On the Air: EAA Radio

During EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2005 - 
We asked people to respond to the question "Where are you listening to EAA Radio?"
The response was overwhelming - people listened from all over the world!

They’re a retired stay-at-home dad, a former engineer and a college professor. One flies charter airplanes, another works for a home equipment store, and others attend college.

But during EAA Air Venture Oshkosh they are the voices and talents behind EAA Radio.

Broadcast 24 hours a day on AM 1210, the volunteers give of their time to bring to EAA convention-goers the latest programming information, the scuttlebutt about aviation personalities, live coverage of the daily air show and Theater in the Woods, and more.
New equipment has helped bring the station newfound reliability this year.

Fareed Guyot, of Milwaukee, coordinates EAA Radio, making sure they have the staff and equipment to do the job.

“The modern version of EAA Radio started in 1996,” he says. “But that year there was no programming. Just a mixer in the comm center and someone making announcements.”

Jim Grey cues playback files for EAA Radio. Most interviews are now recorded and edited on computers, eliminating tape decks and splicing blocks. The computer automation also allows the station to operate 24 hours a day.
  

Since then, EAA Radio has moved to a new home along the flightline, built some studios and begged and borrowed for better equipment.

“We’re good at slowly acquiring equipment,” Guyot says. “It’s beginning to really feel like a radio station.”

But more important, they’re sounding like a radio station, with live interviews conducted from 7 to 11 a.m., followed by pre-recorded interviews done on the field and in the station from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. At that time, they switch to coverage of the daily air show, and later, the nightly Theater in the Woods program. Overnight, automation allows them to air previous interviews.

“We’re always trying to improve,” Guyot says. “We have a very small focus group of people who camp with us. They wake up with EAA Radio and let us know how we’re doing.”

Guyot persuaded Jim Gray, a friend and radio professor at St. Cloud, Minnesota, to join the ranks of volunteers this year. “I’m the only EAA Radio volunteer who actually works in radio,” he says. He’s provided some training to the volunteers to bring more professionalism to the station.

“They always joke and ask if they can get college credit for doing this,” Gray says. “I just tell them they don’t want to pay those fees.”

Mel Futrell, of Los Angeles, is EAA Radio’s first female radio personality. She particularly enjoys interviews with EAA’s international visitors. And with it being streamed over the web, visitors can go home and share the interview with their families, she says.

Dave Leuter, of Chester County, Pennsylvania, remembers the early years of EAA Radio. “The first year I was locked in a room without windows where the PA amplifiers were and I basically read AirVenture Today over the air,” he recalls. It was difficult to get people to come in the studio for interviews. “But when we started getting press credentials that changed; when people see the press badge, they are willing to talk.”

Of course it doesn’t hurt that Leuter loves to talk himself. “Being on the radio is a dream. It is a lot of fun.”

Rob Sturgeon of Portage, Indiana, agrees. As the roving reporter, he gets to do things like a walk-through of the C-5A Galaxy, while the crew explains where everything is. 

“There are really exciting people here,” he says. “I love being able to move around the field and meet people from different counties who have different airplanes. But I also enjoy talking to people who haven’t been to AirVenture before. They’re so in awe.”

Reporter Rob Sturgeon interviews an EAA AirVenture Oshkosh pilot. Aside from live interviews conducted in-studio, reporters comb the convention site to gather other interesting stories from AirVenture. EAA Radio broadcasts live from studios located just east of the FAA Control Tower.

Barbara Lawrence, of Racine, Wisconsin, says occasionally a scheduled interview doesn’t show. Then the staff just wings it and “babbles.”

Chris Fitzsimmons, of Elgin, Illinois, has been volunteering as a technician for EAA Radio for eight years. Although Fitzsimmons says he wouldn’t want to make radio his life, he does enjoy his week “vacation” at AirVenture.

“This convention wouldn’t exist without volunteers,” he says. “It’s the people and the love of aviation that brings me back each year.”
While Lawrence agrees that the people bring her back each year, there is one big benefit for working for EAA Radio, she says. “You get to sit in air conditioning.”


