The Loma Vista 4-H club of Ventura, part of the University of California’s outreach program, spent 4 weeks at the CAPS Media’s KPPQ-LP Ventura Radio Station. Actively engaged in the creative radio production classes the young DJs learned about community radio and developed skills to produce entertaining and informative podcasts and radio shows. The enthusiastic students, ages 11 to 16, explored a variety of topics including worldwide cultures, comic book characters, autism and Women Athletes such as Serena Williams. All the students quickly mastered the basics of radio production and plan to continue their shows throughout the year bringing more youth radio to KPPQ-LP Ventura.
