WWOZ is hosting six college interns this summer. These highly motivated young people are: Ishan Allen of Antioch College; James Bullard of Ball State University; Olivia Broslawsky and Benjamin Russell of Tulane University; Candace Crawford and Lily Wasserman of Ithaca College. Each reached out to WWOZ over the past 10 months.
The interns are acquiring hands-on experience in recording interviews, in editing, in producing underwriting, and in public-service announcements. On June 17,18 and 19 they attended a workshop led by Matthew Schilling, the executive director of New Orleans Youth Sound Experience (NOYSE). The interns learned about live and in-studio sound recording and built microphones in these fun and intensive sessions.
The interns’ major project is a multimedia presentation that will derive from interviews with musicians and educators. The presentation will explore music lovers’ perceptions of what jazz is in New Orleans.
