List all days and times that you WILL be available to DJ on KJHK. For example, if you're available from Midnight to 9am and from 3pm until 10pm every Sunday, please put that information in the box above. List all days and time frames you're good for. Please note that if you have no broadcast experience or experience with KJHK, you should expect to work an overnight shift your first semester (that's a two hour shift that falls between 2am-6am). We have over a hundred applicants for shifts each semester, and these spots are competitive; list only what you are willing to commit to.
Having little or no broadcast experience will not prevent you from working at KJHK...we just like to know your history. If you've not worked at the station before, simply put "New to KJHK" in the box above.
Why do you want to participate in KJHK? What do you expect to gain from working at KJHK? What skills make you a good candidate for being a DJ at the station?
In your opinion, what are KJHK's roles on campus? Within Lawrence? Within culture? What attributes make a radio station worth listening to?
Based on the program(s) you're applying to host, outline a setlist of 10-15 songs/artists you'd would play. If you're applying for multiple programs, include one setlist for each type of program you're applying for.
We receive over a hundred applications every semester. With so many people wanting to do shows, what sets you apart? You may want to provide us with what you could bring to the type of show(s) you're applying for.
KJHK's mission is to enrich the KU and Lawrence communities by engaging, informing, and entertaining through means that go beyond programming. How will you personally help fulfill our mission?
What is your special program idea? Describe in detail the show's content, how you would present it, and why it deserves to be a part of KJHK programming. What does your show offer that KJHK currently lacks? Include a list of appropriate artists/albums if it's a music special program, or a description of format if it's a talk show, etc.
Your chances of getting a better shift are improved if you can supply a voice check recording clip for KJHK to hear. The clip doesn't need to include music, but this recording should contain a sample of your own voice speaking as you would on-air. Sample voice checks can include a concert calendar reading, a back-announcement of a hypothetical set of music...be creative! Please LIMIT FILE UPLOAD SIZE TO 3MB.
All successful applicants are required to attend a monthly meeting. Are you prepared to organize your work and school schedules in order to attend KJHK All-Staff meetings? Meetings occur on the first Wednesday of every month at 5:15pm in the Kansas Union.
To be a part of KJHK, no matter what staff you're on, you must know and abide by the rules and regulations KJHK sets forth. This is vital to the station's continued existence! Please review the KJHK Handbook, available at www.kjhk.org in the "About KJHK" section of the site. Violation of station rules may result in suspension or termination.
All KJHK employees must respect the station by maintaining its cleanliness. This includes picking up trash, refiling music, and generally maintaining a neat and efficient work environment. Do you agree to keep KJHK a clean, professional environment every time you are at KJHK?
By electronically 'signing' your name above, you agree (1) to work within the spirit and framework of the KJHK Constitution as presented in the KJHK Handbook, (2) to perform the duties required of the position to which you are hired, and (3) that you will abide by the KJHK Participation Contract, also found within the KJHK Handbook. Intention misrepresentation of facts on this application - or any other breach of this agreement - will constitute grounds for suspension or termination from KJHK.
