Vancouver Cooperative Radio is a non-commercial, co-operatively-owned, listener-supported, community radio station based in the east end of Vancouver.
Many years ago, I worked with the very dedicated and talented folks who produce a politics and arts show on Saturday mornings called Redeye.
Check out a relatively new program called Common Law Radio, a show dedicated to exploring the legal issues of our time from the perspective of lawyers and participants. You can listen to the program live on the second and fourth Monday of each month by going to Coop Radio’s website:
Common Law Radio’s most recent program tackled child poverty, an issue in British Columbia and Manitoba.
1 in 5 children in British Columbia grow up in households with earnings below the poverty line. This is the headline statistic from the annual child poverty report card released by First Call, BC’s Child and Youth Advocacy Coalition.
Vancouver Cooperative Radio has been producing alternative radio in Vancouver since 1975. It provides a voice to communities who are not represented in the mainstream media. It is community supported, so become a member and listen often.
