In this OTC; an interview with Andrea by Rai Radio 3 in Italy on the recent emergency FM Setup in Cuddalore that we had the chance and honor to give a hand in setting up. You will hear about how the RAS adapted its schedule not overlap with the yearly Youth Center Christmas Fair, and how units contribute products as well (unlike our architects-old story) to the many requests, and an update on our Fund Drive effort, where we have already begun purchasing some of the essential equipment and we still have a way to go in order to achieve our target 850,000 or 13,000 US $
More on Cuddalore FM: This event received a lot of attention and coverage in newspapers, magazines, regional and national Indian TV channels and also abroad… yesterday the Italian National Cultural channel (RADIO 3) has dedicated a 7 minutes segment to the emergency radio station set up in Cuddalore. http://www.radio.rai.it/podcast/A46040581.mp3
Fund Drive: We have already begun to purchase needed equipment; a new mixing table has been purchased, a pair of professional headphones have arrived and a new computer! The work load in general is growing at the Auroville Radio. The above situation further highlighted the need for an enlarged and committed radio team, which can only happen by providing a basic support for its members.
