To: “Dave Palmer.Mary Monsour, Tres Little,Jeffery Crabtree,Karen Driscoll, Karl Aldag, Steve Scherer

Everyone involved in Owl Radio:

In an effort to move the process along, I am requesting that all those involved in the purchasing of the radio equipment meet.

As you know, Computer Services is reviewing the computer portion of the radio equipment bid and PTD is required to review the multimedia portion. Tres Little from PTD, Karen Driscoll from ITS as well as the students must come to an understanding before Procurement can put the items out for bid. It is most important that Tres Little, Karen Driscoll, David Palmer, Jeffery Crabtree, an someone from Procurement be in attendance – but the meeting is open to everyone.

This coming week, Monday, February 19 through Friday, February 23 from noon to about 1:30 pm is the best time for the students involved. I am requesting that all of you get back to me as soon as possible with the best date for you to meet.

Once I have your preferred times I will let you know the date and place. For your review I’ve attached the equipment list again. Thank you in advance for your time and effort – I look forward to hearing from you.

Ed

Subject: OWL Radio- Phase II

Dear Owl Radio members,

After many meetings and much discussion, I believe we are ready to move on
to phase II of the KSU radio project: actual purchases and site choice,
construction and/or alterations.

The students have elected to go with an AM carrier current station due to
the lower costs, relatively faster implementation, and not needing to worry
about FCC license concerns – at least for now.

We have been working with LPB, a company that specializes in college
broadcast, and have a preliminary quote. If you supply your fax number I
will fax you the quote.

I would like to meet with those Mr. Holley, Jeff Crabtree and any that feel
they should be involved at this junction. Please reply and let me know of
your interest and I will set up the meeting. Perhaps the representative from
LPB could be involved via speaker phone.

Again, thank you for your support of OWL Radio. I look forward to hearing
from you. Ed

Thank you for your efforts, enthusiasm and support for a campus radio station expressed at our meeting last Monday.

To make sure we are all on the same page, the meeting ended with us dropping the AM carrier current model and looking much more seriously at a Radiating Cable FM (“FM leaky cable”) system, possibly using fiber optic cable for distribution rather than the standard phone lines. Initial broadcast points include the student center, KSU Place and University Place.

I will begin immediately working on the Campus Radio Survey Form but need assistance from all of you for some of the items requested:

Earle Holley: Your assistance is greatly needed in determining the structure, size, and location of the proposed studio. As discussed, we need at least three 8′ x 10′ areas for broadcast, production and library facilities. Of course, more space is always useful.

Jeff Crabtree: below is the information requested. Any aid in either securing this material, or giving me the contacts would be very helpful:

Please include a SCALE campus plot plan, or blueprint, showing all of the buildings you want to reach, with the following information indicated (contact your buildings and grounds office for help with this):
[ ] Location of existing or proposed studios
[ ] Buildings in which coverage is desired
[ ] Outdoor areas where coverage is desired
[ ] Number of floors in buildings where coverage is desired
[ ] Cable TV Drops/Head End feeds (and CATV Company)
[ ] Closed Circuit TV Systems, if any, for campus
[ ] Fiber Optic Systems, if any, and Owner of them
[ ] Any phone links already in use (for Carrier Current or other)
[ ] Map any and all tunnels or interconnecting conduits between buildings (This can save $$)

I appreciate your help and look forward to your reply. The goal is still to be broadcasting by this Fall.

Again, thank you for your support of OWL Radio. Ed

Dear Dr. Siegel,

Dr. Womack forwarded your letter to me regarding a campus radio station. I am very happy to report that OWL Radio is very close to being a reality. While a campus station has been initiated many times in the past, the most serious effort was introduced in November of 1999 and OWL Radio was approved as a student organization on October 11, 2000. Shortly after they were accepted under the Student Media Board umbrella, the student, staff and faculty committee which works closely with our other student media groups – The Sentinel newspaper, Talon feature magazine and Share art & literary magazine.

Since then several staff members have taken the lead in working with these students (David Palmer, Mike Carleton, and Scott Stephenson); namely Earle Holley, Jeff Crabtree and myself. We have had several discussions and two conference calls this past year with LPB Communications, a company that specializes in building and supporting college radio stations.

At the last conference call meeting it was agreed that the best option to pursue was a radiating cable FM (“FM leaky cable”) station. We may be able to use fiber optic cable for distribution rather than the standard phone lines. This system allows the better quality of FM without any requirement for FCC licensing. It is a true broadcast system and would be heard in most campus buildings, including the residence halls and the students center and has unlimited room for growth.

