One of WOBC’s new shows this semester is OB Teen Radio, a program recorded and produced at The Backspace at The Bridge, Oberlin’s community technology center. During the week, middle school and high school students record their show, which airs on Mondays 6:30-7:00pm. Students DJ collaboratively, record station IDs, and record original vocal recordings over a favorite song instrumental. The show is a forum for the youth of Oberlin to share new music, opinions, pertinent news, school events and humor.
Check out the back episodes of OB Teen Radio, below, and be sure to tune in Mondays at 6:30!
