This is a one-off programme that requires a bit of extra planning.

If you have the time, why not consider some of these ideas:


  • Dedicating a whole programme to one particular issue will draw your listeners’ attention to it

  • By organising events for your community, you are building your station’s reputation and gaining trust

  • Special programmes outside your normal schedule add variety and interest to your airwaves


  • Consider what topics and events would be interesting to and benefit your listeners

  • To save you time and money, look for local organisations to partner with

  • For example, ask a health NGO or the local school if they’re willing to organise a hand washing event if you provide the publicity

  • Or negotiate with the local community hall to provide the venue for your debate
