Boise Community Radio ( BCR ), is a group of local volunteers, who believe that it is vitally important for residents of the Treasure Valley to have access to a more democratic form of radio programming one that better reflects the character of our community. We are currently without a radio alternative that is responsive to community concerns, emphasizing locally programmed content.BCR will provide listeners with a delicious variety of music, while engendering true representation in the discussion of local issues. Programming will be a result of choices made by and for members of our community. By giving residents of our area a public voice, BCR seeks to reincorporate citizen advocacy and community interest in the civic decision-making process.Boise Community Radio's programming priorities will be based on principles of public interest and musical diversity. They will be governed by local input and feedback gathered from various segments of the community regarded as citizen and organizational constituents heretofore underrepresented in existing commercial and public radio broadcasts in the region. Additionally, BCR will continually strive to provide a performance platform for the creative skills of local musicians and verbal artists.Boise Community Radio will provide an educational media clearinghouse in areas of public interest for the distribution of news, events education, issues reporting, and other information impacting the community, not reported or not fully reported in the Treasure Valley.BCR will act as a conduit to public affairs organizers seeking to make available information about community services and other activities serving the welfare of the community.
