Last year we had no idea what we were getting into.
The annual KCRW Radio Race gives you 24 hours, a surprise theme, and just 4 minutes to tell a radio story. Teams compete from all of the United States and even the world, racing around their communities to find a story, edit, throw it all out and start again, and sometime in the final 23rd hour submit a polished piece.
We cobbled together a team of the folks building WBTV-LP and set off to use each of our skills to make some damn good (yet short) radio about an amazing local program called the Good Food Truck. Take a listen…

The WBTV-LP Team
We had a blast this year and look forward to many more years of radio making for this race and for our local community when we get on air this fall!
