Who's behind South Leeds Community Radio?
South Leeds Community Radio was set up in 2006 by Catherine Mitchell and Al Garthwaite to give local people a voice and encourage people to get together and show the world how much talent and activity there is in the area.
The radio station aims to produce quality programmes, made by and for the people of South Leeds. We train people of all ages and backgrounds in multimedia, communication, ESOL, arts and basic skills, from beginners to advanced skills. We take on projects like Turn It Up and work closely with organisations and groups in the area, and with Leeds City Council.
South Leeds Community Radio involves local people in media, making their own programmes about issues that concern and ideas that inspire, and playing music for everyone in the community.
Tell us what you want to hear
You don't have to get involved. Just let us know what would be interesting, entertaining or useful to you.
If you're a youth or community group, a college or school, a workplace or day centre, we'd like to work with you. What can we provide that's useful to you? How would you like to use the service? What content would be helpful to your user groups or students? How would they like to interact with South Leeds Community Radio on the internet - or when it's on the radio? Do you need own-language material? Can South Leeds Community Radio help you with ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) or other classes? Would your youth project like to produce, record or DJ a music programme?
We want to respond to everyone in the area, so just get in touch.
