In August 2017, the Powell River Public Library hosted their first Radio 101camp for teens. During the four day camp Library teen services coordinator, Megan Cole and journalist Carrie Swiggum worked with eight campers to create radio documentaries. The first day of the camp was spent learning about radio and listening to other radio documentaries, and then the groups split into two and started working on their own radio pieces. The groups learned how to build and plan a story, how to use digital recorders, how to edit audio and how to do interviews. The final result were two radiodocumentaries about the Powell River Public Library, but they had different approaches. The journalists for the Radio 101 camp were Kieren Hollmann-Prichard, Tyler Koopman-Gough, Liam Gottfried, Elijah Hueston, Hannah Krausz, Phoenix Kamon, Gabe Dickson, and Ava Houle.
The Radio 101 Camp’s first documentary, Library Is Heart Of Community, will air Wednesday mornings at 10am on RAD DOCS , CJMP’s Radio Documentary Show. Make sure to tune in!
Last Thursday (June 6, 2013) was the second installment of the fabulous new program On-Air Book Club at CJMP, 90.1FM in Powell River. The one-hour program has its own blog at http://onairbookclub.wordpress.com
The show airs live at 8pm on the first Thursday of the month, except July and August. It is rebroadcast in the same time slot throughout the rest of the month. If you have any suggestions for a special one-off on the third Thursdays, however, let these folks know about it at onairbookclub”at”gmail.com. The club consists of ten avid readers with diverse interests and backgrounds, who discuss works of fiction and literary non-fiction. The list of books to be covered – so you can read along and share in the lively, laughter-filled discussion– is at http://onairbookclub.wordpress.com/reading-list-1/ This summer, crack the reading list books and share in the fun!
