sound on

Sound On is a hands-on radio project by Aġenzija Żgħażagħ designed for young people who wanted to explore and venture into radio broadcasting.

The young people, during the summer, have been meeting weekly to explore different areas related to radio broadcasting.

45 young people are enrolled in this programme being held at  Aġenzija Żgħażagħ youth cafès across Malta and Gozo.

The young people participating in Sound On gained different skills. These skills encouraged the young people to acquire the ability to work with others, discuss issues critically, and speak confidently.

The young people acquired the essential elements of presenting a programme, planning and preparing a programme whilst considering the target audiences.

They practised breathing techniques and learned how this may be helpful to speak confidently in public.

Given the extent of use of electronic tools used in the production and editing of podcasts, the participants developed and enhanced their digital skills.  The young people learnt how to set up the radio equipment and record the programmes using audio editing software.

Furthermore, the young people edited their recordings by including different sound effects and music to enhance the programme’s quality.

In the coming weeks, Agenzija Żgħażagħ will upload these programmes as podcasts to its’ website and social media. The participating young people will continue to produce such podcasts in the coming months at the youth cafès.
