ABOUT THE PROGRAM
RadioActive is a youth radio storytelling program created by KUOW / Puget Sound Public Radio 94.9 FM, Seattle’s National Public Radio (NPR) member station. We train the next generation of public radio journalists and empower youth through storytelling. In this fun, rigorous, and hands-on workshop you’ll learn about journalism, audio recording, audio editing, interviewing, writing for broadcast, and speaking on the air. By the end of the program, you’ll create a finished audio story about yourself or the people around you that will be posted on KUOW.org and Puget SoundOff.org.

How did you hear about this program?


RadioActive is a radio workshop where you learn how to tell stories using sound. For this application, we want you to pitch us a story. What touches your heart, inspires you, confuses you, or makes you mad? What do people need to hear about? What do you want to learn?



Stories take lots of different forms. Here’s an example of what we’re looking for:
Who is this story about? – Sarvani Gorthi, a member AWAAZ , the South East Asian singing group at the University of Washington

What did she/he/they do? – She combines Indian and American pop songs into a capella music

Why did she/he/they do that – Because she wants to mix the Indian culture she experiences at home with the American culture she experiences at school.

Why should Seattle listeners care? – Many young people in the Seattle area come from immigrant backgrounds and struggle to bridge the different worlds of home and school. This would tell the important story of how some young people are making sense of these worlds.


Who will you interview? – I would interview Sarvani and another member of AWAAZ about how they fuse the pop songs of India and the US. I would also ask about what it means for them to bridge these two cultures in their own lives.

What sounds would you record? – I would record an upcoming song-writing session for AWAAZ where they listen to pop songs and try to create arrangements that blend the songs together. I would also find past concerts to give examples of the fusion songs they sing.

What else do you want to say about this story? – I’ve already talked to Sarvani - she and the group are excited to share their story.

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN! It’s ok to ask for help or ideas, but the words should be your own. Good luck, have fun, and get excited about producing these stories!
