High School Radio Day 2015

4th Annual High School Radio Day is Happening on April 22

Next Wednesday, April 22nd marks the 4th annual High School Radio Day. Inspired by College Radio Day, the event is a celebration of high school radio. So far, 69 stations have signed up to participate in the day (see a list here). On the High School Radio Day website, stations can register for the event, get information about a few high school school radio discussion groups, as well as learn about a new high school radio app.

I feel lucky to have visited a handful of high school radio stations (my most recent trip was to see Bellarmine Prep’s station KBCP in San Jose this week – I’ll post a full report next week) and would love to see more. In honor of High School Radio Day, here are a few of my high school radio station tours:

2009 Tour of WGBK-FM at Glenbrook South High School (Glenview, Illinois) – see more on the WGBK website

2014 Tour of WHHS-FM at Haverford High School (Havertown, Pennsylvania) – see more on the WHHS website

2014 Tour of WLTL-FM at Lyons Township High School (La Grange, Illinois) – see more on the WLTL website

I’ve also visited a few stations located at high schools that can’t really be considered high school radio stations, since the majority of programming is not created by students. Those stations include KCEA-FM at Menlo-Atherton High School (see my field trip here) and community/public radio station KALW-FM at Burton High School in San Francisco (see my field trip here). Both stations have had some student involvement over the years, so they still deserve a mention.
