  • It was an enjoyable and informative day. Listening to some of the program presenters made it easy to understand what is involved and how much time it takes to present a regular radio show. Andrew and Sharon were fantastic hosts and clearly do a lot of work keeping the station alive. I'm looking forward to getting more involved with the station.
  • It was a fun, relaxed environment, that not only taught us what goes into producing and hosting a radio program, but also encouraged and excited us with the very real possibility of starting our own show.
