Teens to produce own radio show

June 15, 2012 by  

Valley teens who are interested in the medium of radio can attend a podcasting camp this summer geared towards this profession.

Teens aged 11 – 17 will produce their own radio show by writing, recording, editing, producing, and promoting their broadcast.

Teen Radio Temecula will be available around the world through iTunes and the camp will give kids the opportunity of a lifetime by letting them bring their imaginations alive in a medium which combines the radio, a more longstanding form of communication, with the modern aspects of the Internet.

The show will cover teen issues, opinions, hobbies, and jokes. A typical session covered a movie review, sports, and a restaurant review, including one kid’s food favorites, as well as promotion of the city of Temecula and its community programs.

The camp will be run by instructors Tony Moramarco, an advocate of the arts, and Jeff Waddleton, a former disc jockey, and will be held at Big Giant Media Studio, 27710 Jefferson Ave. #205 in Temecula. Teen Radio Temecula began their first session in January of this year and Moramarco’s goal is to try to fill the gap in creativity left in schools due to budget cuts.

Registration forms are available online at the city of Temecula website. Many cities use flyer printing as a way to get their message out to residents. Camp dates are July 9 – July 13, from 9:00 am — 12:00 pm. Interested teens are urged to hurry, as space is limited. The cost of the camp is $105 for the week with a $20 activity fee due to the instructor on the first day. For more information call (951) 757-0764.
