Abstract
Community broadcaster (and the public broadcaster) has emerged as an embodiment of the concept of democratization of broadcasting. It is also the animating spirit of the establishment of DRR Community Radio of 107.7 Fm. The Fm radio incorporated in Juwono Village, Sub-district of Dukun, District of Magelang, Central Java is Merapi area of danger. At first, the radio was established as part of the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), a program under Karina KAS in June 2006 post eruption of Merapi. The hope, the community radio will be able to meet the needs of the latest information related to the condition of Merapi. During its development, there are several obstacles that make the radio not completely a community radio, and finally have a vacuum period after the 2010 eruption of Mount Merapi. In addition to the damage to equipment, some of the constraints faced by society is the very strong culture of patron and regulation that is difficult to meet.
