About JU Radio

All our programmes are conceptualised, recorded and executed by community members or students (of the University and outside the University). Most of the existing members were at some point of time our listeners. We do live-shows on special days and keep a note of the callers. It helps us to directly engage with the listeners, and turning a large number of listeners into performers. The local clubs help us in outreach to the interior pockets of the community. One-fourths of programmes are recorded outside the studio engaging the low-income groups.

Signature Programme:
We don't have a single signature programme. Shishu Tirtha is a programme meant for children wherein their favorite stories and their self-composed stories are read. A special segment, Child Radio Reporter, which is produced in collaboration with UNICEF, goes on air every Sunday with a group of 50 children to generate Child Rights Awareness. Sanskriti, is another interesting and popular programme which is based on culture for folk music, instrumental music, radio-drama, classical music, band, Rabindra Sangeet and vocal. Baul singers have helped us record several rare folk songs and document their journey. Community RadioJU is also instrumental in reviving interest in classical music. Alochana, a weekly programme based on legal and gender awareness is another very popular programme which is sought by our listeners.

Community media is any form of media that is created and controlled by a community, either a geographic community or a community of identity or interest. However, if the fundamental premise of the media is to engage those groups that are categorically excluded and marginalized from the media-making process, it will be included on this website, even if it is not explicitly created and controlled by the community.
