UNHCR | Refworld | Philippine radio journalist survives shooting ...
The reason for the attack on the director and anchor of DYYM Hot FM, a
government-run community radio station, was not clear, but Indelible told
the center that he believed it was related to his work. He has discussed
sensitive issues ...

3. Please Help Todd Urick

Friends:

Todd Urick is an absolute angel who helped countless west coast organizations apply for licenses in the last FCC application window and has run on hard times since the holidays. It hasn't gotten any better for him since November.

KZME (Metroeast's new FM entity) would not exist without his work, and PRA would not have a 1.3kw Full-Power CP in southern Oregon - and that's just how he helped organizations I was involved in.

Please help out one of our own who can't help himself right now.

Argument over advertising revenue could get nasty
BY BRAD WORKS, TRANSCONTINENTAL MEDIA
The Nova Scotia Business Journal

AMHERST - Maritime Broadcasting is not alone in opposition to the proposed
licence for a new Amherst-based community FM radio station.

Joining the owner of CKDH in its battle to keep the Tantramar Community
Radio Society off the air were publishers Paul Marchant of the Oxford
Journal and Richard Spicer of the Coffee News. There were also more than
50 other letters against sent to the Canadian Radio-television and
Telecommunications Commission.

The were joined by about 70 arguing in favour of the application, which is
now in it second attempt after its first was denied last September.

"With the global economic crisis, the Oxford Journal can ill afford to
lose anymore revenue in advertising," Marchant said in his letter to the
regulator. "We have been publishing a weekly newspaper for 110 years and
never before have the times been as difficult."

Spicer echoed Marchant's concerns. "If you throw another radio station
into the fray, someone is going to lose plain and simple," Spicer wrote.

All three also expressed concerns about the non-profit group's ambitious
fundraising goals effect on other community groups.

In an earlier interview, TCRS spokesman Randy Smith dismissed those
concerns saying the proposed station would work with those groups to help
boost their efforts.

The Town of Springhill appears to share Smith's view. "We are committed to
working with a not-for-profit organization that will be community-based
and volunteer driver and that will provide our citizens with an outlet to
voice their opinions, promote their events and activities and showcase our
home-grown talent," Springhill chief administrative officer Don Tabor said
in the letter to the CRTC from the town.

CKDH is still waiting to hear from the CRTC on its own FM licence
application. – Amherst Daily News

UNESCO releases manual for community radio managers
UNESCO (Communiqué de presse) - Paris,France

<http://portal.unesco.org/ci/en/ev.php-URL_ID=28438&URL_DO=DO_TOPIC&URL_SECTION=201.html>

UNESCO Office in New Delhi has published Digital archiving of audio
content using WINISIS and Greenstone software: a manual for community
radio managers. This self-instructional handbook is aimed at helping
managers of community and FM radio stations, public service broadcasting
agencies and any other organizations that deal with audio files create
prototype archives of digital audio documents.

[...]

This new publication is a reliable manual for digital archiving of
multimedia contents, with special focus on community radio contents. Its
users will find it helpful in their every-day work. The publication has
its genesis in the recommendations and proceedings of two events,
supported by UNESCO: National Consultation on Community Radio for
Practising and Potential Community Radio Operators in India and National
Consultation to Review Community Radio in Nepal, during which community
radio station managers stressed the importance of archiving digital audio
contents.

In line with the needs of the community, the manual guides users in
creating their own archives with stable, free software like WINISIS,
GenISIS and Greenstone. The book also provides the URL addresses from
where this software can be downloaded.

The manual can be downloaded here.

L'UNESCO publie un manuel pour les responsables de radios communautaires

Le Bureau de l'UNESCO à New Delhi publie Digital archiving of audio
content using WINISIS and Greenstone software: a manual for community
radio managers. Ce manuel autodidactique a pour objet d'aider les
responsables de stations de radio FM et communautaires, les organismes
audiovisuels publics et toute organisation traitant des fichiers audio à
créer des modèles d'archivage des documents audio numériques.
<http://portal.unesco.org/ci/fr/ev.php-URL_ID=28438&URL_DO=DO_TOPIC&URL_SECTION=201.html>


Cette nouvelle publication est un manuel de référence sur l'archivage
numérique des contenus multimédias, destiné tout particulièrement aux
radios communautaires. Il a été conçu pour aider les utilisateurs au
quotidien. La publication s'inspire des recommandations et actes des deux
consultations nationales sur la radio communautaire organisées en Inde et
au Népal, avec le soutien de l'UNESCO. Au cours de ces réunions, les
responsables de stations communautaires avaient souligné l'importance de
l'archivage des contenus audio numériques.

Pour répondre aux besoins de la communauté, le manuel guide l'utilisateur
pour lui permettre de créer ses propres archives avec des logiciels libres
offrant une grande stabilité, comme WINISIS, GenISIS et Greenstone. Une
liste d'adresses URL pour télécharger ces logiciels figure dans le manuel.
