What makes radio so crucial in times of crisis?
Community radio is holding together underground music scenes right now, providing a space for curators to keep introducing new music to listeners while we can't be together in the club.
This episode of The Hour tries to build a better understanding of what makes radio so powerful in a moment of crisis. Expect to hear stations across the world sharing their experiences of lockdown, (Seoul Community Radio, Dublab.ES, Radio Raheem, Foundation FM, Boxout.fm & Hong Kong Community Radio), find out what it's like to broadcast on national radio during a pandemic with BBC presenter Jamz Supernova, and learn about streaming from home with NTS head of production Rory Bowens.
