Default Radio Talk Show Publicity

Some of the tactics employed by most anti-immigration groups have been to use the Radio talk shows, I know there are few desi Radio Stations in and around NJ, Can we get some of them to be a platform for us to showcase our issues.....

Exactly and most of their viewership is not the EB folks, it is the general desi crowd and believe me, it is the "opposite of sympathy" they have for us.

Ther US born children have zero sympathy for Indians on H1B. Thus such radio stations maybe airing anti immigrant discussions to please their listeners. I feel Mexicans who have now become US citizens are better supporters of their Mexican folks. Mexicans have big organizations like La Raza and Mexican government too supports its citizen's cause.

How about like a call in radio program, If we can get some of the radio stations to agree on people calling on certain issues, That would certainly increase their viewership (should i say hearingship

Radio thing doesn't cost that much and we can get some sponsors

There's also a new (& good) radio station in Atlanta, GA called Spice Radio. I am skeptical as you ppl as ABCD's/citizens/GC holders do not have willingness to help to be immigrants

Last year some members tried to approach desi channels and radio stations. They were not very responsive, some even demanded money. There will be a post in one of the forums about this problem. No harm in trying this year could be different.

I am sure IV has thoroughly vetted this option. I think the "close the door behind me" mentality holds true for such folks, and it may not bear much fruit to pursue this option.
