Words is a two-minute short program produced in the studios at KAFM Community Radio in Grand Junction, Colorado. It airs three times per day, seven days per week, 365 days per year.
Each episode of this community collaboration features a child from a local school who is given the opportunity to research and record his or her chosen word. An episode is produced with the child reading over a music background. Approximately 30 children are recorded every month, and through the process, they learn about their word in particular, sentence structure in general, and scripting, recording and producing a finished on-air production.
The Words project gives children in the community the opportunity to practice their research, communication and pronunciation skills while introducing them to the world of community broadcasting and basic production tasks.
Words has been a favorite feature on KAFM for over eight years.
