We produced a ‘zine’ (small homemade magazine), and I am glad to show you the first copy of the Grassroots Media Zine”(GMZ).

The first Issue isA Media Space for Cultural Exchange:Exploring Community Radio in the United States”.

The author is Mugiko Nishikawa, a host of “Harukana Show” and a professor of cultural anthropology, at Konan University, Kobe, Japan. The editor is Thomas Garza, engineer of “Harukana Show” and also a host of “Triple R”, and “the 11th Indian”, from WRFU-LP, and the director of PACA(Preservation and Conservation Association of Champaign County).

Through Mugiko’s research in community activities in Hammersmith, London– at present and the ones that took place in Notting Hill in the 1960s — Mugiko learned that “media” was very important for grassroots activities, and she got the chance to put the idea of “grassroots media” into practice through her connection with the community radio station in the US.

“In this zine I wrote about my media activities and also, thanks to interactions I’ve had with members of the radio show, I was able to include some discussion of the possibilities of hyper-local media.  My radio partners were also helpful to support me so that I could write in English and put together this booklet.” by Mugiko
