In the morning we met Rifty, Alfian and Redyson, the producers of Radio Pelangi, at our hotel. They discussed their vision for the radio station and were excited to show us the new studio space in Harapon. We were not sure what to expect but when wefirst walked in we were speechless. It is not a studio but a rented room in a local villagers home. It had bare concrete walls, a tin rusted roof with gapping holes and chickens and roosters running around in the yard. Their antenna was destroyed in a storm, which also shorted out all their electrical and they are now in the “rebuilding stage.” We talked through our budget and timeline but started to have concerns about their ability to launch the pilot by September.
