wysoWYSO Community Voices

In the spring of 2011 WYSO Public Radio launched a training program to teach listeners how to produce radio stories. WYSO helps local people record essays, poems and commentaries. They work with public school teachers who want to bring radio into their classrooms, and they collect oral histories. Projects include Dayton Youth Radio, Veterans Voices, and Women’s Voices from Dayton Correctional Institution. Community Voices is all about getting local voices on the air.
