Catching up with Kaash Paige

We were so excited to have Kaash Paige stop by our WGRL studios recently. In addition to having a hit single out, Kaash did radio as a teen as well so she made us totally comfortable behind the mic with some pro journalism tips.

Thanks Kaash for a great interview!

Dani Leigh in the WGRL Studios

Que lo que Dani Leigh! Super proud of this Dominican dancer, singer, rapper and choreographer and her recent success (after a lot of hard work). The busy musician was kind enough to swing by the WGRL studios awhile back and spent some time with our middle school journalists.

Thanks Dani for a great interview and we can’t wait to hear even more great music from you!

Talking Herstory with FM Supreme and Chicago Teens

It was amazing to meet the women and teens of Chicago’s HerStory and learn about what they do, the challenges teens face there and the work they are undertaking in the neighborhoods.
We hope to one day visit them in person and see first hand the incredible difference young girls are making in their community!

Music – Still Believe from FM Supreme

Stretch and Bobbito Talk Radio, Hip-Hop, and Life

Last session we had the good fortune to have the legendary Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia drop by the studio! It was great to hear about their adventures in music, radio and film and the groundbreaking work they did in the nineties with a radio show that started from the pure love and passion for music. We also got into the reasons we come to Girls’ Club and some of the struggles teens face. Thanks for the great interview guys! Give it a listen below and check out their continuing adventures as radio hosts now on NPR by visiting stretchandbobbito.com
