Since 2002, Kol Ramah 102.3 FM has been on the air at Camp Ramah in the Berkshires. Our award winning station includes a digitized library of popular and classic Israeli music and camp songs. With advanced digital audio recording and editing capabilities our campers and staff produce award winning podcasts and live broadcasts. The heart of our station is a 24 channel mixing board with multiple microphones, high-end broadcasting computer for playing music and jingles, and editing software for production. It also has professional CD players, which some campers still love to try out. Add to this a telephone hybrid for professional call-ins, capabilities for remote broadcasting, regular podcasts and you can be sure this translates into a lot of fun for everyone!
As you walk through the different “neighborhoods” of camp, up on the B side main road near the agam and amphitheater and up on A side by Bet Degel Alef, one is greeted by campers’ live broadcasts and popular Israeli songs all day long.
Of course, this summer we will continue what was very popular in the past, 24 hour streaming so that anyone, anywhere can tune in to the live broadcast of Radio Kol Ramah using this website and our mobile app for Android and Apple devices.
For 2018, our 16th summer in camp, we are thrilled to have a native Hebrew speaker radio specialist with us in the studio. Shay Ron Mizrachi, A member of the 2018 Mishlachat Staff, lives in Ra’anana. Shay has been producing music for the last 5 years, and hopes to produce fun and interesting radio content with the campers. You will hear his voice throughout the summer.
