A Colorado community radio station is pairing live events and podcasting for fresh sounds.

KSJD in Cortez, Colo. launched the Raven Narratives, a series of live storytelling events. The rules are straightforward:

  • Stories are told, not read. No notes are allowed on stage.
  • Stories should be true, not fiction.
  • Tell only one story
  • The story should have a beginning, middle and end.
  • The story fits within the time limit of 8-10 minutes.
  • The story should relate meaningfully to the theme.
  • No stand-up routines, rants or essays.
  • No explicit endorsements of an organization or individual.

The community radio station has, in turn, made recordings of the events into a killer podcast. Hear for yourself at Soundcloud, Stitcher or iTunes. It’s an outstanding example of what community radio stations can do.
