Missal Mix, Radio TISS: 88.4FM

30 09 2008

From September 15-20, 2008, the second-year students of CMCS attended a week-long workshop in community radio with filmmaker and media activist Stalin K. It involved programming for a (hypothetical) TISS community radio station as well as developing individual radio segments. The week was spent interviewing people on a wide variety of topics and inviting them to record the songs of their choice in the CMCS studio. The result? This 38-minute programme.

To ensure a diversity of voices, students reached out to people across departments, professions, languages, classes, castes, genders, etc. The community members who participated in the programme include faculty, administration, maintenance, students, non-teaching staff, contract employees, security guards, canteen workers, etc.

At the end of the week, the students ‘narrowcasted’ the programme in front of an audience of approximately 50 people. To listen to it, please click on the link below. (The link will not stream audio but will allow you to download the file.)
