Since I was a little boy I remembered AM stations signing on with the National anthem. We at the Michigan School For The Blind had both an FM station and an AM station called WMSB. We’d either sing ourselves or play the national anthem when we went on the air. It was just something you did. During certain days we would broadcast readings of things that happened Today in history.
Besides the history readings we had plays during Christmas and we’d broadcast them. Parents could hear the play as they got close to the campus usually around 2 miles for AM.
Our audio department done a wonderful job mixing the live programming for Live broadcasting and we had off campus listeners who loved our Christmas programming too. It was a tradition every year to have a On Air play. That was until they really tried to make a big deal of the separation of Church and state and sort of discouraged teachers from teaching the Christian religion therefore there was no more official play.
This is part 15 done right or Hobby Broadcasting because I am not sure if the station was compliant or not at that time. But there was a heart felt warmth when the students were able to express themselves live on air to an audience that they’ve organized and put together themselves.
Lets get back to that basic heart warming feeling of creative expression on the Raio.
