WYC Radio publishes radio stories and audio works made by students at Westbury Youth Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa. twitter.com/WYCRadio WYC Radio, the Radio Programme of Westbury Youth Centre, produces radio reportages, podcasts and audio works from Westbury and wider Johannesburg. If you commit you’ll learn both the technical and expressional skills needed in radio work: the use of field recorders, studio equipment and editing software hand in hand with sound design skills and the basics of radio journalism. WYC Radio brings in surviving stories, hopeful stories, hard but not scandalised stories, views, wisdom, challenges, awareness, funny stuff, encouragement, non-googlable history, questions, humor, paths of life, art, challenges, legacies, all these in order to inspire people and to bring up issues that we, young WYC Radio reporters and audio enthusiasts wish to bring up. In high quality audio work. In order to take the public speech of our communities in our own hands and to showcase the rich ways of field work radio production often forgotten in the busy and studio-centered radio world. WYC Radio can also entail deeper sound engineering work, e.g audio ID’s and radio adverts for interested, advanced students. You’ll find these kind of works done so far by the tags of #ID or #advert. Who do we work with? From the perspective of contacts and cooperation, radio professionals come to Westbury Youth Centre and WYC Radio students visit radio organisations and radio stations. Our key partner in Jozi is a renowned community radio station Eldos FM 87.6. WYC Radio students' top stories and top entire talk shows are frequently broadcasted on Eldos FM. Dankie ma se kind for great cooperation, Bevelyn & co! Awe, any other radio station in Jozi, if you want to jump on this young revolutionary radio train, please let us know. Our small devoted team at the Die Kaas se Stasie station is open to all suggestions. Our international partners include e.g. various educational institutions in Helsinki, Finland (both upper secondary and university level radio schools), a radio station called Kaupunkiradio as well as many independent musicians. How is it done? All our studio equipment (microphones, mixing console, connectors) as well all the digital fieldwork recording equipment (mostly Zooms) are donations from radio partners of Westbury Youth Centre: mostly Finnish musicians, radio stations and sound engineering professionals. We edit our work with free professional quality sound editing software: Studio One Free. The podcasting work is done with free professional quality studio software: Radio DJ and Audacity. The software used in WYC Radio are chosen based on their quality and free accessibility. Who is doing WYC Radio? The passionate students. From the facilitating perspective WYC Radio was initiated and established during the period of September 2014 June 2015 by two Finnish teachers, Matias Harju and Kaisa Osola. Starting from July 2015 they operate as minor fundraisers and international supporters of the programme from Helsinki, Finland. WYC Radio is now proudly lead by a tree-membered team of Martin Bouwers, Chellon Palmer and James Seetelo. Martin Bouwers and Chellon Palmer are former students of the programme. James Seetelo works as the Social Media facilitator of WYC. Many of the 2014–2015 students are still firmly around and operate their podcast shows and reportages in our very own working space at Westbury Youth Centre: WYC Sound Hub a.k.a. Die Kaas se Stasie. A new intake of students will start in August/September 2015. Follow the details at WYC Radio Twitter and WYC Facebook: facebook.com/WestburyYouthCentre. * Sounds fancy? There’s practically no budget allocated for running WYC Radio.
