Full Circle 8/25/17 — “Fortitude” Intro Show

Welcome to Full Circle, your cultural affairs radio magazine produced by members of the First Voice Apprenticeship Program. This show was written, produced, and recorded in Huichin, occupied Ohlone territory, also known to settlers as the Bay Area.

On tonight’s show we are passing the torch, saying farewell to apprentice Group 41 and welcoming us! Group 42, or Fortitude, as you’ll come to know us. This is our intro show.

The apprenticeship program is happy to be supported directly by the community as well as by KPFA. We want to give a grateful shout-out to those community businesses who helped us create a great event for the graduating cohort of apprentices, Group 41 known as Many Voices – ELIFINO, the group that has been bringing you Full Circle for the last 11 months.  The graduates celebrated their certifications with thanks to the following donors:

About First Voice Apprenticeship

First Voice Apprenticeship is an apprenticeship program at KPFA 94.1 FM in Berkeley and is designed to provide comprehensive broadcast, technical, and administrative skills training in radio. First Voice also aims to build and strengthen community and empower our participants to find their voice and tell their stories. The First Voice program is based on community building, a collaborative work environment and passing on our skills and stories. We focus on bringing women and people of color into media and work in partnership with Pacifica community radio station KPFA and other community media outlets, both locally and nationally. The First Voice Apprenticeship Program is currently 18 months. Everyone is required to spend one business day each week working at KPFA, as well as two class nights. The dayshift is a three hour shift and apprentices do administrative and production tasks. The dayshift runs on an intergenerational group learning model, with each phase teaching the next, and integrates service to the station, skills acquired in classes, motivation and leadership.
