Radio Club is an afterschool program that provides youth aged 11-14 experience in radio broadcasting. As a partnership with BEACON Afterschool Program,Radio Club pairs up to 6 students with a KZMU DJ and staff to learn all there is to know about Community Radio. Participants will learn everything from the history of the medium to music DJing to live foley and interview technique. The club takes place at KZMU studios atop Rocky Road in Moab, Utah, as well as in public spaces around town. The two week immersive program culminates with a live broadcast / teenage takeover where the club rules the airwaves.
This program combines Technology, Engineering, and Art, three of the five major elements in STE(A)M programming for youth. Kids Radio Camp will provide experience in media, analog and digital production tools, public speaking, writing, storyboarding, and, short range planning; all building blocks for career contemplation.
