Tell northern Michigan's story with Red Pine Radio

Aug 6, 2019


IPR’s community radio team needs more storytellers. Learn the basic skills for creating sound rich stories for public radio and podcasting this fall.

Peter Payette, executive director of Interlochen Public Radio, will offer three-hour crash courses in the basics of sound recording and editing. This workshop is a first step toward becoming part of Red Pine Radio, a group of community members who craft their own radio stories about life in northern Michigan.

Workshop participants will need their own phone and computer to work with free software: the Hindenburg recording app and the editing program Audacity
