Music Department Internship

Music Department Internship Sara Finke-- http://www.flickr.com/photos/sara_photos/

KDHX DJs are volunteers who are given complete creative control over their own shows - the music department does not make decisions about what the DJs will play. The primary role of the music department is to maintain a library of releases, new and old, for DJs to use for their programs, to facilitate in-studio performances and interviews, generate web content, and to improve the servicing we get from record labels.

Location: KDHX (3524 Washington Ave. St. Louis, MO 63103)

Supervised by: Nick Acquisto, Music Director

Time Commitment: 15-20 hours per week, 200 hour per semester (or as specified by your school’s curriculum).

Qualifications: Strong knowledge of music across multiple genres. Strong writing skills. Pleasant phone demeanor. College or other radio experience preferred. For more information, contact Scott Bahan, Volunteer Coordinator, at 314-973-6194 or by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
