A course for those who want to broadcast and feel they need some dedicated time to brush up their skills. Whether you are an experienced radio presenter, or have never done any broadcasting before and don't know your mic from your mixer, this is the course for you. Friendly and supportive, we will take things at a gentle pace and cover what you need to know. Sessions will include:
- Using portable sound recorders
- Interview techniques
- Sound editing with audacity software
- Broadcasting live in the studio
- Planning and producing a show
- Making jingles
- Being creative with radio, experimenting and having fun
Open to all, this is an inclusive group. People with disabilities are welcome.
There are six sessions, starting on Tuesday 15th November at midday.
Why are we charging for this course?
In the past we have aimed to run free training. This relies on many hours, days and weeks spent fundraising for community grants to provide this. Having talked to our members and listeners, we understand that there is demand for a lot more training, and that most people are able to pay. By charging we are able to pay our workshop leaders to run classes, and also able to cover some of the studios costs, such as licensing, insurance etc, that make this possible. We are offering a limited number of places as donation only. This is because we have radio makers who have very little money indeed. Please do not select a 'donation only' place unless you really have no way of paying the £10 half price fee.
