It’s mixdown time at Marfa Public Radio; today was our final workshop of the second season of the KRTS Youth Media Project! Our students are still putting the final touches on their pieces in preparation for our Listening Party this Friday, May 16 at the Highland Annex in Marfa. The event begins at 7:00 pm, and is free and open to the public.

So far, final touches have included music selection, ambient sound, clip fades and volume levels. Our students' stories range in topic from high school friendships to Marfa ghost stories, tourism in Marfa to water scarcity in West Texas. They have truly taken their pieces from the brainstorming phase all the way through to the final edits, and we are really excited about the results! Stay tuned - the final audio/video presentations will be posted on our blog ASAP.
