Next generation of radio stars!

August 18, 2008

I’m a little late in posting this to The Sixth Square, but on Friday, Alex Schmidt did a quick story about a program headed up by the Asian Arts Initiative:

Chinatown Youth Radio Philadelphia (ChYRP) is an intensive, 3-week summer experience for high school students to create a blog and podcast featuring radio stories of Philadelphia Chinatown. During the course of this summer pilot program, youth learned the skills involved in creating a radio story, engaging community members, and the new media technology involved in radio podcasting.

Her story includes some cuts from the work done by the youth radio stars.  Unfortunately, the listening party to celebrate their work came and went on Friday evening and I can’t seem to find any links to their stories or podcasts.  Hopefully those are available or will be available soon.  If I find them (or if someone can post the links in the comments) I’ll be sure to share them.
