Tapestry of the Commons Radio Programs

For Radio Stations

Want to help start the Commons Conversation in Your Community? Here's one way – get your local radio station to play the Tapestry of the Commons Radio Program.

Our new radio project is available for you to use on radio stations or for other educational use. The spots are 2 minutes each. You can listen online, download the MP3 files, and read the scripts.

To help us get these programs on the air, contact your station's general manager or program director, or the host of a show you think would be interested. Ask them to go to the Tapestry of the Commons website where they can download the programs. Radio stations do this for many shows they air. Or if you want to hand deliver a copy to your station, download the files and create a CD yourself. If you cannot download and would like us to send you a CD to take to your radio station, contact Nancy Price. Public, community, college, or commercial stations are welcome to use these shows for free, as long as the play them in their unedited form.

These first 10 programs are the start of what we hope will be a much larger radio project. But your feedback is vital. So please, let us know what you think of the programs: is your station playing them, do you like them, how we can improve? And let us know who you are so we can let you know when the next programs are ready to air.
