Converge Radio is proud to announce a new radio program focused on Western Wisconsin high school students – Rock And Roll Homeroom.
The show will air on Saturdays from 10am to noon and will have a unique lineup for hosting.
Every Tuesday at 5pm, area high school students will be invited to the Converge Radio studio to work with producers to record an episode, learn the basics of radio production, and develop promos for their own episode which will then air on Saturday.
Converge Radio station manager Scott Morfitt is excited for the new opportunity for young people: “My own passion for radio was built at a young age; it’s unbelievably exciting to get to create this space for area high school students to learn more about the craft we all love so very much.”
Converge is currently seeking sponsors willing to partner with the station to help make the program sustainable, as these recording and training sessions will be free of charge to students wishing to participate.
To get involved with Rock and Roll Homeroom at Converge, students will simply need to apply. Parents will then be sent a release form.
Following the application process, a recording session with the student will be scheduled for a Tuesday at 5pm. Students who live throughout Converge Radio’s seven- county broadcast region are encouraged to sign up.
The show will run throughout summer, so students wishing to host over their break are in luck. Morfitt says, “At Converge Radio, our team works to produce high quality radio 52 weeks a year, Rock and Roll Homeroom will be no different. We are also open to student hosts who are visiting the region over the summer.”
