TruthBVHP Radio believes TRUTH is an essential
ingredient to community health. Therefor, each radio program will be allowed the
freedom to express the true-life experiences and perspectives of it's producer.
Diversity of OpinionSometimes, important voices are too quiet to be
heard or recognized. This radio project actively strives to give a voice to
divergent perspectives. Opinions will not be controlled by any one
CivilityBVHP Radio believes an epidemic of rudeness
has infected mainstream media, and destroyed rational, thoughtful discussion. On
BVHP Radio, abiding on-air interruptions of on-air guests is a violation of
Non-ViolenceWe believe the secret to non-violence
can be found in the traditions of the people. Neighborliness is a traditional
value here, and a culture of civility is essential to cultivating a culture of
non-violence. That's why simple courtesy is one of the cornerstones of this
RespectWhether or not your target is "able to respond",
personal attacks are unacceptable radio behavior. Hate radio of any kind will
not be tolerated.
CommunicationThe project will promote
communication between producers and listeners through in-person meetings, email,
chat, live on-air phone talk, voice-mail, and web-comments. Shows can respond to
each other on-the-air.
UnityThis project creates a family of radio
producers which cuts across social boundaries. Through this microcosm we can
explore our relationships, and find common ground in spite of our at-times conflicting goals, in an
environment of civility and respect.
UniquenessOur goal is to give
the community something they cannot get anyplace else. Therefor, we discourage
material that can already be heard on existing radio stations.
ExcellenceThis project will promote transformation through
excellence-- in programming, presentation, production, and audio quality--
through training, role-modeling, guidance, competition for air-space, awards,
and technical standards.
