Podcast #263 – Broadcasting High School Radio through Wildfires and a Pandemic

With wildfires raging up and down the west coast of the United States amid the coronavirus pandemic, many radio stations are facing different types of challenges than a year ago. Vacaville Christian Schools’ radio station KVCB-LP (aka VCS Radio) is in a community that was hit hard by a wild fire in August 2020. When a nearby commercial radio station was knocked off the air, middle school/high school station KVCB-LP stepped up to provide emergency broadcasting.

Conservatory Education Director Ralph Martin leads the radio station and managed the station’s response during this crisis. Martin is our guest this week and shares with us the work being done at KVCB-LP during not only an extended period of distance learning for students, but also during a local emergency. Martin also manages the school’s music program and is philosophical and upbeat about the importance of embracing new and creative ways to teach, perform, and broadcast, especially when faced with unique challenges.
