Take out your earbuds. Move over, Spotify. You’re so old school, iTunes.
Staples students are embracing a cutting-edge new technology: radio.
But not just any radio: a 1940s-style radio drama.

It’s a phenomenal event — and a great undertaking. High school students incorporate live drama skills, sound effects and radio production into an entertaining, uplifting performance.
You can hear it locally on 90.3 FM. Or — in a modern twist unavailable during the Truman administration — you can listen to the livestream anywhere in the world. Just click on www.wwptfm.com, then go to “Listen Live” and “Click here to access the district stream.”
It is indeed a wonderful life!