We now have two hurdles left. First is the cost. The FM radiating cable system desired was estimated by LPB (March 2002) to cost $72 – 80 thousand. Another approach would be to initially set up broadcast for the two residence halls and the student center and expand from there. This option would cost less than $50,000. This amount includes equipment, studio and installation. In 1999, Dr. Randy Hines earmarked $25,000 from the technology fee for this station, but these funds may no longer be available. Mr. Holley believes the money may be found.

The second obstacle is the location. We need at least three 8′ x 10′ areas for broadcast, production and library facilities. Of course, more space is always useful. Once these two hurdles are solved LPB can be invited to campus. A site visit by the company would sort out options for interconnection and review the buildings. The station could be a reality in 2-4 months from that visit.

A campus radio station is truly an exciting prospect, especially now that we are a residential campus as you pointed out. I can imagine broadcasting sporting events, special shows sponsored by academic departments, campus news, and beneficial relationships with departments such as Communication and Continuing Education. Perhaps even fireside chats or state of the Campus broadcasts with you! We have tremendous talent and support here at KSU with people like Larry Lowenstein and Dr. Womack.

I look forward to hearing from you, Dr. Siegel. Thank you for your efforts, enthusiasm and support for a campus radio station expressed in your letter. If I may be of further assistance please do not hesitate to call on me.

Sincerely,

Ed Bonza
Assistant Director, Student Life Center

Earle,
We can fit this into a few locations that are unassigned. I met with Ed and the 2nd floor nook is his first choice. He gave me a lot of information from LPB Communications, and I will work on getting a total cost estimate. Ed had a list of equipment that came to $72,520, but it does not look complete, and we will get more detail. We’ll also estimate walls, wiring, HVAC etc…
Ed suggested that I include Keisha Hoerrner, (w/Communications), Jeff Crabtree, and a student, once it’s time to have a group meeting. LPB can do a complete equipment layout and design for $2000. I’ll get you the estimate before contacting anybody else. Thanks, JA
Earle Holley 12/09/02 10:31AM >>>
John, focus strongly on the options that do not take away current functionality for anyone. The nook is one example. Also, you may want to present some options, ie. the current cab space for movies perhaps could be switched with the nook.

John Anderson 12/09/02 09:33AM >>>
Lee,
We have two options drawn. One is the nook on the 2nd floor of the student center addition, (near the restrooms), and the other is the front portion of the Alumni suite. We’re also looking at a portion of the lounge space on the first floor, and a portion of the game room. Should I meet with Ed Bonza about this, or somebody else? Do you or Earle have a preferred location?
I’ll do a program and estimates, but I need more information about the equipment and other details. Please advise, JA

Lee Richey 12/09/02 07:59AM >>>
As I recall, John gave you two or three options, but not sure if you ever acted on any of them. By copy of this note, I ask John to refresh me and Earle on the proposed locations of radio stations.

Date: January 22, 2003 at 12:20:10 PM EST

Thank you for your inquiry regarding Owl Radio, KSU’s student radio station group.

Unfortunately, an actual station is still in limbo. Three years ago, several students took the lead, worked hard, and received approval and initial funding for a campus radio station. This past Spring semester, the group was approved as a campus student organization and is operating under the student media umbrella.

We still have a long way to go, however. The administration has approved a FM carrier current station and made final decisions on location for the broadcast/library/production facility. We have even interviewed companies that do most of the work, but still have a ways to go.

An AM carrier current station would cost between $25,000 and 40,000, and FM version between $40,000 and up. These are startup costs only; they do not include yearly operational costs. Due to funding issues at the state and local level, the money is not available this year.

I wish I could give you an actual completion date, but I can’t offer that at this time. Please be patient and understand that it is still high up on our agenda. When we have made more progress, even though our first actual broadcast is still far off.

Keep your eye on The Sentinel newspaper (or sign up for the email newsletter version at http://www.ksusentinel.com) for further updates. Ed

I also encourage you to check out the Collegiate Broadcasters Inc.(CBI) web page at www.collegebroadcasters.org/ as well as get in touch with each other. An interest survey was conducted in the residence halls; as soon as the results are tabulated I will forward them to you. Ed

E. Lanier Finch,
Time & NCSA Manager
Georgia Association of Broadcasters

Dear Mr. Shaklan and Mr. Finch:

Thank you for taking time to meet with me and Larry Lowenstein and I July 7 and sorry for the lateness of this letter – this promises to be a busy year! As we discussed, I’m going to share with you what has been accomplished so far. Some of the proposals and other documents are also attached.

While a Kennesaw State campus station had been initiated many times in the past, the most serious effort was introduced in November of 1999 – OWL Radio was approved as a student organization on October 11, 2000. Shortly after, they were accepted under the Student Media Board umbrella, the student, staff and faculty committee which works closely with our other student media groups – The Sentinel newspaper, Talon feature magazine and Share art & literary magazine.

