We’re having some technical issues with WKMD 90.9 FM in Madisonville. The signal is currently at low power and we’re working to get back up fully. Thanks for your patience.
The WKMS Youth Radio Project seeks to build a relationship with area kids who have an interest in radio. This project includes youth reporting, like Patrick Jones' interview with Murray State Basketball Coach Steve Prohm, or sound collages of local youth events like a behind-the-scenes scoop of Playhouse in the Park's summer camp production of Disney's Cinderella Kids. You'll find book reviews, commentaries, and other things created by kids, featuring their thoughts and voices. Our hope is to create a virtual community for kids that would be an online showcase of what they're doing in school, in the arts, and beyond in a way that is educational and enlightening.This project is destined to grow! If your child is interested in participating, or if you are an educator and have great sound you'd like to share, please send an email to msu.wkms@murraystate.edu.Here's a fun tutorial by Radio Rookies, from New York Public Radio:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYl5ZnwkzmESee more youth oriented programming on WKMS:Poetry Minutes 2012: Journey Stories

Youth Report: Workshops at the Murray Art Guild

Many of the area kids are going back to school this month, but there’s still plenty to do in the community for those looking for extra-curricular activities this fall. WKMS Youth Reporter Austin Cobb attended some classes at the Murray Art Guild, which run year-round. He interviewed his teachers, potter Reid Parrish and craftsman Wyatt Severs, and the guild’s director Debi Danielson and brings us this report.

WKMS Youth Project Volunteer Barbara Cobb coordinated the report and provided photos. Learn more about the Youth Radio Project and how your child can participate by emailing at msu.wkms@murraystate.edu.
