The programming to be broadcast on Portsmouth Community Radio will be primarily locally produced and a direct reflection of the diversity found within the Greater Portsmouth community, while at the same time meeting the station's educational goals. An emphasis will be placed on educational and cultural programs utilizing the rich resources and talents available within the greater Portsmouth community.
Portsmouth Community Radio will meet its educational mission in a number of different ways. By making its programming open to members of the community and providing guidance and instruction on technical and other broadcasting matters, the station will create educational opportunities for young and old through direct participation in the creation of programming. In particular, it will dedicate air time for elementary, middle and high school age children to develop their own programming aimed at their respective age groups. The programs produced by the school children will in many cases be linked to the school curriculum.
Additional programming will include programs on local history, local news, broadcasting civic meetings, broadcasting from local performance art and music venues, health information, call-in talk shows, political news, childrens programming, poetry readings, talent shows, radio dramas, environmental news, literature discussions, and science topics.
Programming will be produced to educate the community about itself through local history programming, features on civics and civic affairs and by inviting local public organizations and non-profit groups into the studio to talk about their activities and role in the community. In the areas of music, literature, and the arts, local artists and their work will be highlighted.
Programming will also be produced that will instruct and inform listeners about the world of science, health, music, literature, and the arts. Experts from the many surrounding educational institutions and cultural organizations will be participating to support this programming. Additional offerings will include locally produced news programs, radio drama productions, poetry and story readings, and live drama and music from local venues. Finally, prerecorded alternative music programming will expose listeners to a world of music not commonly heard on the radio airwaves.