We have had several discussions and conferences these past years with various administrators and LPB Communications, a company that specializes in building and supporting college radio stations.

At the last conference call meeting it was agreed that the best option to pursue was a radiating cable FM (“FM leaky cable”) station. We may be able to use fiber optic cable for distribution rather than the standard phone lines. This system allows the better quality of FM without any requirement for FCC licensing. It is a true broadcast system and would be heard in most campus buildings, including the residence halls and the students center and has unlimited room for growth.

We now have two hurdles left. First is the cost. The FM radiating cable system desired was estimated by LPB (March 2002) to cost $72 – 80 thousand. Another approach would be to initially set up broadcast for the two residence halls and the student center and expand from there. This option would cost less than $50,000. This amount includes equipment, studio and installation. We continue to work with our Vice president for Business and Finance for funding.

The second obstacle is the location. We believe we need at least three 8′ x 10′ areas for broadcast, production and library facilities. Of course, more space is always useful. Once these two hurdles are solved LPB – or other companies and experts – can be invited to campus.

Thanks to John Anderson, Director of Facility Planning and Design Service, we believe we’ve solved the location problem with the utilization of the student center’s second floor nook near the judiciary offices. We may need a separate HVAC control for this space because of the heat generated.

A campus radio station is truly an exciting prospect, especially now that we are a residential campus as we discussed – almost 18,000 students this fall. We can imagine broadcasting sporting events, special shows sponsored by academic departments, campus news, and beneficial relationships with departments such as Communication and Continuing Education. We have tremendous talent and support here at KSU with people like Larry Lowenstein and Dr. Womack and Mr. Earle Holley – and now the GAB.

I’ve pasted the information from LPB below and have also attached other PDF files. I cannot tell you how much we appreciate the support, expert advice and assistance of the Georgia Association of Broadcasters. We look forward to your visit and help.

Subject: OWL Radio update
Date: March 5, 2004 at 9:08:50 AM EST

You are receiving this email because you have expressed interest in a campus radio station. I am happy to report that soon OWL Radio will be a reality.

The KSU administration and the Student Activities and Budget Advisory Committee each has agreed to fund half the total cost of the radio station ($50,000).

While a campus station has been initiated many times in the past, the most serious effort was introduced in November of 1999 and OWL Radio was approved as a student organization on October 11, 2000. Shortly after they were accepted under the Student Media Board umbrella, the student. Staff and faculty committee which works closely with our other student media groups – The Sentinel newspaper, Talon feature magazine and Share art & literary magazine.

I have worked closely these past years with LPB Communications, a company that specializes in building and supporting college radio stations. Considering all our options (tower broadcasting, AM carrier current, etc.) it was agreed that the best option to pursue was a radiating cable FM (“FM leaky cable”) station. We may be able to use fiber optic cable for distribution rather than the standard phone lines. This system allows the better quality of FM without any requirement for FCC licensing. It is a true broadcast system and will be heard initially in the student center, KSU Place and University Place. I will also look into costs of including the new Village campus housing. In addition, we are looking to also do internet streaming which would allow the campus – and our alumni – to listen via their computers. This combined package has unlimited room for growth.

We needed two 8′ x 10′ areas for broadcast & production (and some library) facilities. The lounge space in the student center next to Judiciary can be converted easily, will not take away existing office space, is close to current student media offices and is highly visible.

I wish I could be more specific about the actual completion date, but the actual installation costs of the cables for interconnection and a timeline cannot be finalized until a site visit by the company. We are hoping WKSU-FM will begin broadcasting station by this Fall.

A campus radio station is truly an exciting prospect. I can imagine broadcasting sporting events, special shows sponsored by academic departments, campus news, and beneficial relationships with departments such as Communication and Continuing Education. We have tremendous talent and support here at KSU.

I will hold an OWL Radio Information meeting after Spring Break and you will be the first to know the date and location once it is scheduled. In the meantime, keep reading The Sentinel for updates.

Thank you again for your enthusiasm and support for a campus radio station. Faculty, staff, and individuals from the local community have all given their time and backing to this endeavor – but it is students like you who have never given up on the idea of OWL Radio and brought us to this historic moment. Once the meeting is set I will let you know – see you there!

