In this four-hour program different themes, all chosen and researched by the participating students will be transmitted in different radio formats.
1. Ignorance Is Bliss (13:00 - 13:50 CET)
Sometimes, it is better not to know the ins and outs of everything to let discoveries, experiments and dialogues happen.
That is what Hooi-Ying, Harris and Côme, three students from the Willem de Kooning Academy with very different backgrounds, discuss in a show that explores the definition of language and culture.
At the core of the discussion lies our relationship to community and art, but also why would should sometimes let go to witness something unique.

Do you catch yourself mindlessly scrolling on tik tok, discovering funny videos and new music? We do! In the Operator original show “Don’t believe the hype?!” Nick Ponsioen and Tessa Berkouwer talk about the influence of social media on the music industry. With examples from the hip-hop and techno scene they travel through their own experiences. How did social media change the music scene?
4. How Does Music Change You? (15:00 - 15:40 CET)
In this show we are going to talk about how music influences people and cultures. As three people who have a big passion for music, we understand that music is more than just some lyrics and some sounds. We are going to discuss how our favorite genres have changed movements, clothing and politics throughout the years.
We hope we can inspire you to really listen and experience your music as well.
Enjoy the show!
