Roland Park Middle School Tours WLOY

September 24th, 2015 by Allison Langley

RPMWLOY This past Monday and Tuesday, WLOY had the pleasure of hosting 60 eighth graders, along with some teachers and parents, from Roland Park Middle School. Students spent about an hour touring the station, learning about the operations, and watching DJs in action. They learned about the equipment and functions of each recording and production studio, asked lots of questions about sound dampening panels on the walls and ceilings, and tried to fathom how we got 10,000 CDs and 7,000 LPs in that small space. The students got to meet and talk to some pretty cool DJ’s while they were on the air!

These students are currently involved in Roland Park’s theater class. They are currently writing radio plays and the best ones will be selected by their teacher to record and produce them at WLOY. They will be back in October to share their plays with everyone…so be sure to tune in!! We have been fortunate enough to collaborate with Roland Park Middle on this project for 4 years. There have been some very creative plays written during our time together and we hope to inspire these young kids to be future DJs! Remember to keep an open ear for more of these creative plays in October as details emerge. Thank you, Roland Park Middle School!
