Best Youth-Made Radio of 2011
One of our favorite January rituals is listening to stories of the past year and selecting which ones will make our annual Best Youth-Made Radio playlist. And with 352 new youth stories added to the PRX catalogue in 2011, we had lots to enjoy! Youth radio is undergoing a renaissance. You heard it here.
GPRX Bullying Stories Project: Meet the Producers
The GBSP Producers
The Generation PRX Bullying Stories Project is full steam ahead. The team of youth producers is hard at work, WNPR’s Catie Talarski is helping guide the stories and (thanks to the Motorola Mobility Empowerment Foundation) each group is enjoying a new recording kit (including a Sony PCM-M10 recorder and an RE-50 mic, for the tech-curious among you) and Hindenburg Journalist audio editing software. Learn more about the team and their story topics over on the GPRX blog.
We’re super delighted to work with all of these talented producers, and to share youth voices on bullying with the entire PRX network in an hour-long special coming in February.
Listen to This: How Sound
We were already big fans of the How Sound podcast, which dives deep into radio stories to give listeners the backstory. But this latest episode is a must-listen for the youth radio crowd: Producer Ian Kathan talks about producing his story on living with Aspergers for his high school class…and getting a standing ovation. WHJE Radio teacher Brian Spilbeler and GPRX Director Jones Franzel weigh in. Subscribed?