Latest info on Owl Radio
Gang – Here’s the latest:
We’ve just received word that Intramurals staff will be moving into the new Recreation & Wellness Center on September 21. The Project Request has already been approved and construction will begin after that date. The equipment list is almost finalized (and approved) by the Presentation Technology dept., and LPB will probably be providing the furniture and some equipment.
While the physical aspects of Owl Radio plod along, there is still much to do with the operational side of the station. This is the part of the job where I would appreciate student involvement.
As you know, WKSU-FM is a student organization under the umbrella of the Student Media Board. Eventually the station will be completely in student hands, but there is still much to do.
What about bylaws and a constitution? A mission statement? Staffing and position descriptions? Manuals and policies? How & who will conduct training? How will time slots for DJs be determined? Format? This and more needs to be determined.
Any documents will ultimately need the approval of the Student Media Board (and in some cases, the approval of SABAC), but I would like to appoint a committee of primarily students to address these issues and make proposals to be reviewed by the SMB.
For a great place to start and an excellent resource, I encourage you to check out the Collegiate Broadcasters Inc. (CBI) web page at www.collegebroadcasters.org/ Our office is already a member of CBI.
In the interest of manageability, I’m limiting the Radio Operations Committee to 10 members plus myself. Even if you are not selected, meetings are open and dates & times will be announced ahead of time at the Owl Radio club at www.thefacebook.com and posted on the bulletin board outside the Student Life Center (student center 274). Any ideas, suggestions and questions may be sent to me and I will forward them to the committee.
If you are interested in sitting on the Radio Operations Committee, email me at ebonza@kennesaw.edu and let me know what you have to offer. Thanks! ed

Operations Committee still needs members
Gang,
Below is the list of students, faculty and staff who have expressed interest in serving on the OWL Radio Operations Committee.
As you know, WKSU-FM is a student organization under the umbrella of the Student Media Board. Eventually the station will be completely in student hands, but there is still much to do.
The Operations committee  will make recommendations to the Student Media Board as to the operational aspects of the station: bylaws, constitution, mission statement, format, staffing and position descriptions, manuals and policies, training and more. Any documents will ultimately need the approval of the Student Media Board (and in some cases, the approval of SABAC). Any ideas, suggestions and questions may be sent to me and I will forward them to the committee.
This committee will be doing hard work; if you are only interested in being a DJ, this is not the committee for you. Whether you work on this committee or not, Owl Radio will be open to all KSU students.
I would like at least two more student members – if you are interested, contact me.
Below is those who have offered to serve on the committee.  If you are still willing to make the commitment, thank you!

Students:

Latest update: 11-4-05
Gang,
Allow me to give you the latest update. The Owl Radio Operations committee, made up of faculty, staff and students (many of you part of this group) is moving along, and will be presenting me with proposals for a constitution, bylaws, mission statement, and staff manual. I know – the real un-fun stuff. They will be finishing these documents around Nov. 11 and I will then forward them to the Student Media Board for their approval.
Bad news: Facility Planning & Design Services tells me that they currently have 30 projects in the queue, and the earliest they can schedule design (including an acoustic specialist) and construction is this summer.
However, while construction moves (ponderously) forward, I am pursuing going ahead with the purchase of equipment and beginning &#34;scaled down&#34; web broadcast from either the current student publication area (student center 277, specifically room 281 inside this area) or where the studio will be until construction begins. First we need to determine if these areas support the switches or bandwidth necessary.
As soon as we can get a real idea of when we can start, the Student Media Board will begin the selection process for the station manager (and perhaps other officers), I know most of you are interested in these positions, or simply when you can begin being a DJ – I will let you guys know first – promise.
Any advice or suggestions about any aspect of WKSU-FM are always appreciated!

