    Sprouts: Radio From the Grassroots is a 29-minute weekly
    program coordinated out of the Pacifica Affiliates office, dedicated to
    showcasing radio content produced at community radio stations and
    independent production groups. Sprouts celebrates grassroots
    voices and is renowned for bringing diverse topics to national and
    international audiences. It is an open door for grassroots radio
    producers who wish to easily get widespread attention for a particular
    production, story, or issue.


    Participating producers are provided with Sprouts Production Instructions,
    including the introduction and closing script and music, as well as
    assistance, if needed. A variety of topics and styles are acceptable,
    from mini-documentaries, to cultural themes, to breaking issues of
    national importance. Radio producers are encouraged to send us local
    stories that have national relevance and are presented in a way that a
    national audience can appreciate.


    Sprouts is distributed by Pacifica Radio and is free of
    charge to all radio stations. It is aired regularly by 40-50 radio
    station in the United States, Canada, and Europe. The program is also
    aired by many other stations on an irregular basis, depending upon the
    topic.


    Contributing a production to Sprouts is an excellent way to
    bring a worthwhile production piece to a wider audience and to let
    people know about great production and reporting in grassroots radio. It
    is an excellent way to get an important story or issue to a wide
    audience.
