This paper describes a case study on the use of community-based low powered FM radio that has been undertaken in Uganda as part of the work of the Commonwealth of Learning. It describes a media solution that employs low-powered FM radio as an effective method of delivering education and information to a rural community. It also describes the inhibitors to proliferation of community radio stations and reflects on the future directions for the use of radio as a delivery system for education.
