On May 29, 2009 the Full Circle Crew brought live radio to Antioch. Our first live remote broadcast happened at Live Oak High School, which is a continuation school for students in need of help to graduate on time.
Our broadcast featured student hosts interviewing teachers, college counselors and other students. We also featured commentaries from the students who talked about their struggles in graduating. This broadcast was executive produced by me, Full Circle Technical Director Freewillin Franklin, who was a graduate of Live Oak, Class of 1989.
I thought is was great to put together this program and go back to my highschool and be able to give back to my community. It was cool to finally realize that teaching kids about radio is hella fun and was a good experience in putting together a remote production.
It was amazing to hear the students commentaries and their struggles as they were so similar to my own. Here are the three commentaries that were produced for the show.