Owl Radio Update: 2-6-06
The documents (manual, staffing, mission) drafts have been received – thank the operations committee members for their hard work. I would also like to thank our Presentation Technology Department and Information Technology Services representatives for input and support.
Now for more bad news. Basically, our IT office simply doesn’t have the staffing to support any streaming component of our station and we don’t have the money to pay a new full-time employee. I haven’t and will not stop pursuing the internet avenue nor the cable FM station, but I have begun exploring the commons model. Karl Aldag, Director Presentation Technology Department has been extremely supportive and envisions facilities for groups also being part of the facility or space.
Most information commons are state-of-the-art educational technology faciliies, typically offering high-end multimedia development workstations, networked electronic classrooms, and general use computers for database searching, e-mail and word processing. Sometimes they fall under one department (usually IT or the library) but more often are joint ventures (communication, IT, student activites, etc).
I think it is valuable to pursue the commons model for two reasons – additional money, and because a collection of voices (from the department collaborating) would carry more weight and be taken more seriously than mine alone.
• Georgia State has the ‘Digital Aquarium’ that’s a joint venture of their IT, student center and SGA:
(http://www2.gsu.edu/~wwwdaq/
• Loyola College in Maryland has one owned by the communications department, used 99% of the time by the radio station staff, and 1% by radio and audio classes (and some advertising and music kids).
• University of Iowa:
http://www.lib.uiowa.edu/commons/
• Indiana University:
http://kb.iu.edu/data/alhn.html
• An excellent listing of institutions with information commons categorized by name, state, etc.:
http://www.brookdale.cc.nj.us/library/infocommons/ic_home.html
Loyola College has a Mac lab that includes MiniDV and ProTools systems, in addition to the systems that are in the TV and Radio facilities. This lab is mixed use for Graphics, Journalism, Audio, Video and other classes. It is a Communications lab space, but it’s used by lots of people, according to their student radio station adviser. It’s support is mixed between the department, IT and the Radio/TV facilities. I would hope that if a commons plan was to be approved at KSU, a station would also be part of it.
I must admit that I’m a bit discouraged, but have not given up. Sometimes I feel like we take one step forward and five or six back. The other publications sometimes make it hard to find the time to devote to this project – but I’m not complaining!
I do believe that it is important to begin broadcasting as early as possible, and then build from that. One option that would give students a station without a huge startup cost or lots of construction just get us started was offered to me by a fellow adviser:
“Purchase Rangemaster transmitter(s) and install them on the highest, well grounded, rooftop around. feed it from the CATV system using a TV modulator ($700-2500) and a demodulator (or even a broken VCR with a good TV tuner). Simple studio package around a Autogram minimix 8 might cost you $5000. Basically, other than labor costs (which could be a much bigger $) you should be able to get on with AM and CATV for under $10,000. Add a single stream computer feeding Live635 and you’re done.”
Complete information is available at:

And:

If you know of any other simple options I would be more than happy to listen.

Some more options
Below is the followup information I promised since my last post. The options below are iTunes U, podcasting, and Live365. Please let me know your feelings about these options. If you know of any other simple options I would be more than happy to listen.
Live365
According to their website, Live365’s Professional Broadcasting Services (PRO)  are scalable, which makes them perfect for the large and small broadcaster. Broadcast your audio content Live, Archived, On Demand, or just relay your existing Internet broadcast via our network.
You won’t need to buy extra bandwidth, pay expensive server-licensing fees, or outsource your audio broadcast to expensive vendors.
Live365 clients use our PRO services to broadcast all kinds of audio, including music, lectures, sermons, news, training, educational information, sports, speeches, meetings, events or good old-fashioned self-promotion.
Live365 offers full royalty/licensing coverage for SoundExchange, ASCAP, BMI and SESAC. In addition, Live365’s PRO broadcasting services will allow you to broadcast without any Live365 advertising in or on your broadcast.
Start up costs are around $100 and is often waived – I think they have a deal now. Maybe I didn’t read it right but it seems that both their “standard” plans and “royalty included” plans will run you between $200-400 a month. I’ve attached their rate info and you can check them out at:
http://www.live365.com/
http://www.live365.com/broadcast/index.live
Some broadcasters using Live365 streaming services:
www.907ksdj.com (128k)
www.krcc.org (48k)
www.kxlu.com (56k)
www.makradio.com (128k)
iTunes U
Apple’s iTunes U program can be checked out at:
http://www.apple.com/education/solutions/itunes_u/
http://itunes.stanford.edu/
Very useful and impressive, but not really any support of streaming audio or live broadcasts, and I believe that’s what students interested in Owl Radio want. Cedrick Rogers, our Apple Higher Education Account Exec. is open to discussion.
Podcasting
The expense is minimal for a basic set-up. There’s free software (Audacity) or GarageBand if you have a Mac. You can get a couple of copies of iLife – probably a couple hundred bucks. One of our Student Media Board members – Chris Hough – has a popular podcast.
Hardware: consider USB mics, but if cost is a major concern than go with what fits your budget.  M-Audio has a setup called their podcast studio; it includes a microphone, stand, all cables and a convertor box (usb) – plus free software and some tips.  Price is around $150 so not too expensive for a decent microphone and everything else.  It is a great “starter” set with the only down side being you can only plug in one microphone.
Most would recommend a digital voice recorder for interviews, on the street types, sound bytes, etc.  The ones that come with software to import/record to a computer tend to be expensive.  Podcasters with iPods get a Griffin iMic for the voice recorder.  Then all you have is the cost of the mic, about $20.
MacMall had a couple of pages of podcasting “packages” with mics, digital recorders, etc. You might look at their web site for some ideas:
http://www.macmail.com/
BSW has bundled “Podcast Packages,” that start under $200. Link:
http://www.bswusa.com/promo_more.asp?promo=69&cat=1
And there was also the option mentioned in my last email offered to me by a fellow adviser:
”Purchase Rangemaster transmitter(s) and install them on the highest, well grounded, rooftop around.  feed it from the CATV system using a TV modulator ($700-2500) and a demodulator (or even a broken VCR with a good TV tuner).  Simple studio package around a Autogram minimix 8 might cost you $5000.  Basically, other than labor costs (which could be a much bigger $) you should be able to get on with AM and CATV for under $10,000.  Add a single stream computer feeding Live635 and you’re done.”

