This chapter discusses the nature of participatory research by giving a case study of KCC Live, a volunteer youth-led community radio station in Knowsley, UK. It talks about the co-production of audio artefacts and illustrates how the young participants change the way scholars approached the term ‘participatory’. In addition, the chapter details how the methods evolved within the field, owing to the participatory design of the project. It problematises the alleged emancipatory potential of participatory research and, in detailing the co-production of audio artefacts in this project, argues that the meaning of ‘participatory’ in participatory research should be determined in communication with study participants. Only then can research be considered truly participatory.

Keywords:   participatory research, KCC Live, co-production, young participants, audio artefacts, communication
