In March 2007 Woman on Air Helga Neumayer visited Southall, a mainly Punjabi neighbourhood in West-London, where the Punjabi Centre runs Desi-Radio-Station, a 24 hour community radio.

“We all have stories to tell!” says coordinator Mrs. Amarjit about the motivation of the people who create those radio-shows. Mainly women are the volunteer pillars of the radio, how come? “We are here to give them confidence!” says Mr. Manjinder, trainer and presenter. And Mrs. Kaur, a trainee at that time, has no doubt about the musical preferences: “Bhangra is the soul of the Punjabi community. As soon as the drum beats, everyone gets up!”.
