Sunrise Survivors Debut

This Wednesday we began the recording of the Sunrise Survivors official first (and last) episode. We met in the HCC and rented a USB microphone to begin our recording. I know many people have come up with scripts and we considered doing the same but […]

Rise and Shine, Listeners!

After a long struggle with internet following the insane windstorm this past Friday, I can finally share the beginnings of our radio project. Last Thursday was the first meeting of The Sunrise Survivors: Elaina, Jillian, Alyssa and me! We coordinated a time to meet at […]
