Learn radio with the Kitchen Sisters

For those of you on the West Coast interested in learning to use radio as a reporting medium, here's a great opportunity:

Dear Friends,
Davia Nelson of The Kitchen Sisters is holding two recording and interviewing workshops on Thursday, July 19 in San Francisco. These three-hour sessions are designed for people who want to acquire and hone their skills in an array of audio projects--radio, online storytelling, oral histories, audio slide shows, family histories, news, documentaries, podcasts, and other multimedia platforms.
In the workshops, Davia will cover interviewing, miking techniques, sound gathering, use of archival audio, field recording techniques, how to make interviewees comfortable, how to frame evocative questions that make for compelling storytelling, how to build a story and how to listen (which is harder than it looks).
The workshop is customized to fit the projects you are working on. People who attend come from radiofilmmultimedia, newspapers, journalism, photography, oral history, historical societies, farms, music, writing, libraries, archives, web design,detective agencies, restaurants, health care organizations, and beyond. The groups are always lively and good contacts are made.
The workshops are held in Francis Coppola's historic Zoetrope building in North Beach at 916 Kearny St. Of course, a snack will be served.
Morning Workshop: 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Afternoon Workshop: 2:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Each session is $115.
If you, or someone you know is interested, email Please pass this along to your community.
Expand your skills, meet new people, support the work of The Kitchen Sisters.
See you there,
The Kitchen Sisters