Thank you for your continued support of Owl Radio.

Owl Radio Update: 7-10-06
Everyone,
Here’s the latest info on Owl Radio –
We’ve decided to go with Live365. As discussed, they offer a practical, manageable and affordable solution to bandwidth and support issues. Two packages are possibilities; The “Premium Package P100” is $14.95/ month (there is also a New accounts start up of about $100 and monthly costs of $100-300 depending on the number of listeners) with 100 MB. Additional space, have more options, including better stats and the ability to do a live broadcast in addition to the “On Demand Audio” option. (To do a live broadcast, we will need a computer to act as a server to get your live signal over to Live365 for rebroadcast.) But I know our students will want live broadcasts!
Complete information is available here:
http://radio.about.com/library/weekly/aa013003b.htm
And here:
http://www.live365.com/pro/education.html
Listeners may use the Live365 free player (actually, almost any player) and iTunes to listen in, or go to the website. Podcasts will certainly be a part of Owl Radio, as wells as other formats, both live and remote. KSU Athletics will certainly ask us to be the official voice of the Owls. Students in the student center can hear it through the building’s sound system and those in the dorms can pick up Owl Radio on their radios or online (we’re looking to piggyback on the Comcast cable). Possibilities are endless.
The hardware & software list has been forwarded to IT and PTD. On campus, ITS makes all computer decisions  – they suggested Intel Core Duo iMacs. Now it’s in the laps of PTD for final recommendations and approval. Once approved I will initiate the purchasing process. Below is some info that may ease your concerns a bit from the CBI list serve.
The studio plans and work request are with KSU’s Facilities & Planning department, though the window and on air light have been fast tracked. It will still be in the old intramurals office, at the bottom of the stairs in the student center.
The KSU Student Media Board will be meeting next month to review and approve the bylaws, station manual, training, and to work out how the station manager and program director will be selected.
I still am aiming for broadcasting by this August or September – and I have PTD’s support in this. As things come up, I promise to keep you all posted. I look forward to working with all of you – and hearing your voice on the radio!
OWL Radio Update: 9-6-06
Our equipment needs have cleared the final hurdle – they’ve been approved by IT and PTD and have been successfully bid out by KSU’s procurement office yesterday. Five different companies (not counting Apple for the Mac equipment) won the bid and the equipment, software and furniture are now being purchased.
For those of you who may not know, the studio will be in the old Intramural office, student center 171. Construction has not yet begun in this space, but we will still broadcast from this office even if it is not completed.
Please do not contact me concerning positions or applying yet – operational aspects of Owl Radio are still being worked out. We hope to be actually broadcasting within the next two months – at that time, this Facebook group will be notified as to how to get involved.
Thanks for all your support! Ed

Owl radio Update: 12-7-06
First the bad news. Thanks to the joys of state institutions, bureaucracy, and computerized procurement systems, equipment delivery has been agonizingly slow. The 50 plus items that made up OWL Radio’s initial equipment list (software, hardware, furniture, etc) were awarded to 8 vendors and further brokered to other suppliers.

KSU has no central receiving, and most of the equipment was delivered to the wrong offices and refused by staff that didn’t know what the heck it was. Some of the equipment was sent back and redelivered and again refused several times.

The good news. All but 4 or 5 items are now received and inventoried. As soon as the remaining equipment is in the studio, PTD (our Presentation Technology Department) will set everything up and we will contact Live365 to activate our stream.

Shortly after we will announce the “grand opening” of OWL Radio, and training, format – and your place in KSU’s radio station will be discussed in earnest. Until then, please be patient and I will keep you posted!

OWL Radio Update: 1-16-07

All but two items have been tracked down (see earlier post) and received. Student Center 171 (the future studio) is having trash removed (you have no idea) and being cleaned. Once this is done, PTD (our Presentation Technology Department) is scheduled to set everything up.
Is that light at the end of the tunnel I see? Naw…

Studio construction: Between 2005 and 2007, Charles E. Choc was an Audio-Visual Technician and Programmer for KSU (and a production assistant with The Sentinel when he was a student there). As such, he was the sole designer and engineer for Owl Radio. These are his recollections.

