Last week, the Youth Media students learned about some good interviewing techniques before going out and recording tape for their Sonic IDs. After conducting interviews around town, the students came back with impressive content to edit for their first assignments. The students also took a tour of Marfa Public Radio's studios and recorded their own legal IDs for air!

Joel, Hanna and Julio are currently transcribing their audio in preparation for their next step – editing on Reaper.

Last night, KRTS Youth Media celebrated a successful end-of-season listening party at the Marfa Book Company, where we played student-reported pieces for members of the general public. After a long semester of hard work and diligence, our youth reporters have put together a set of polished radio stories, and we couldn't be more proud of their accomplishments!

After listening to the pieces, audience members asked questions in an informal Q&A setting.

Listening party 2

Stay tuned over the next few weeks as we bring you more updates on the stories. Since KRTS Youth Media is a PBS Student Reporting Lab, some of our student reporters will get to witness their pieces published on PBS and aired on Marfa Public Radio, KRTS 93.5 FM.

Many thanks to the many members of our community who pitched in to make these stories happen. The students couldn't have finished without your help!

KRTS Youth Media has entered the final stages of radio-making: with just a few more weeks to go, Co-Coordinators Sally Beauvais and Mia Warren have spent a lot of time in the classroom during the month of April.

Our students are all at different stages right now -- some are almost finished writing and revising their scripts, while others are still trying to schedule last-minute interviews to bolster their stories. The good news is that all of our student reporters are done transcribing the tape they've collected over the past few months.

We've been using a free program called OTranscribe, which makes the transcription process a lot less painful.

Since there's still a good deal of work to be done, we've rescheduled the date of our final listening party for Wednesday, May 27th at the Marfa Book Company. If you're in town, don't miss it!

Editing, editing, editing: Any reporter will know that a good radio story requires some careful editing. Our students took to the computer lab today to upload their clips and begin the editing process. We've been using Reaper, a free audio editing software.

Computer Lab


At this stage in KRTS Youth Media, our reporters will be spending a good deal of time in the computer lab, sorting through their audio and putting together the pieces of their stories. We're shooting for a due date in late April, since May tends to be a busy time of year for Marfa High School.

To conclude, we'll host a listening party on May 8th, where students, friends and family can hear the final products.
