Keys clicked and microphones adjusted as advanced radio students worked together, devoted to one cause: producing Bak MSOA’s very own radio show. The students were in charge of the success of the WBAK radio through all the different components of a segment.

“In the advanced radio class, students produce their own radio segment—writing scripts, producing their own music, and commercials. Everything is original,” Shakendra Moorer, communications teacher, said.

Radio shows were available to students on SoundCloud, a free radio and music app. To broadcast their show on SoundCloud, though, students had to overcome the same stress radio stations experienced every day.

“The most stressing part about radio is the deadlines, in real life stations, they have a day, sometimes less, to put something together. We try to do the same thing which puts us on a tight amount of time to get stuff done,” Harrison Mandell, seventh-grade communications major, said.

Radio benefited students because they learned, creativity, and the skill of working together as a team.

“In radio, [students] are part of a crew. It’s important to work together on communicating to produce a radio show,” Moorer said.

Introduction to Radio was a class on the sixth-grade communications wheel and most students saw it only as a mandatory class. However, advanced radio students saw it as something more.

“What separates radio from other classes is that there isn’t a right or wrong,” Kendall Hendrix, eighth-grade communications major said. “Everyone doesn’t have to be the same exact way. The sky’s our limit!”
