Radio Workshop Youth Day Show

June 9, 2011 by Kaitlin

…or what I’ve been doing with my life for the past week.

Had a blast interviewing, writing, and editing for the Radio Workshop. Nina, Yumna, and Kondwani were all so helpful and supportive–it was such a fun, collaborative radio experience. Also, editing on Pro Tools is a dream. Annenberg has got to update their editing software.

There were serious, emotional moments too. If you’re not familiar with the history of Youth Day and the Soweto uprising (like I wasn’t before I came here), take a moment and read some of the history.

Then, take a listen to our show.

I love the music we used in the show this week. You can listen to the full versions of the songs below.

Miriam Makeba – Soweto Blues

Hugh Masekela with Malaika – Open the Door

We do a weekly show out of the CRF Cape Town office. If you know people who would be interested, please consider sending them a link to the show or our Facebook page. You can also download the show as a podcast on iTunes for free.
