WSHA COMMUNITY OUTREACH
WSHA provides considerable outreach services to the community like no other radio station in the area. WSHA can justifiably say that there is no other radio station in the Triangle Area of North Carolina that serves the community with the following outreach services as WSHA does. WSHA is committed to the community in entertainment, education and real services, and that is why WSHA was voted "The Best Radio Station" by Triangle community.
Music Jam Sessions
WSHA organizes monthly music jam sessions in partnership with area businesses for the community. Live music is provided for music lovers at locations downtown Raleigh and other locations in the Triangle area. Musicians are invited to come with their instruments and join the band that performs for the event.
Jam Sessions are designed to bring together world class musicians that live in the Triangle and beyond to jam together, in "open mic", providing a lively atmosphere to the weekend life of the community. The event is free to the public.
Radio Broadcast Production Training
This training is free to the public. All those who are interested are invited to receive instructions on how to produce radio programs and actually do a live broadcast show. For eight weeks, the staff of WSHA engages in studio instructions and training for people who have had no previous radio broadcast experience. WSHA free radio training has made it possible for some trainees to get jobs at some radio stations.
