If you’ve heard of HD Radio it was probably in a spot on a major commercial station, not a high school station. KVCB-LP is the exception to that rule, a high school radio station that is likely the first and only low-power FM station to start broadcasting in digital HD Radio.
Ralph Martin is the operations director for the station, owned by Vacaville Christian Schools. He explains how and why KVCB went HD, detailing the challenging trail he had to blaze. He also shares the station’s unique approach to programming and integrating broadcasting into the school’s curriculum.
