Radio Production Skills for Kansas City

On May 30th, DATA-SkillsUSA freshmen Sebastian Gomez and Alan Anguiano visited RR Broadcasting in Palm Springs in preparation for SkillsUSA nationals. The two students earned gold medals for California and will be representing CCHS and the Coachella Valley in Audio/Radio Production this June in Kansas City, MO.

During their time at the station they toured with Public Service Director Tiffany Gardner, got feedback on their own production, insight into the process of radio promotions, and sat in with on-air personality Rich "Coach" Gilgallon.
"It was awesome to sit down with Todd and Mike to learn real-world production techniques. We learned how to maintain tone and avoiding peaking. They told us to speak normally, but exaggerated, and to fully get to know a piece before you record it. We also got tips on using effects so our audio stands out."
- Sebastian and Alan

A huge thanks to Tiffany Gardner and 
for providing this opportunity for DATA students!
