Created by Anishnabe Videographer Joe Beardy and trainee Darlene Naponse, Aboriginal Radio Waves Part II is the second part of a two part series about community radio.

Aboriginal Radio Waves: Part II, Joe Beardy and Darlene Naponse detail the steps involved in obtaining a station, from procedure of applying for grants, the start up of the station, to radio programming are covered within the video, and respond to community concerns related to funding and autonomy, e.g. does Government pay for the whole package and do they control it?

The highlight of the video is the active involvement of the community and volunteer support. The tape stresses the importance of making these two groups work together to ensure a successful and healthy Broadcast station for the years to come.

The video was made with the understanding that, at the time of its making in 1996, most communities in central and southern Ontario were not sure what community radio is and what kind of impact it will have on their community.
