Blastin' Stuff Atcha!
We are on the air for the first time from the NEW Summit Bechtel
Reserve in West Virginia, the new permanent location of the National Scout
Scouts who want to
take a turn on the air need to come to the QBSA studios as soon as you can to
sign up for an airtime slot and for your training class. Classes will
start right away and the airtime slots fill up fast, so don't delay or you may
get left out!
Again QBSA will be streamed on the Internet, and we will be on the air 24 hours
a day. This time we also have a smartphone app. Download the
TuneIn App from the Apple store of the Droid marketplace then search QBSA.
A professional quality morning show starts the day
and 5:30 with Ed Evans, John tudor and Tade Sullivan.
The morning show runs until 9:00 am.
At 9:00 Boy Scouts take the airwaves for 15 minutes
each. After attending a 30 minute class, each scout picks their own music,
then goes on the air. During their shift, each scout will read public service
announcements about Jamboree activities, give a weather forecast and some will
read sports stories or scores. When they leave, each scout takes along a
CD of his appearance to remember his time at QBSA.
Scout shows end at 7:00 pm. From that time
until 10 pm, our staff mans the controls playing an eclectic
variety of music, interacting with Scouts, Scouters and visitors. From 10 pm
until 5:30 am highlights of previous QBSA shows will be rebroadcast.
At various times during the day there
will be giveaways
of Frisbees and lots of other great things. Some of the
giveaways involve asking scouts and others to perform the
Y. M. C. A., the
Chicken Dance, or maybe even the Macarena.
The staff of QBSA is expanded from 2010, with lots of Jamboree experience, Broadcasting
experience and just plain desire to do a good job for the scouts, it will be the best
edition of QBSA yet.