Thanks to all of you who are listening to EAA Radio! We enjoy your comments and keep them coming! Its fabulous to see how many of you are "attending" AirVenture over the web!

I'm from Columbus, OH. I just returned from my first trip to Oshkosh last night and am missing it already! I had a great time and learned so much.

We WILL be there in person next year.  - P. Smith

I'm listening from my office in St. Charles, MO. Thank you for implementing and delivering the webcast audio. While I would have preferred attending AirVenture in person, sometimes other matters take precedence. I would like to tell my embarrassing "War of the Worlds" moment, when I left the webcast during John Mohr's performance and then returned to the siren blaring, parts falling off performance of Kent Pietsch on Wednesday. As co-workers gathered to listen to the tragedy and my ranting, it became apparent that we were listened to Mohr's comedy performance-- Boy, oh, boy, was I fooled and did my co-workers rib me. Again many thanks for supplying the glimpse at AirVenture 2005. - N. Hudson

Friday (07/29/05) afternoon I came across the AirVenture-Radio web-link and listened to the air show from Beaverton, Oregon. My work schedule prevented my attendance this year, but my father and brother are there. Providing this media is simply excellent. I get to view the pictures that are posted daily while listening, and can visualize the aerobatic maneuvers that are being performed. This wonderful broadcast helps me feel more connected to my immediate family and my extended EAA family. It is the next best thing to being there. A big thank you to all of the EAA members and volunteers for providing this fabulous web-cast!!! J. Hoak, EAA # 683690

I had to come home to Wisc. Rapids, WI Fri. after spending 6 days at EAA, but was delighted to find you on the internet. It is hard to get back to the other world after being there.

I am listening from Walton, Kentucky. I have attended Arlington and Oshkosh in the past and listening to "EAA Radio" is a great way to fight the depression of not being there. Great idea, please keep it for AirVenture '06. - P. Mitchell

Dear EAA Radio, thank you for being there!!! When I am not at Oshkosh I listen in Virginia and when I am at Oshkosh I listen on the field. It is especially nice to listen to the “theatre in the woods” programs. Please know that Oshkosh Radio is an important resource. -  R. McCallister

As I listened to the feed from today's (Sunday's) air show, we are on the  Delta Queen Steamship Line's paddlewheel boat Mississippi Queen on the Cumberland River in Tennessee. We flew down to Nashville from Air Venture 2005 in our RV-6A yesterday and boarded the ship yesterday afternoon. We will end the cruise on Saturday and fly on back to our home in Hidden Valley Airpark in Texas.- H. D. Walrath, EAA Life Member 93116

We are listening from Austin, MN. We just got home from AirVenture and I wanted to listen to the air show. I think EAA Radio on the WEB is AWESOME ! Even though I could only be in OSH for 1 full day , I was able to keep track of what I was missing and attend Theatre in the Woods from home. Thank you for a great weekend and thank you for AirVenture 2005.  E. & S. Wells, EAA #0286651

Hello from Ellensburg, WA. My wife and I were on pins and needles listening to the Lindy awards last night! Thanks to EAA Radio 1210AM we were able to tune in and hear the play by play of the ceremony! My father and the rest of the family (I would like to think I had a big part) took 12 years restoring a '57 Cessna 182A (6119B). The family is different as a result of this huge undertaking. It was huge because mom and dad worked their family business full time and extra time, putting 3 kids through college and still finding the time to work on the plane. On the family plot, we built a runway, hanger, downdraft paint booth, and more to make the project the best we could. That plane took a lot of heart and I think maybe a piece of dad's soul. That plane has a piece of all the family in it in some manner. So, long story short, while I could not expect a play by play from my folks who are cell phone phobic, I found the next BETTER thing and relied on the super volunteers of EAA Radio to bring me the results of what EAA airplane lovers thought of the project. Thank you EAA Radio for making it possible for me to share the fun in receiving a bronze Lindy. (contemporary; overall custom? if I remember...). Respectfully - K. Dwight
