Tell me about a socio-cultural radio station?

The objective of a commercial radio is to make profit through revenue from advertisements and publicity, and/or to support a money-making commercial operation.

A socio- cultural radio has a mission. In our case, it is

  • To improve, promote and encourage intercultural understanding and collaboration through educational, cultural, social, artistic and creative activities, including, but not limited to, the use of cultural radio as the voice of the community.

Also, the style is quite different: a socio- cultural radio is independent from commercial pressures and can experiment more with a wider range of programmes.
