Entry-Level Orientation at KFJC

The Entry-Level Orientation at KFJC (previously called Radio 90A) is the gateway through which all KFJC DJs must pass. After successful completion of this course, a potential DJ is placed into formal training program which varies by individual but typically combines one-on-one training in an on-air DJ, graveyard (2A to 6A) shifts and then certification.

The orientation is typically taught on Wednesday evenings. Check notices at the station (Buildign 6200, Room 6202) for times and room for the orientation.
