Kids and Radio Broad Casting

Kids and live broadcasting is a bad mix, we had a group of kids and teachers in here doing some promo work for an upcoming bike safety week, these kids were full of beans, running up and down the studio, laughing, giggling and shouting but as soon as you get them behind a microphone they freeze up and give one word answers only. It ended up being me and one of the teachers doing the talking even though the kids had a full skit written up and had been practicing it all week. But the worst came when we went to take some photos and upon leaving the studio one of the kids hit the switch and we broadcast a full 12 minutes of an empty studio, which doesnt sound to bad but its when you try and squeeze the ads that were in that 12 minutes back into the rest of the day is when the trouble starts.
