also read through his slides for extra information and links.
