OBR.FM announces Radio Camp! February 24th-March 9th
After a little over a year of broadcasting independent media for and by the 99%, OBR.FM kicks off its two week “Radio Camp” with a meet and greet at its studio at 9 Hamilton place in Boston, Massachusetts at 7pm Saturday February 23rd, and all are welcome. Come see our studio, meet our radio hosts and enjoy some indy music, thought and media then spend some time with us as we go to RADIO CAMP!
What is “Radio Camp”? It is an opportunity for sharing and learning about the production of indy media through our radio station. In this two week period we plan to immerse ourselves in all the facets of OBR’s operations, from the ins and outs of broadcasting a live program to the behind the scenes work of marketing, fund-raising, social networking, podcasting, and engineering.
All of OBR’s events, meetings and activities are open to the public and we urge you to join in, we’ll be sending out reminders on Facebook and Twitter of Radio Camp activities. Check out the schedule below and note special events marked with an ** geared to the general public looking to delve into indy media.
Contact us if you have any questions or ideas for this exciting period: firstname.lastname@example.org
See you @ camp!
