The Washington Post reports on Radio Recliner, a new online radio station whose DJs are elderly residents of long-term care facilities. Professional producers help seniors record talk portions via phone and insert seniors’ selected songs amid the recorded talk, then merge the DJs’ sets together for continuous online streaming. Seniors share stories and select their favorite music, and relatives can call in with requests and dedicate songs to their isolated older loved ones. The radio station was created by a marketing company in partnership with a retirement home chain, and now includes sets from senior DJs across the country. #covid-19 #mentalhealth
