<p>Signature Programmes: Arul Neram, Inniki Topic. Community Participation: The CRS works on a system in which it carries not only the voice of the common people but also the opinion of experts. The programmes therefore have a component in which part of the recording is done outdoors which takes into account the views of local people. The other component of the programme involves recordings done in the studio for which people from different walks of life are invited. Innovations in Format: The PSGCR staff records people&rsquo;s questions on various issues in and around Coimbatore. These questions are then put to representatives of different services by inviting them to the studios. The content that is thus developed makes for unique and interactive programmes which provide answers to people&rsquo;s queries.</p>

<p>Funding and Partnerships The PSG and Sonsa Charities managements ensure sustainability for the radio station through collaborations and tie-ups with organisations like CEMCA, TANSACS and REACH, Chennai. The CRS also plans to get itself empanelled with the DAVP for getting commercial revenue.</p>

<p>A community radio programme is successful only with the participation of the local community and that too when it is provided in a palatable manner. People look for programmes that are useful in their daily lives and want programmes to be down-to-earth.<br />Almost all the listeners feel that the PSGCR&rsquo;s programmes are relevant to their daily lives but the transmission power must be increased so that listening is made possible over mobile and also without the special antenna.<br />PSGCR has reached the unreached in the tribal village of Kobaneri near Coimbatore. Free admission, hostel accommodation and counselling were made available for five tribal girls in Coimbatore colleges. PSGCR also arranges free blood donation in the community during life-saving emergencies.</p>
