News Director Sophie Hess and I are teaching the community radio exco this semester. For this project, we asked members of the exco to collect audio in a 24 hour time period and produce a 3-5 minute narrative piece with it.
We were inspired by Radio Diaries, a project that gives people tape recorders to document their everyday lives – they call it “citizen journalism.”
Check this out! It’s the original draft of a transmission line map for KOCN, the first established radio station at Oberlin. It would later become known as WOBC when call-letter standards changed! This drawing was penned in 1949, back when a small committee of students was writing up plans to submit to the college and the FCC. Below is a picture of first KOCN engineer Bill Thurber, station manager Bob Chamberlain, and Bob Stark putting up KOCN transmission wires in 1950.
