Learning how to start a campfire, pitch a tent, fish, and camp in the wild are things Scouts typically learn how to do, but recently some Scouts were taken out of their natural environment, the great outdoors, to tour the MAGIC 98.3 FM studio in Somerset, NJ.

It was a new and fun opportunity for the Cub Scouts, who got an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the ins and outs of what makes MAGIC 98.3 FM the great station it is.

As soon as they stepped through the door, the troop saw things that made the station unique—Rutgers University posters, a magazine cover with former Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand, and a big, shiny record on display in honor of the station’s 60th anniversary.

Chris Moore and Dave Kirby led the tours and made sure the boys got to see what a typical day is like in the world of radio.

Moore and the boys even did a little voice work in the studio, recording and playing with the sound, making the Scouts sound as squeaky as Alvin and the Chipmunks or as deep and low as Darth Vader. The Scouts had a blast trying something new.

At MAGIC 98.3 FM, Girl and Boy Scout troops have an open invitation to tour the studios and experience a fun day in the world of radio.
