Y57 Media is a weekly one-hour radio show that broadcasts live every Tuesday evening from 7-8 PM. Our show is community-focused and youth-driven, and we feature local music, news, and events every week. We can also be found on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
Our home is at Vancouver Co-op Radio located in the heart of the Downtown East Side of Vancouver on unceded Coast Salish Territories. Each week, Co-op Radio provides access to community space, training and equipment for 300+ volunteers who produce 140 hours of original programming, in over 10 languages. As a member of a cooperative model, we promote equal opportunity and participation all while providing support for underrepresented voices in the mainstream media with a strong community focus. The radio actively works to reduce barriers to ensure accessibility and full participation of all the communities they serve. They value and support skill-sharing through learning, sharing and teaching in order to encourage growth within the station and throughout the broader community.
