Rock Radio Camp 2 Sessions for Summer 2011

If you aren’t already dreaming of summer, we know your kids are as they near the end of the academic year. Keep their musical or technological minds inspired by sending them to WYEP’s classroom, er, studio! We meant studio! (It’ll be our secret.)

Enroll your middle school-aged children in one of two day camp sessions, 9am-2pm:
Monday, July 18 – Friday, July 22
Monday, August 8 – Friday, August 12

After you pick them up each day, be sure to ask them how it went and I guarantee you’ll get more than “fine.” They’ll tell you how they met and interviewed people who work in the music industry, listened to lots of different music, recorded the whole experience and learned to edit, etc.

Enrollment tuition is $175 for WYEP members / $200 for non-members. Once application has been submitted and confirmed, payment may be made by credit card over the phone (412-381-9131 × 220) or by check.

Lunch is not included. Participants must bring a brown bag lunch.

Space is limited so sign up soon.

Teen Center A new project of the Education Department

*The Due Date for Applications has been extended. Accepting Applications until November 3rd.*

WYEP is beginning a brand new project centered on youth empowerment. We have noticed that there are a lot of intelligent, passionate teens in this city with strong voices and great talent. We have been wondering though, how those voices can be better projected. We want the Pittsburgh region to hear what our youth have to say about what is important to them.

To honor that vision of the future we have begun a project which will be teen-driven. We are looking for teens who are interested in learning how to project their voices through a variety of media, including radio. But we are not interested in telling those teens what to say. We want teens who would like to develop their leadership skills - who are interested in spending time with the issues that are important to them.

The future of this project is a teen-led organization centered on media creation and advocacy.

If you or a teen you know would like to:
-acquire radio production skills
-learn more about issues which are important to them
-become a spokesperson for youth issues in the Pittsburgh region

Download the Teen Center Application.  (.pdf download)

WYEP is receiving applications until November 3.

Decisions will be made by November 4.

During this first phase participants will be meeting 2 Saturdays a month from 1-4pm at The WYEP Community Broadcast Center from November 2011-June 2012. For a full schedule and/or more information contact alexa@wyep.org.

Mike Canton's Soul Show presents The Soul Train Tribute - Part 2

Based on incredible listener response to a Soul Train Tribute show done last Saturday, The Soul Show host Mike Canton continues his recognition of the late Don Cornelius with even more great afro-funk, Motown and psychedelic soul music from 1971 - 1980.

“Soul Train’s impact on American society was that it mainstreamed a ‘subculture’ in previously unimagined ways,” says The Soul Show host Mike Canton. “Where Motown’s effort was to reach the general audience with a safe, somewhat sanitized approach, Soul Train’s ‘uncut’ music was discovered by a broader society that was both blown away and accepting of this previously unfamiliar subculture.”

Canton’s show will follow a chronological showcase of a different year in music during each 20-minute segment. Canton welcomes listener feedback and calls at 412.381.9900.

February 28, 2012 to February 11, 2016

Presented by 91.3fm WYEP, 90.5 WESA, and Essential Pittsburgh, this event will explore the different faces of bullying. Join Paul Guggenheimer, host of Essential Pittsburgh, as we explore the different faces of bullying, understanding how students get involved in these interactions and what we can do to help.

Scattered through the event will be personal stories from students courtesy of Hear Me, an organization that amplifies kids' voices using media and technology, giving them the power to inspire social change. Christina Hostutler from Outreach Teen & Family Services will talk about the psychology of bullying, helping us to understand what is going on in the minds of our children when they bully and are bullied. Dorothy Devlin, a trainer and consultant of the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program in the Elizabeth Forward Middle School, McKeesport School District, and Chartiers Valley School District will offer up some of our region’s best practices in solving this problem: using face-to-face interaction to restore the humanity of our students. Finally, Debbie Maier Jacknin, Executive Director of The Holocaust Project: Born to Remember will show us how to encourage the students who stand by while bullying happens to engage.

The two closest parking garages are Wood-Allies Garage and Third Avenue Garage.

The event will be held in the George Rowland White Theater at Point Park University

Pittsburgh, PA 15222

Education Seminar: Radio Daze

Return to an era before pictures and video dominated entertainment, when families gathered around their radios after dinner.
Explore the world of the 1930s radio dramas with Paul Guggenheimer, Essential Pittsburgh’s host. Learn about the history and development of the narrative-centric radio programs that brought drama, suspense, horror and comedy to the radio format. Find out how radio dramas paved the way for modern television programming, with soap operas during the day and prime-time dramas at night.
Delight in the first horror anthology, “A Witch’s Tale,” or learn about “The Shadow,” a crime drama that later became the model for comic book heroes. Find out more about the Mercury Theater on Air that brought classic literature to the radio waves, and Fred Allen’s radio comedy show, “Allen’s Alley.”
Radio dramas brought lively characters into family homes and listeners used their imaginations to recreate the story’s universe.
Come to “Radio Daze” on Wednesday, November 14 at 7:30 p.m. in the WYEP Community Broadcast Center. Tickets are $10 for members and $12 for non-members.
