As part of our community commitment, we have joined up with the ISSP (Independent State Schools Partnership), to launch a innovative opportunity for local school students to get involved in radio.
Students volunteer every Wednesday afternoon at the station. They are able to get involved in all aspects of the station including:
- Visiting the patients and staff on the wards to get song requests
- Planning, producing and presenting programmes
- Learning the technical side (using the mixer, Myriad systems, editing programmes
As part of the scheme, the current students from St Joseph’s Catholic High School and Slough & Eton, have created two production companies, and are working hard to research, create, record and edit a music based show and a documentary.
So watch this space, as the new generation of presenters are “live and loud!”
