Alumnae Reunion Show this Tuesday, November 3rd at 7:00 pm pacific

The Gator Radio Experience is eagerly anticipating our Alumnae reunion show this coming Tuesday, November 3rd at 7:00 pm pacific. We have loose commitments from Stephanie, Kaitlin, Angie, and Nicola to join us live tomorrow night. All four of these college freshmen were instrumental in contributing to the basic idea of trying to produce a regular, live Internet radio broadcast at Castilleja.

This reunion show also coincides with the celebration of the Gator Radio's birthday (Oct 29th, 2008 was our first live broadcast!) Sam will be remixing some of the bands that we've featured over the past year and we hope that we'll be joined by our first guest ever, Doug Symington, who is currently in the Canadian Rockies working a World Cup Ski event.

We hope to see you tomorrow night for our Alumnae reunion broadcast and the celebration of the fact that our project just turned one!

A Few News Items and a Programming Note

The Gator Radio Experience is pleased to announce that our work will receive mention in an upcoming book by two professors from George Mason University, Lynne Schrum and Gwen Solomon. The book is titled How2 Web2 and Where2 Next and will be released from ISTE in 2010. While I'm not totally certain what the book is about, I have a hunch that it deals with student use of various mixed media and that our project will be mentioned in a short paragraph. Congrats to all Castilleja Gator Radio Experience team members, both past and present, for your hard work on this project over the past year! It is quite an honor to be referenced in a book!

Secondly, the Gator Radio Experience's music expert, Sam, will be participating in a Teen Tech Forum at the Western Association of Venture Capitalist meeting here in Menlo Park this week. Michael Arrington of Tech Crunch fame will be moderating the panel.  Good luck and have fun on the panel, Sam. We know you'll do great!

Programming Notes:
Our next show is scheduled for Tuesday, October 20th, 2009 at 7:00 pm pacific/10 pm eastern. We're looking forward to this show as we'll be joined by Castilleja Tech Department member, Adam Contois, for our music segment. Adam will play live music for the first time ever on the Gator Radio Experience! If you'd like a sneak peak of Adam's guitar playing skills, check out a podcast from the Edtechtalk Brainstorm in June.

Finally, it looks like our Alumnae reunion show scheduled for Tuesday, November 3rd at 7:00 pm pacific/10 pm eastern will actually be happening. While the committments are tentative, it looks like we'll be joined by GRE alumnae Stephanie (UC-Santa Barbara), Nicola (Cal Poly San Luis Obispo), Kaitlin (Georgetown), and possibly Angie (Pitzer). All four of these alumnae were key contributors to helping get the GRE project up and running last year it it will be wonderful to check in with them to see what they're up to. The 3rd of November also happens to be near the 1 year anniversary of our project (Wednesday, October 29th, 2008 was our first broadcast). We'll use the 3rd as an opportunity to celebrate one year of Gator Radio Goodness as well!

We hope you're able to join us on these upcoming broadcasts. Thanks for supporting the Gator Radio Experience!

Gator Radio Experience Episode #17 Podcast

This was our final official broadcast of the 2008-2009 school year.

Plight of Western Sahara Podcast Recording

On April 15th I had the wonderful opportunity to speak with Pedro Pinto Leite and Cynthia Basinet about the plight of Western Sahara. Pedro Pinto Leite is a Portuguese international jurist based in Holland and the coordinator of the Dutch section of the International Association of Jurists for Western Sahara. Together with Cynthia Basinet an activist, actress, singer, and a Nobel Peace prize nominee we discussed the history and the current situation of Western Sahara. A former colony of Spain, Western Sahara, also know as the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, is fighting for a referendum so they can become independent from Morocco. We as students can help Free Western Sahara by joining the Facebook Cause Free Western Sahara and by contacting our representatives and pressing them to support their colleagues Donald M. Payne and Joseph R. Pitts by signing the letter they have written urging President Obama to support the Sahrawi peoples right to self-determination. We will soon have the privilege to talk with Pedro and Cynthia again and discuss in further detail what we as a community can do to help those fighting for independence and living in refugee camps.

GRE Special Broadcast with our Guests from Italy

We did a spontaneous broadcast today with our guests from Italy who have been visiting our school community over the past week.

Gator Radio Experience Special Broadcast-Tuesday, March 25th

The Gator Radio Experience will be broadcasting live from Castilleja School on Wednesday, March 25th from 12:45 pm - 1:15 pm. We'll be joined by students from Italy who are visiting the Bay Area and doing home stays with several of our school families. We hope that their families and friends in Italy are able to join the broadcast. Click here to convert the time to your region of the world (the time in Rome, Italy that we'll start our broadcast is 8:45 pm/20:45).

We'll broadcast from the same ustream channel that we always use. Please DM our Twitter account or send us an email at [at] gmail dot come if you'd like the password for listening in to the conversation.

For those of you at Castilleja, I would ask that you not participate via ustream. Our Internet bandwidth will become choked if we have too many concurrent connections. We'll do two things to accomodate participation at Casti: #1-we'll have a listening lounge setup where you'll be able to congregate and listen live. The lounge location is tentatively planned for the commons area directly below the dining room OR outside of the weather is nice. Secondly, we'll be sure to record and post the audio so you can listen to it later as a podcast.

This should be a fun cultural exchange conversation that will take place in both English and Italian. Please join us if you are available!

Gator Radio Experience Podcast #9

Wow, what a wonderful show tonight as we were joined by Amanda Ritter, Jenny Luca, Jess McCulloch, and some of their students and colleagues from the Melbourne area. Actually, Jess lives in a separate location from Amanda and Jenny, who work together at the same school I believe.

We had a really nice exchange as we discussed the bush fires that have devastated a good deal of Victoria. On behalf of everyone on the Gator Radio Experience team and the students at our school here in Palo Alto, California, our thoughts and prayers are with all Australians.

In addition to our conversation regarding the fires, we were joined by Sam C who introduced our featured band for the show, The Hoodies. Following our music segment our show hosts shared their thoughts on the Oscars.

Enjoy the podcast! And again, thank you to all of our guests from Australia and to everyone who listened live.

Gator Radio Experience Podcast #8

This was the broadcast that wasn't in a way. Unfortunately the Internet Tubes were not on our side for this broadcast and we were unable to stream live to Ustream. It was too bad, because tonight was the debut of new our new Gator Radio Team member Nicola. Also joining us during the music segment was our music specialist, Sam, who shared her experiences with us.

Our featured guest on this episode was Jose Rodriguez, a member of the Earthbridges Community, who spoke to us about the 24 Hour Webcastathon on Earthday 2009 called, Earthcast09. The Gator Radio Experience will be moderating an hour long block for Earthcast09 and it was nice to connect with Mr. Rodriguez to learn more about the project. If you are interested in helping out with the Earthcast09 project in any capacity, please visit the Earthbridges Community website or email the Earthbridges community at earthbridges at gmail dot com.

Thank you to everyone who tried to tune in and listen live. We apologize for the technical glitches and we hope you'll come back to listen to our next broadcast on Tuesday, February 24th at 8:00 PM Pacific.

A truly spectacular show tonight where we recapped the historic and memorable inauguration of President Obama. A special thanks to Ms. Brown for joining us live from DC and sharing her experience from the day and also to Scott from Tokyo for taking time out to speak with us as well.

At the end of the show, we opend up the lines and we had listeners call in to share their feelings, which really proved to be a nice addition to out show (we'll try to continue to do this in upcoming shows).

Of course a shout out is in order for tonight's featured band, Brave Citizens (check out their myspace page or visit them on iTunes).
