Recent Post Roundup

First off: apologies for the disappearing act. We’ve been cooking up a few things for the long term and some other projects on short notice, and thus the blogging suffered.

Yet fear not! For the front page at Youth Radio has been off the hook all week… here’s some highlights for the three of you who don’t come to the blog via the website:

  • Pop, Lock & Roll: America’s Best Dance Crew— America Idol judge Randy Jackson’s new reality show has been a big hit here at the office. Youth Radio’s Best TV Watchin’ Crew: Brandon McFarland, Ayesha Walker, Susana Vuong, and Denise Tejada got together to break down their fandom. [Real Media Format]
  • In Memory: Markeese Edwards–a former student of Youth Radio’s CAP program, Markeese was slain in Oakland last week. We’ve gathered up a small collection of photos and tribute recordings to honor his memory.
  • Strange Illness— Denise Tejada talks about how her experience with contaminated water and food made her re-think what she can do to help keep the Bay Area environment clean.
  • Thrifting— Kelly Douglas of Youth Radio Atlanta brings us up to speed in the latest in thrift store chic.

That’s just to hold you until I can get a very special interview up this afternoon. You should probably go get yourself some sliders to go with that one.

  1. I think this site is great! I’d like to share with my fellow Atlanta students this great organization called Youth Media Minds of America (YMMA). YMMA is provides audio, video and multi-media instruction to students, age 14-18. They are located at 206 North Clarendon Avenue in Avondale Esates, GA.

    We are holding a FREE open house on Saturday, Sept. 6 from 10am – 2pm. During the open house, parents and students will have a chance to tour our state-of-the-art facility and speak with our skilled instructors.

    For more information or to speak with someone about YMMA, contact Renee Bishop, Vice President of Operations. Her email is and her phone number is 404-259-5272. Or you can visit us on the web at
