Kinvara Community Radio
Kinvara Community Radio is a local initiative to set up a live-streaming as well as FM broadcast radio station serving Kinvara environs as well as ‘Kinvara worldwide’ – interested listeners outside the limited broadcast area. The idea and ideals of community radio are to give voice and access to local people, and to serve local interests that are not served by other media.
The Kinvara community seems ideal as a location for this kind of media project. There are many interesting people, farmers, artists, musicians, sports enthusiasts, business and professional people, activists and characters of all sorts. In addition there is a wider Kinvara community around the world who would be able to tune in on the internet and keep up with their home place and people. It is a chance to have very local news presented, as well as local connections to national and international news events. Many are the possibilities. The roles of presenters, writers, technicians, news researchers, and much more, will be open to any community member, as this endeavour will always be volunteer powered to a large if not total degree.
