I’ve also been freelancing with Fire Radio for Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch so here’s a sample news bulletin.
I’ve got a show on Hot Radio 102.8FM (The FM part is the most important bit!)
Some of you may already be aware of this but as last week’s show was the first I got carried away with other things and completely forgot to promote it – so chances are you haven’t heard any of it yet.
You can catch me Thursday evenings between 10pm and midnight, for a lot of people that might be in the taxi on your to a night out, or a cheeky listen before hitting the pillow.
The show runs quite differently to my Nerve Radio show, I’ve cleaned up my act when it comes to gay related puns – they don’t even have my surname in the jingles!
My regular features include chain reaction and cover to cover, I’d tell you what they are but I wouldn’t it be great if you listened in and you found out for yourself!
So you can tune in on 102.8 FM in the Poole, Bournemouth and the surrounding areas or you can listen online at hot1028.co.uk
It is a video showing what Elaine’s life is like now she is out of institutional care and living within the Poole and Bournemouth community. It was the first time any of us had worked with someone with learning disabilities and made for an interesting and important learning experience.
Also we were pleased to be treated like a production company in our efforts, so as well as being paid for this production we also understood we needed to follow a client’s brief.
Although we all helped each other, our roles were roughly:
Director: Charlotte Gay
Editor: Alice Simons-Denville
Camera: Ben Tyrer
Sound: James Hibberd
For more information on Elaine’s life, I’ve written a small online feature about people with learning disabilities living in the community here.
It has come to that time of year again when Nerve Radio joins Bournemouth and Poole’s FM airwaves.
For two weeks Nerve Radio will be broadcasting on 87.7FM and through www.nervemedia.org.uk
Before getting into the full swing of university round two, I went on a week’s work placement at The Bay Radio in Poole.
The lovely Paul Stevens allowed me to, not only be the sole news reader, but also as a guest producer for the week.
I’ve posted a copy of my best news bulletins, traffic and travel, and stock market updates, and also of me just featuring on the show.
I plan to come back to The Bay once I know my timetable – but perhaps on drive time with Sean Burns, 5am will not be tempting me in a hurry.
