YOUTH Jam Radio is getting youngsters ready for the weekend with its fortnightly school broadcasts.
The #feelgoodfriday breakfast show was launched at Somerly Primary School last month, which will see the radio station broadcast live between 6am and 9am every two weeks from a school in Perth.
“It involves interacting with the children, teachers and community,” general manager Isaac Mulcrone said.
“It’s about waking up early with a smile, talking to kids and enabling them to learn through fun activities and involves Youth Jam Radio be the positive influence it is named.
“We also provide hot beverages to the kids on cold days.”
The 16-year-old, who started Youth Jam Radio earlier this year, said the broadcast was “a lot of set up” but it was “definitely worth it”.
“We arrived at Somerly Primary at 5am to set up, do off-air sound checks and set everything up,” he said.
“It takes us roughly 40 minutes to set up, which leaves us five minutes to get our on-air team briefed and ready to go.”
As part of the broadcast, students were able to go on air and be radio hosts, the school rock band performed and others were able to showcase their talents.
Forte School of Music Joondalup was also part of the broadcast.
