Blue Ox Radio would love to have you on board! We are currently looking for volunteers, both youth and adults, who are interested in creating programming or helping out with the behind the scenes work. Here's just a few ideas:
- Do you have an interest or hobby that others might like to hear about? Create a radio show where you can tell the world! Or better yet, get together with some others who share the same interest and have a weekly on air discussion.
- Enjoy acting? Create some old time radio dramas or comedies!
- Are you good with a computer? You can help others to edit their recordings and get them ready to go on the air.
- Have you been involved in fundraising activities before? We can always use more help with organization and community outreach.
- Are you a writer? Come read your essay, story, or poem on the air!
- Are you a social butterfly? How about bringing one of our digital recorders to an event or doing some on-the-spot interviews?
If you would like to get involved at Blue Ox Radio, please get in touch with us. We have weekly meetings at the Blue Ox Community School that you can come to to share your ideas.
