Radio station offers free training workshops

Bradley Stoke Radio

Bradley Stoke Radio, which is gearing up to broadcast on FM over the Community Festival in June, is to stage a free training course in radio production this month.

The hands-on course, run as three two-hour sessions held over a period of two weeks, will cover how to create features, jingles, adverts and how to produce a short radio show.

The course is FREE to members of Bradley Stoke Community Radio Association (BSCRA). To find out more and book a space contact or call Southern Brooks Community Partnership on 01454 86 8570.

Bradley Stoke Radio is looking for more members – if you would like to get involved there are lots of opportunities and working on the radio station can be extremely rewarding. Membership is open to all and costs £5 for adults, with a concessionary rate of £2.50 for senior citizens, students and the unemployed.

BSCRA committee member Lucy Smith said:

“We were really excited to announce that we have funding for the station, but now we need more help to get on the air.”

“We have a small group of committee members who have raised the money for equipment and found premises for the studio, but we now need more volunteers to help produce shows, conduct interviews and run the station.”

“No experience or skills are required as training is available. We welcome members of all ages and simply ask for enthusiasm and a willingness to get involved in your community.”

    The first training course has now been filled and oversubscribed in just 6 days since Bradley Stoke Journal ran this article. We will be running more courses before going on air so please do make yourselves known to us and your name will be placed on a waiting list for the next course.

    The very latest news is that Bradley Stoke Community Radio Association is now looking for a new Treasurer. Clive Latter had been with the Association since it’s inception but has now left Bradley Stoke for pastures new – Luton to be precise.
    We wish him well with his career move, but now have to fill the vacancy that his departure has been created.

    The Treasurer is an important member of the Management Committee, and the person responsible should have good mathematical skills. If you think this is a role you could fill, please get in touch via our website:

    Stephen Poole
    Chair – BSCRA
