Radio Hillwood — Let's Rock

Student: Zach and Rubina

We now have Radio Hillwood, and you can play the roll of Hillwood_DJ. 

As great as the invention of the iPod has been, sometimes we forget just how pleasurable it is to listen to the radio. With the Web site Songza, you get to have the best of both worlds, as you can program your very own show, and listen to your friends’ stations, too—all for free.

It’s remarkably easy to set up: Simply sign in, and you can begin picking from Songza’s (rather impressive) 8,000,000 song choices. But if you are feeling a little bit more adventurous and ready to stray from your own playlist, you can collaborate or listen in with friends or co-workers or even strangers. The site suggests other people’s playlists , and, perhaps best of all, you can see what songs are queued up to play next, so unlike regular radio stations, there can be no disappointing surprises.

Let's talk about using this service in class -- it is a big responsibility, as we MUST only select music that is appropriate for the Hillwood community. What does that mean? Let's talk in class. You two will be the first two Hillwood DJs.
