Tune in to VCS Radio at 100.9FM or via the TuneIn app starting at 2pm on April 12th – April 13th until 2pm for our 24-hour Radio-A-Thon to celebrate National High School Radio Week!

We plan to get a bit crazy for the occasion. They’re capping the week off with a live 24-hour marathon with a twist — sending a coded message into outer space inviting alien spaceships to land on the school’s football field.

They’ll simulcast their show’s live audio into outer space all night using a series of modulated LED lights on the school roof. They plan to keep the football stadium lights on as a landing guide (as if an advanced civilization capable of interstellar travel needs landing lights). A team of remote student broadcasters, in tents and with binoculars, will check in from time to time to report on any UFOs sited or landing.

Meanwhile, in the studio, local bands will play space-themed songs live, and studio guests will be asked to offer a message to prospective space aliens friends. Listeners will be encouraged to call in to give their message. Other high school radio stations have expressed an interest in joining in so this will, no doubt, become a fun joint venture!
