Programme Maker Information

Once you sign up to make a regular show you will receive:

Free technical training

  • Training sessions take an hour, and you’ll probably need between two and four of them depending on your current level of technical confidence.

Promotion

  • We record a 30-second promo for your show, to be broadcast on a minimum of seven occasions over the three days leading up to your show.
  • We produce ads for any programme sponsors, to be played during your show.
  • We feature our shows on this website.
  • We can assist you to create promotional material for your show, and to distribute it widely (eg: posters, graphic images for this website).

Access to the station’s recording facilities

  • We can do some recording work for your programme, to be booked in advance with the studio engineer (extra studio pre-recording time is charged per hour).
  • We can organise pre-recording of some episodes of your show so you can keep them in reserve in case of emergency

Internet Radio

  • We live-stream through this website 24 hours a day – meaning we can be heard worldwide.

Podcasts

  • Podcasts of the latest episodes of your programme can be streamed and  downloaded from this website – meaning listeners from here and around the world can listen at a time convenient to them.
