Larry Berger and the staff at SLB are just AWESOME. They not only care about community, they've been become intricate of it, involving our youth, let them have a voice, in the Neighborhood Voices series. SLB also provides a skill set for youth....their isn't enough accolades to describe this wonderful non-profit
It is great to have a show in Pittsburgh that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Keep it up Larry!!
SLB is a great community asset to the New Concord, Ohio WMCO listening community. I'm so glad it is syndicated live week-to-week! A wonderful program to educate, entertain, and inform.
This radio program, SLB, has down to earth content which is relevant to a broad spectrum of listeners. It also appeals to the younger listing audience as well, featuring local talent as well as national musical talent; all delivered in a very personal way be the staff.
I give it a 5 out of 5 or a 10 out of 10, depending on which scale you want to use.
Sincerely, J. Paul Basinger
The Saturday Light Brigade is a great radio station. As a listener it provides a variety of different styles. It also gives many young performers a chance to display their talents. As a family this station is very important to us in our children's development as future musicians.
Love listening to this show every week & they bring up lots of interesting things going on in Pittsburgh especially about education
SLB Radio Productions, Inc inspired me at the beginning my own journey toward capturing the voices of children and sharing their great stories. I discovered them during a visit to Pittsburgh. Their studio space at the Children's Museum and their partnerships with schools and others in the area was truly inspiring. Their radio station and sound projects, which includes stories and interviews recorded by children, are of the highest quality. When I discovered their mission, I knew my own passion for capturing children's stories was valued and important work. I can't thank you enough SLB Radio Productions, keep on sharing young voices!
Been listening since I was a kid with my uncle. Now listening in Minneapolis online every Saturday.
SLB radio is where I listen when I want to hear non commercial national and local singer-songwriters. It needs a wider audience so new listeners will know how wonderful their programs really are. Their live guests are great, especially the young artists. As if their radio shows aren't enough, SLB also provides opportunities for young people to learn about the radio business.
I had a wonderful time being interviewed by the youth and getting to know them better when they visited my office to hear more about my business.The staff was awesome and very knowledgable.
SLB has been a terrific experience for my kids. They have had the honor and opportunity to play their music on air and enjoyed learning about the behind-the-scenes secrets and hard work that goes into it. My oldest also was given voice a few years ago for MLK Day to express his thoughts on civil rights and have a discussion with peers. I hope young people all over Pittsburgh know about this resource and enjoy and appreciate it.
Larry Berger and staff are welcoming, encouraging and really just warm and friendly in keeping with the best-of-Pittsburgh traditions.
The Saturday Light Brigade is a true treasure to Pittsburgh. The opportunity it provides to children and the enlightenment and entertainment it gives to listeners of the show is invaluable.
My children were on the show almost 2 years ago and are still thrilled to talk about it. They came away from it with new confidence due mostly to Larry Berger's adept handling of the interview and their performance. We are most grateful.
Larry, Ricki and their staff have succeeded in taking a long-standing radio show and transforming it into a platform for the nurturing and development of the creative impulses resident in children, providing them an outlet and a path for individual and collective growth that has, and will, positively impact the youth and communities of Pittsburgh for generations to come.
SLB Radio has done great work teaching children and youth how to share their stories through the medium of radio. SLB staff is highly skilled and knows how to work effectively with children and youth. I particularly enjoy the Green Compass and Crossing Fences projects. (Full disclosure - I work for a foundation that supported those projects.)
One of the highlights to my week! This broadcast got me through one of the most difficult years of my life. Every week I knew at least one day would start with laughter. That was Saturday, when I could tune in to SLB and joke, smile, test myself, and sing! Thank you SLB!
SLB Radio is an amazing non-profit that really understands what "grass roots" means. It encourages participation at every level, and diversity of viewpoints and content creators isn't just a line in their mission statement -- it's something they live. And along the way, they create great, entertaining local content.
Long may Larry, Rikki and their crew thrive!
My parents first started listening to SLB around the time I was born in 1978 and though they didn't participate, we all had fun listening when we could get it tuned in. Since having a family of my own, and the advances of technology, we've been able to listen and participate more with the puzzles and games, even after moving a few states away. We love SLB because, not only do they have quality family programming and a positive impact on the community, but they take the time to give everyone special attention and allow artists, no matter their age, to show their skills and talents. SLB adds a richness to our lives through music that we may have not otherwise known about. They also enhance our children's education through learning about history and community. SLB always gets our weekend off to a great start!
SLB Radio Productions, Inc. does amazing work in the Pittsburgh region. Its radio show, the Saturday Light Brigade has been on the air since the 1970s. I moved to Pittsburgh in 1996, and started listening to SLB that year. Since that time, I married and had children. My wife was also a fan of SLB, and our two children have enjoyed SLB since birth. Both of my children have been able to participate in the on-air show, in different ways. Mr. Berger has graciously allowed my kids, and many others, to get a behind-the-scenes view of how a radio show works. I'm also aware that SLB Radio Productions has projects in addition to the SLB radio show that provide valuable learning experiences to people from all parts of the community - I would be excited for my children to get involved in these opportunities.
Regardless of how I'm doing on any particular Saturday, SLB is always a beacon of hope, peace, and joy, both to and from our community. SLB Radio Productions is one of the best parts of our community.
