I undertook a radio interview with Katherine at BCB Radio today, in which we discussed the financial hardship facing working musicians. This will be broadcast on Friday morning between 11am and 12pm with presenter Ian Forward. Bradford Community Broadcasting (BCB) is a volunteer-led, community organisation that uses engagement with Community Radio as a tool for personal development, community empowerment and social change.
BCB provides the Community Radio station for Bradford and has successfully worked at the heart of communities for 25 years, supporting local people to be active in their community, the city, and to have a voice in the media.
The station has over 200 active volunteers from Bradford’s diverse communities, mostly serving as volunteer broadcasters, or volunteer station managers supporting the work of others. BCB has a small staff team that offers training and support to volunteers. We particularly engage people from marginalised or disadvantaged communities e.g. older people, refugees, women, LGBTQ community, mental health service users, people in recovery, excluded young people, communities on outlying estates, people encountering poverty, BAME communities, carers, people with disabilities etc.
