The mystery of hidden broadcasts on FM radio! 

Do big FM radio stations transmit hidden broadcasts inside their radio signal?  

Yes, some do; and not just the big stations. Even here at KVCB; our station broadcasts nine separate services for different purposes all encoded into our radio waves. Most services are designed for the public to receive with the right equipment, but a couple of them are "secret" and just for us! :)

Who are the Work-ahead creative art students?

Pictured --  Saturday creative artists going for the ultimate challenge!

Some kids want to be ahead of the class. They want to advance as far as their talents take them. These are the students that crave an extra challenge. Is there a way to move ahead fast?  OH YES!!!

The VCS Work-Ahead Sessions are a popular way to advance quickly through the achievement levels. They're free mini-lessons weekdays before school and on Saturdays for elementary kids.  after school sessions are reserved for middle and high school. Students get to check off requirements for each page in their conservatory books. Each checked-off book advances the student to the next level.

Advanced levels come with greater opportunities.

Level IV gets solo privileges in the VCS Explorer Ensemble. Level VI artists get to join the VCS Radio Symphony. Level VII artists get to join the VCS Radio Jazz Ensemble. Level VIII is honors level and will award our creative artists 5.0 weighted GPA for high school.

As always -- no need to sign up -- just drop in. 

Here's the Schedule:
