June is “The World of Radio” month at the Los Angeles Children’s Museum. Disc jockeys from 11 local radio stations will be at the microphones at the museum’s Lou Adler Recording Studio and talk to kids about broadcasting. It’s a chance for children who think they might want to be radio announcers and disc jockeys to ask questions about the profession as well as to just meet the people behind the voices they have been hearing.
Today from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., KZLA’s Jim Brady will do a live remote from the museum, encouraging listeners to call in to ask questions of children on the air. From 1-2:30 p.m., KDAY’s Russ Parr will take over; KMPC’s Guy Kemp from 3-4:30 p.m.; and on Sunday, KACE’s Pam Wells from 3-4:30 p.m.
Children should sign up for the session when they enter the museum as each workshop is limited to seven participants. The disc jockeys will spend part of the session answering questions, encouraging interviews and letting children behind the microphone and get hands-on experience at the engineering controls. The KXLY session is the only live broadcast scheduled during the month but all the other workshops will be “broadcast” throughout the museum. Parents can look into the studio from behind large glass windows.
