three are required and if you missed one in the past here is your chance to catchup.

FCC rules for public radio, fines potentials. (This is a dry class but the most important!)

Class III - Intro to Voice / Demo Tape Instructions
A show sample/demo (someone will help you) will be required for board of directors
KCHW has several other areas to volunteer in and a full list is available on the
home page via link in the first column at KCHW.org
Those interested in Music driven shows ... If you are thinking of a genre specific
show we would prefer music shows that do not duplicate our current live shows of
Blues, Jazz and Classical. We have a lot of interest in Country but have yet to find
someone interested in providing that. Also, it's worth mentioning that Rap Music
is not presently allowed due to the majority of it's content and attitude. Country
and all other genres are wide open, from classic rock, to comedy to mashup to radio
theater to reggae.
Those interested in Talk shows ... at this time we have not been able to purchase
a broadcast delay and due to other necessary equipment purchases, one is not in the
foreseeable future. Live calls are not an option for a talk show (or any show) but
a pre-recorded and edited show may be a possibility. Also, anyone with a political
agenda, radical views, conspiracy theorists or a political affiliation such as Republican,
Democrat, Libertarian etc. should know that there is a chance you won't meet our
expectations and philosophy of neutrality and education. Thus, your show may not
make it through the vetting process or if deemed polarizing at any time, removed
from the air. Basically, we are searching for true open-minded public radio moderators
for when a delay is purchased. Rush Limbaugh / Al Franken types should probably not
A few of our rules:
Chewelah Community Radio is a serious endeavor and radio broadcasting is laden with
rules, perils and fines (public broadcasting like KCHW is even more scrutinized than
commercial radio). It is also a huge investment of our time and yours so please consider
the following: We will not indulge an individual who cannot follow FCC / KCHW rules
and must protect this public resource above all. Shock and Awe (blue humor) broadcasting,
being crude for attention, illicit references or self serving agendas are not something
tolerated at KCHW radio.
Hygiene, we work in close quarters and good hygiene is required at all times.
No felonies on record (FCC requirement)
No Alcohol, narcotics or any street drops while representing KCHW
Membership is required for continuation after the first class and to use KCHW
facilities ($25 - $35 annually)
We wish to simply educate, inform, and entertain. I look forward to your participation!
Please reply with your area of interest and availability if you would like to attend.