“I have a random assortment of feelings and recollections about my small role in the advent of Owl Radio, some more pertinent than others. I recall a sense of jealousy and, at the same time, excitement for the students who’d (hopefully) be utilizing what we’d put together. There was no track record, only possibility…

Charles E. Choc, Owl Radio’s designer and engineer.

[As a matter of fact, I daydreamed about being a tad younger and a lot more confident, envisioning what it would be like for me to have my own little 1-hour slot wherein I subjected the innocent, unsuspecting ears of my peers to whatever crazy shit I happened to be into at the moment]

My Involvement:
While possessing some familiarity with electronics of various stripes, I really didn’t have any formal training or education with pro studio equipment. I was, however, the most amateurish of “bedroom producers”, having put together a small home studio where I privately created electronic music that I ultimately, mercifully spared the rest of humanity from ever actually hearing.

This hobby of mine, really, is what drove Karl (Aldag), my then-boss and director of what-was-at-the-time-called-PTD, to suggest that I spearhead the design and engineering of the project. His belief in my capacity to succeed is the “why” behind my involvement, I’d say. That and the fact that Tres (Little) left PTD shortly before, rendering me the resident “studio engineer” (I use the term loosely).

The rest, as they say, is history. I tried to put together a system I’d be proud of and would be anxious to use myself, one that would prove sufficiently expandable & flexible and was as “future-proofed” as possible. Hopefully history judges me kindly.”

Owl Radio’s first staffers sign the wall in the back of the studio. This is still a tradition carried on by each year’s managers and directors.

OWL Radio Update: 2-22-07!!


Oh, glorious day! We are incredibly, finally, happily close to broadcasting. Really. But before you contact me about joining, please read this post all the way through.
All equipment has been received. Student Center 171 (the future studio) has been cleaned, PTD is putting it all together, and Telecommunications and ITS are installing the necessary phone & cable connections.
Facility Planning should be over this week to finalize construction plans. The studio is being painted this weekend. PTD and I are looking into sound isolation issues (and trying to figure out where the money is going to come from – our original budget is all but tapped out).
(BTW, someone already stole the OWL radio sign – if you know who it was, punch ’em for me)
Live 365 has been contacted and we’re completing the paperwork for the Pro-Broadcast package; activation takes 2 days.
The Student Media Board is meeting one week from today to finalize position descriptions, requirements, the selection process, and a manual & training program to get us started. Once this is done, we will announce the start of OWL and the application process.
PUH-leaze do not contact me about how to get involved. We have all been working long days for the station and answering the same questions over and over again takes away from actually getting the job done.
I understand the excitement – you all are the reason I’ve worked so hard to bring student broadcasting to KSU. But until the official announcement is made and the application process advertised (2 – to 3 weeks tops. MAYBE less), there is really not much for students to do. But believe me, you will have your hands full once we are up and running!
Thanks for your patience, everyone! Ed

WE’RE LIVE!!
Well, sorta. You can actually listen to us at:
http://www.live365.com/stations/ksuradio
You can listen through the web page, through the free Live365 Player, or iTunes. If you use the 365 Player, add us to your presets; it will increase our ratings ;-P
Basically, we’re testing the equipment; right now it’s all automated (except for a few live moments by me or the PTD staff).
I promised I would alert the Facebook Owl Radio group first, so I’m letting you know that if all goes to plan, we should announce that we are accepting applications for at least two management positions and all on-air staff. The applications will be online and I’ll be sure to let you know the URL and when its active first!
Thanks, gang – it’s been a looonnng road – but we can see the light!

Deadline for applications this Wednesday
Just a reminder:
Applications for General Manager and Program Director are now being accepted. Deadline for these 2 positions is Wednesday, March 21. Applications for On Air staff and DJs are also being accepted; there is no deadline for these positions.
Answers to Frequently Asked Questions, Online applications, and other links are at the station’s home page:
http://www.kennesaw.edu/student_life/owlradio.shtml
or
http://www.ksuradio.com/
BTW, what you hear now is one big loop, and should not be considered the “real playlist.” Once students are running the studio, the actual music should be more interesting, diverse, and representative.
Thank you for your support of KSU Student Media. If you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

A trial show was just aired, and it went great! We have some things to work out via the mics and the headphones, and we didn’t get a chance to do a call-in an put it in the air to test that, but otherwise it went so well! Once the two head positions have been filled training can begin and we will be up and running! And the training won’t take too long, ’cause the program does so much for you. We’re getting so close to the finish line I can taste it.

