Leicester is represented by a vibrant and diverse collection of community radio stations that are run by volunteers making programmes for, and about, their local communities. In this programme I’m going to find out more about community media in Leicester. I’ve been speaking with organisers and volunteers in different community media groups, to find out what makes them tick, and why they volunteer at the front-line of the citizen media revolution. I started off by visiting Simon Parker from Citizen’s Eye, a community media news agency, who is helping people affected by homelessness find a voice.
