Community Control of Local Radio.
Lewis, Peter M.
This study was designed to determine to what extent local communities control the local radio which serves them, by what formal mechanisms their control is secured, and the underlying assumptions and goals which govern the practice of the professionals who have charge of the facilities. Two British radio stations, BBC Radio Bristol and the Independent Local Radio (ILR) station--Thames Valley Broadcasting in Reading, are reviewed, as is STAD Radio Amsterdam. Contexts in which each of the stations operate are provided, giving background information on their creation and leading into separate discussions of each station's profile, including start date, studio address, area served, frequency, staff, finances, hours of operation, programming and operations control. In each case the means and forms of local input are examined. An appendix gives a brief description of two Canadian radio stations, Radio Cinq, Montreal, and Vancouver Co-op Radio. (RAO)
