WRBC Gives Tours Of The Station To Eager Minds
April 4th, 2012 • Uncategorized
Over the past weeks, the station welcomed local students and the Lisbon Boy Scout troop 109 to Bates for official tours of WRBC. Here at WRBC, we understand that radio is top notch, but It is even more amazing to see youngins agreeing!
Two students from the local area came by last Thursday to better understand the inner workings of our grand ol? station in order to explore future careers in broadcasting and journalism. With expanses of CDs, these students were blown away by the possibilities of radio communication.
Tuesday a troop of 30 boy scouts from Lisbon came by in the hopes of learning about the technical aspect of radio in order to gain a merit badge. WRBC?s own Technical Director Alfie was on sight to lay his extensive knowledge on the troop, covering everything from A to Z and something about the electromagnetic spectrum (all things that left WRBC?s own Publicity Director a.k.a. myself baffled and slightly embarrassed by my own lack of knowledge). It was a truly awesome experience to see engagement and appreciation for our beloved, yet understated, mode of communication.
At WRBC, our goals are not just simply concerts. Our pride and joy is our self-run station with the power to broadcast ideas, news and great music to the masses. With a tye-dyed t-shirt in hand given to me by the appreciative troop, I left the tour feeling inspired by our own ability to connect, not just through our radio tower, but with outreach and a connection to our college and the community abound.
If anybody is, or knows of any organization, that would like to tour the station to learn more about radio, contact Alex Fiorille at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to tour. We hope to inspire you as much as you all inspire us!
Peace, love, WRBC
