“We really stress the incorporation of the community, and we simply want to introduce people to radio and let them play around with it,” says Ruedenberg.
It was in the 1970’s in Los Angelos that the Ames native first discovered community radio. In fact, to this day, Pacifica, or KPFA, which lies in Berkeley CA, sets the standard for non-commercial, community-based radio stations.
“It is such a great communication tool, for it is active and utilizes language as the most effective and important form of communication - unlike TV and other media,” said Ruedenberg.
In partaking in the upcoming Studio Tours, KHOI plans to offer participation for all visitors by providing instruction in the medium, as well as a chance to go on the air.
“We hope people get a chance to have fun and hopefully learn a bit about themselves by exercising language as the ultimate communication tool, ” says Ruedenberg.
