Much like a train station or airport, a great many things arrive and leave WRBH’s studio each week: There are the hundreds of volunteers who walk in and out producing the wonderful content you here 24/7 on air; the magazines, newspapers, journals, PSA’s, emails and books that somehow appear daily at the station; and the massive amount of recordings that are constantly being created, edited, saved, and archived. Even the producer in the studio changes on a day-to-day basis!
With that in mind… how the heck do we find time to do our housekeeping???
So, after consulting a specialized team of scientists from around the globe, as well as twenty-seven ambassadors from the United Nations, the Dalai Lama, and Donald Trump, we have decided upon a wholly original solution to our problem: BOOK WEEK
Beginning Monday, August 17th through August 21st, we will be giving our volunteers a week off, reaching into the archives, dusting off a few of our favorite recorded books (and possibly other favorite programs!) from over the years and replaying them for you throughout the week.
For our listeners, its an opportunity to revisit some of the fine work that our volunteers have done over the years. For WRBH, this will free up some much-needed time to take care of our computers, studio, and other housekeeping duties. We’ll also have some time to freshen up our stash of promos, ID’s, Audio Postcards (or SCATs) and give us some time to plan future events for this fall and spring.
More announcements about our revised schedule for the week and our book choices will be on the way. So, until then, you can sit back, relax, and anticipate the wondrous coming of Book Week on WRBH!
