Student radio station KHWS will return to the air on Oct. 19 at 5 p.m., and teachers will have the opportunity to co-host with their students this year.
After science teacher and faculty adviser Nathan Cardin’s broadcast last year received high ratings, KHWS staff decided to invite all teachers to co-host with students.
“Teachers get to share a different side of themselves in those broadcasts, and students really enjoy that,” Cardin said.
Students can listen to a live stream of the station at www.khwsradio.com.
The club’s 39 members were all selected by club leaders Nikta Mansouri ’15, Oliver Sanderson ’15, Sam Schlesinger ’15 and Ethan Weinstein ’15.
Jordan Brown ’16, Tiana Coles ’16 and Mei Mei Tercek ’16, who call themselves “A Couple of Kooks,” are one group of DJs that will broadcast on Sundays at 8 p.m.
“Ultimately we want to try and let our broadcast become more than some songs playing from a playlist,” Coles said.
Club leaders emphasize the importance of keeping the channel fresh by encouraging their broadcasters to play a larger variety of genres of music.
“We are trying to break away from the mold of exclusively alternative rock music,” Weinstein said.
