Radio Camp 2012 – Day 15 – What’s a Radio?

[dmalbum path=”/wp-content/uploads/dm-albums/SDA 2012 – Day 15/”/]

This is RADIO WEEK – we’re going to do a whole lot of learning and fun activities around what radio actually is! We went back to the studio today to talk about what we know so far: we certainly know how to use microphones well, as we all demonstrated beautifully. We also know about tuning a radio, different platforms radio can come on (digital, satellite, AM/FM), and a lot more about being in an actual broadcast studio now that we’ve been to Radio Camp!

Tomorrow, we’ll be interviewing Larry Berger, host of The Saturday Light Brigade, so today we came up with a few questions that we want to ask. Our questions were FANTASTIC. We are curious about how he got started, how the studio was built and how it works, what being a DJ (and executive director of a non-profit radio station) is like, how content is chosen, and much more. We can’t wait to ask Mr. Larry all these questions ourselves!

In the meantime, here are a few practice takes of some questions:
