Hi, Ive written an original article cor community radio now. Please could someone restore it, thanks. Nick

admin: please move to community radio (de-capitalise)[edit]

Since this is not a proper noun, would an admin please move it from Community Radio to community radio (without capital letters)? ?radiojon 05:23, 2004 Jun 21 (UTC)

As far as I am aware, Radiojon, all Wikipedia articles -- common noun (phrases)s or not -- must begin with a capital letter. -- Picapica 23:08, 14 Apr 2005 (UTC)
That's my experience as well. --tranquileye 12:00, 21 September 2005 (UTC)
The case of the first letter is always ignored by the MediaWiki software that runs Wikipedia. See Wikipedia:Naming_conventions_(technical_restrictions)#Lower_case_first_letter for details on this. --h2g2bob 23:29, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

Community radios in Jordan are privately owned radio with community programming. There are no separate regulations for community radios in that country. Community radios are defined as owned by communities through associations that represent them and their programs are designed by representatives of the community. Ammanet is a private radio not a community radio, and university radios are public radios. saidsoul

List of Radio Stations[edit]

Some of the external links are to individual stations rather than sites about community radio as a whole. This could end up as a very long list, dominating the rest of the page, if more stations are added. Is there a case for moving these into a separate page listing community stations, and removing them from this one? MarkSG 16:36, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

There is a case for this, as we are now seeing individual stations adding small sections of their own. This page is growing and the listing may need to be seperated. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.220.160.36 (talkcontribs)

Community radio in Africa[edit]

This article could use some more work on African community radios. --A12n (talk) 05:59, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Community Radio in the U.S.[edit]

I changed the lead to the CR article, because the discussion on CR in the U.S. needlessly became mired in setting it apart from pirate radio. The new definition is universally accepted by every major related institution in the U.S., including the NFCB, FCC, CPB, Arbitron, and so forth. The information on CR in Australia should be edited accordingly. I'll undertake that. BTW this change grew out of a related discussion with User:Orlady, whose POV is on my talk page. Allreet (talk) 19:12, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

In fact, the entire lead should be re-written to address the worldwide community radio movement, whereas at present it seems to have a United Kingdom POV that focuses, as I said, on pirate radio. As I see it, the lead should summarize the development and significance of CR globally and provide an overview of the differentiation between the most dominant forms. The sections on CR in specific parts of the world should be sourced better, but seem reliable for the most part. The section on CR in the U.S., my personal interest, needs to be expanded. There is no mention of pioneering events, such as the founding of Pacifica and the organizing efforts of Lorenzo Milam in the 1960s-70s, or significant developments since then, such as the effect of government funding, the drift toward professionalization and audience-building, etc. These issues are amply documented through sources readily available on the web. Initially, this would take about 6-8 paragraphs (including the existing material), but eventually enough could be developed to warrant splitting this as its own article. Comments welcome.

Nepal and Radio Sagarmatha[edit]

As Radio Sagarmatha already has its own article (which needs some clean-up as well), I would suggest moving some of the content from the Nepal section of Community radio to that page to keep it more concise on the Community radio article. Crysb (talk) 15:01, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

India[edit]

This section has too many mentions of individual radio stations and their details, achievements etc. I would suggest cutting down individual mentions and more detail on the policy, judicial and legislative approach in India. Ramnathbhat (talk) 13:37, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

New section about SS-DAB in UK too promotional?[edit]

I note that a new paragraph was added with a section about small-scale DAB in the UK. In that paragraph, which was contributed by an IP user, there is mention of only one site. Is that too promotional? Should the paragraph be edited to remove the link to the specific site? I'm not in the UK and don't know whether this is a useful site to include. It just feels a bit like a promotional edit. Any opinions from other editors? - Dyork (talk) 21:26, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

I am in the UK and familiar with the Community Radio scene but not with the specific station linked. I would have thought that if there was a link to an example of a Community Radio station planning to use small-scale DAB then a wiki-link to an existing article as used to illustrate other sections of the article would be more appropriate.
The whole paragraph could be improved with more details outlining how small scale DAB in the UK is currently in a trial phase with an handful of transmitters operating under special trial licences, with wider licencing up and coming soon. I don't have the time right now to make such edits but highlight if someone else thinks it would be useful. Philedmondsuk (talk) 16:26, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
