Blastin' Stuff Atcha!
It has begun,
Scouts are arriving, open fields of grass are becoming tent cities, and the
Jamboree is turning into the 4th largest city in the state of Virginia.
Scouts who want to
take a turn on the air need to come to the QBSA studios as soon as you can to
sign up for an airtime slot and for your training class. Classes will
start right away and the airtime slots fill up fast, so don't delay or you may
get left out!
Again QBSA will be streamed on the Internet, and we will be on the air 24 hours
A professional quality morning show starts the day
and 5:30 with Longstreet Lars and company.
The morning show runs until 9:00 am.
At 9:00 Boy Scouts take the airwaves for 15 minutes
each. After attending a 30 minute class, each scout picks their own music,
then goes on the air. During their shift, each scout will read public service
announcements about Jamboree activities, give a weather forecast and some will
read sports stories or scores. When they leave, each scout takes along a
CD of his appearance to remember his time at QBSA.
Scout shows end at 5:00 pm. From that time
until 11 pm, our staff mans the controls playing an eclectic
variety of music, interacting with Scouts, Scouters and visitors. From 11 pm
until 5:30 am highlights of previous QBSA shows will be rebroadcast.
At various times during the day there
will be giveaways
of Frisbees with the station logo, or small FM radios. Some of the
giveaways involve asking scouts and others to perform the
Y. M. C. A., the
Chicken Dance, or maybe even the Macarena.
This year we are proud to announce
that QBSA is streaming audio live on the internet and will expand to 24
hours a day online.
The staff of QBSA is expanded from 2005, with lots of Jamboree experience, Broadcasting
experience and just plain desire to do a good job for the scouts, it will be the best
edition of QBSA yet.
