Last week, KDFC (and KUSC, our sister station in Southern California) kicked off the #MakeSomeJoy challenge, asking listeners to upload videos of themselves performing Beethoven’s Ode to Joy using crafty homemade instruments to Facebook and Instagram with the hashtags #MakeSomeJoy #KDFC #KUSC. By the way, there’s still time to join the fun. In the meantime, enjoy some of our favorites so far.

Hi KUSC. I've been a listener since Carl Princey days when you were KFAC. You've traveled with me my entire adult like and I am very grateful. Enjoy my bit of a video. #MakeSomeJoy #KUSC #KDFC
