KYAB ~ Yell and Broadcast

September 10 – October 23, 2004

Lead Artist: Lee Montgomery
Collaborator: Neighborhood Public Radio

A one-hour weekly radio project presented by the youth of Southern Exposure’s Youth Advisory Board. Artist Lee Montgomery with Neighborhood Public Radio instructed students in the methods and aesthetics of working with sound for presentation on the radio. Participants learned invaluable vocational skills such as interviewing and recording techniques, digital editing skills, scripting, and live hosting methods. For KYAB ~ Yell and Broadcast, Southern Exposure's Youth Advisory Board has a voice on the NPR airwaves on Thursday evenings from 4:00 - 5:00pm. Listen in to the music, interviews and experiences of Bay Area salad days. 

The Youth Advisory Board is a small cohort of passionate AIE youth artists who help to promote and facilitate youth involvement in Southern Exposure.  By providing YAB members with the materials and support to sculpt their own space, both in the gallery and on the website, YAB seeks to make their collective youth voices heard.  YAB artists meet twice a month to plan youth-initiated and organized art events, exhibitions, and projects.
