Next week, KGNU community radio in Boulder (88.5 FM) is hosting a three-day workshop for kids aged twelve to nineteen, in which they'll be able to be schooled on the ins and outs of radio, from learning how to be on the air to how to edit audio to field recording to producing news features. At the end of the workshop, which runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday July 20, through Wednesday, July 22, the youngsters will be elligible to use station space and become volunteer jocks. Now why wasn't there something like this when we were kids? Surely we would've conviced our folks to pony up $110 (which is what this workshop costs) for a crash course like this.
