To gear up for the grand unveiling, Julia Botero of NCPR and betterArts yesterday hosted a teach-in to familiarize Better Radio hosts and volunteers with recording equipment and basic production skills.
betterArts has also submitted payment for a BW Broadcast TX300 V2 FM transmitter, ethernet remote control and Nicolm BKG77 Broadband Circular Antenna.
For the radio launch, show hosts and emcees will take turns holding interviews, providing commentary and live-streaming musical performances by bands and performers throughout the festival. If you're not at Better Festival, you can tune in and listen live on WBTS 88.5 FM throughout the North Country within roughly 15 miles of Better Farm. Portions of the broadcast will also be available following Better Festival via podcast.
Anyone who would like to volunteer with preparation is invited on May 30 to come lend a hand in setting up the Better Radio studio and readying the grounds for the June 20 festival. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
