Spring 2013 DJ Training Class

DJ at KRCC

Become a volunteer DJ for KRCC!

KRCC will offer its next volunteer DJ training class to the community starting February 16th, 2013. (It’s a 6 week course). If you love music and would like to turn that into a labor of love at your favorite public radio station, then submit your applications by February 8th, 2013. Applications can be downloaded HERE or picked up in person at our studios at 912 N. Weber.

Note on logistics: The classes happen on Sautrday mornings from 10am until Noonish. A session or two will be on your own, where you sign up for production time and create mock shows.
