Apparently the CBC out of Toronto had something with kids on air. I’ll be looking into it due to our CRFC project here in Nanaimo.
This is a great time to mention to everyone we will be doing a national broadcast again in November for #KidsTakeoverDay!
We have never had a youth show but we are currently in talks with our local Girls Rock Camp to make a show. We do summer workshops with the public library program to create station ID's and PSA's.
Thank you to everyone who has responded! I'm looking forward to diving into the links and checking out the great things people are doing at their stations.
CFCR has a weekly program created by a Grade 9 class at a local high school. It’s called Collective Voice, and it’s actually a curriculum class at Aden Bowman Collegiate that started about 7-8 years ago. If you’d like more info, I could forward you to the teacher/organizer of the program.
CICK in Smithers BC has a few examples:
Lightning Guitar Monsters is one of our longer running programs (6 yrs
and over 200 shows) where the youth and his brother started at age 6
We recently started working with the high school drama class to perform
radio drama skits for our live radio theatre show. We also work with
the English class to write skits for radio. You can find examples on
"Radio Theatre Experiment" in the sched.
A few years ago we worked with a middle school who "took over the
airwaves" for about 6 hours of programming. It was great, but due to
the work required by the teachers, we haven't seen it again.
Hey! I've got tons of magical stuff recorded - I ran CFRU's Mobile Studio out of an elementary school teaching radio to grade 3-6 last year for most of the year - some of the episodes are posted at cfrumobile.com but I have some newer episodes that aren't posted yet, with the studetns interviewing our Mayor, our Green Party MPP Mike Schreiner, a local Hurdy Gurdy player - some really good stuff. They came up with all their own questions, did all their own recording/editing and hosting. Pretty rad. Not sure exactly what you're looking for but I have quite a lot!
Thank you again to everyone who has contributed to this thread. There are so many great examples of CC youth radio -- I have a lot of listening and learning to do!
