LOGAN – AJ & McCall, of Cache Valley Media Group’s 94.5 and 98.3 VFX, are broadcasting their radio show live from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the different area high schools in Cache County, Box Elder County, Franklin County and Malad.
“We started Monday doing a high school every day until all 13 high schools have been visited,” AJ said. “The first one was West Side High School, then Logan High School, and on to Green Canyon High School, Preston High School and Friday we did our show at Ridgeline High School,” he said. “The next two weeks we will visit Box Elder High School, Mountain Crest High School, Utah State University, and finish off with Bear River High School.”
The following week they will go to Malad High School, Fast Forward Charter School and end at Cache High.
The two morning DJ’s started visiting schools three years ago, when Green Canyon High School first opened its doors. The next year they went to all of the Cache Valley high schools and have been well received by the students and administrators.
Last year they started doing a spirit competition. This year will have another spirit competition, the winning school will get to pie the DJs in the face.
“I think it’s something cool for the kids,” he said. “We bring Johnny O’s Spudnuts and there are plenty to go around.”
This is the second year they’ve gone to Malad.
Preston has become like a second home for the two of them.
“We have a bunch of messages from kids and parents in Preston wanting to know if we are coming back,” AJ said. “The messages make us feel good and it helps us know they like it when we are there.”
The have started doing videos and the views have been building. As the show gains traction, they want to make bigger productions.
“We do Day on the Quad at USU, which is always fun,” AJ said. “Visiting all the schools, we hope, is starting to be a tradition for the end of summer.”
He said they will be dog tired at the end, but it’s always a fun ride.
“It’s cool to be where people listen to us on the radio,” he said. “They can see us live in their school; they get to know us on a different level.”
