At TeenTechRadio, teenagers are running the show. It was set up by four teenagers more than a decade ago, who had the technological know-how to develop a radio station. Today, it has expanded to become a place where teens can vent all their frustrations as well as share technological developments they have encountered. Teenagers often go through difficult times and feel no-one understands them. Thus this radio station was developed by teenagers themselves; so that everyone can have a place to go where they will not feel judged.
Teenagers also have quite specific tastes in music. There are shows for musical requests; opportunities to be a one-time DJ; and shows where problems are aired and discussed (preserving the anonymity of the teenager with the problem). The radio station also provides a platform for teenagers to give a show on a specific issue, or enter into a discussion with other teenagers. Basically, it is there to help kids make the transition from adolescent to adult, as smoothly as possible.