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!!
I promised I would let you all know first:
I am happy to announce the official “grand opening” of KSU’s newest student media organization: WKSU Owl radio. As a newcomer to KSU’s student media (part of KSU Student Media and under the umbrella of the Student Media Board) it is a work in progress. The station will require hard work and flexibility – and we need you to be patient with us.
I would like to thank everyone involved in making a KSU station a reality, especially our Presentation Technology Department, and the KSU students who displayed an amazing willingness to work hard for little in return, many of you members of this facebook group.
At least for now, OWL Radio is an Internet-only streaming radio station. You may listen to our recorded test broadcasts at:
http://www.live365.com/stations/ksuradio
You may play OWL Radio on any player, including iTunes. For iTunes, past the following URL in the ‘open stream’ pulldown menu:

DJ Applications
I apologize for the delay in getting back to everyone – please allow me to explain the reason for the delay and our current status.
Because OWL Radio is a student organization, I believe it is important that the students leading a group make the decisions and until now there has been no student leaders for the station. Applications for on air staff have been on hold, but not forgotten.
This past week the student General Manager and Program Director were selected. The student assistant (paid) position of Technical Director has been announced (http://www.kennesaw.edu/student_life/campusjobs.shtml). The OWL Radio Executive Board is now meeting to discuss operational aspects, most importantly, the training details.
We are pledged to having a training program ready by May 15. At that time, most DJ applicants will be contacted and invited to the program.
For those of you interested in an on air role with OWL Radio, please be patient with us. If you are interested in behind the scene positions and have specific radio experience (jobs, internships) or knowledge of software Adobe Audition, MegaSeg, or advanced skills at creating and maintaining websites, please feel free to contact me as to other opportunities with KSU’s radio station.
We are streaming live, but please do not confuse what you hear with the format the station will have under student direction. The music and shows you hear are for the purpose of testing the software, equipment, and the Internet stream.
Work continues at the studio. We are moving forward with sound abatement solutions and track lighting, we are purchasing remote gear for broadcasting outdoor and sporting events. Our office line and request line are now active.
Please bookmark the station’s update page for the latest information (http://www.kennesaw.edu/student_life/owlradioupdate.shtml) and if you have any idea or questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Save Internet Radio!
If you would like to support OWL Radio, please consider signing the petition.
A recent decision by the Copyright Royalty Board in Washington, DC will almost triple the licensing fees for Internet radio sites like OWL Radio.  The new royalty rates are irrationally high, more than four times what satellite radio pays and broadcast radio doesn’t pay these at all.  Left unchanged, these new royalties will kill every Internet radio site.
In response to these new and unfair fees, a new group has formed – the SaveNetRadio Coalition, a group that includes listeners, artists, labels and webcasters.  I hope that you will consider joining us.
Please sign the petition urging your Congressional representative to act to save Internet radio: http://capwiz.com/saveinternetradio/issues/alert/?alertid=9631541
Please feel free to forward this link/email to your friends – the more petitioners we can get, the better.
Understand that we are fully supportive of paying royalties to the artists whose music we play.  The issue we have with the recent ruling is that it puts the cost of streaming far out of the range of ANY webcaster’s business potential.
I hope you’ll take just a few minutes to sign the petition – it WILL make a difference. As a young industry, we do not have the lobbying power of the RIAA. You, our listeners, are by far our biggest and most influential allies.
As always, and now more than ever, thank you for your support.

Almost all the DJs are now trained, so we are actually broadcasting live, with DJs, almost everyday. But the “official” start date, with a published schedule, will be shortly after July 4. If I get more specific info, I’ll be sure to let you all know!

Ed Bonza I’m sorry to say that today OWL Radio, along with most Internet radio sites, is going off the air today, June 26, in observance of a Day Of Silence. We are doing this to bring to your attention a turn of events that threatens the existence of KSU’s new station and all of internet radio. We need your help.

Responding to the lobbying of the RIAA, an arbitration committee in Washington DC has drastically increased the licensing fees Internet radio sites must pay to stream songs. OWL Radio’s fees will triple, and are retroactive for eighteen months! Left unchanged by Congress, every day will be like today as internet radio sites start shutting down and the music dies.

A bill called the “Internet Radio Equality Act” has already been introduced in both the Senate (S. 1353) and House of Representatives (H.R. 2060) to fix the problem and save Internet radio.

KSU Radio would like to ask you to call your Congressional representatives today and ask them to become co-sponsors of the bill. It will only take a few minutes and you can find your Congresspersons and their phone numbers by entering your zip code here: http://www3.capwiz.com/saveinternetradio/issues/alert/….

Your opinion matters to your representatives – so please take just a minute to call. Visit www.savenetradio.org (http://www.savenetradio.org/) to continue following the fight to Save Internet Radio.

Now more than ever, thank you for your support.
