Feb 13 : On February 5, 2019, for a field trip, the members of the Lourdes Central School Music Club visited Sarang 107.8, the community radio station run by St Aloysius College, Mangalore.

The members, who consisted of students from class V and VI, under the guidance of the school music teacher Mr. Roshan Cordeiro and counsellor Ms Meghana Saldanha were given a tour of the radio station by Ms Mayolla Martis, the Radio Promotional Executive of Sarang. The curious students were told that the word ‘Sarang’ stood for “Harmony of colours”. The reason behind naming it so was to indicate the significance of Mangalore’s various social, religious, linguistic, and cultural communities and their harmonious existence.

The group was then taken inside the Program Control Room where different equipments and processes of the functions of radio were explained. Though the terms and procedures seemed very technical for the students to understand, Ms Martis simplified every clarification for them. The students were also given an opportunity to record their voice in the recording room and were shown how it could be modified and blended with the music added with the help of the CUBASE software. The students were also shown the live radio room but it was occupied by a radio jockey who was performing a live show.

The field trip and the entire experience was a novel one. The students who are music aspirants conveyed their gratitude to Ms Martis for her wonderful guidance.
