Would you like to be involved in one of the Wirral’s establshed community broadcast stations?
Vintage Radio broadcast for 9 days in February 2009 and won an award for doing so. We enjoyed it so much we did it again in November 2009, this time for over 3 weeks! Then we did it again in November 2010. However, since April 2010 we have been broadcasting on the Internet 7 days a week but we still need help to create and present new programmes and provide technical support.
Who are we looking for?
We’re looking for presenters, programme makers and technical support and station managers for our Live braodcast days. Vintage Radio is aimed at the mature listener but there’s no age bar for team members.
If you’ve got some spare time, you’re aged 18 years or over and you’d like to learn new skills, meet new people then get in touch. We’re based at the YMCA in Whetstone Lane so you can reach us easily by car or by public transport.
Please note: We can’t afford to pay you but we are looking to build up our programming and production teams so we can make more programmes. We also need to add to our support staff team (both station manager and technical). Its also valuable experience for your CV.
Contact us now - Vintage Radio needs you! Fill in our on-line form below. There is some more information further down the page under the form.
If you want to have a chat about the roles and the station use the on-line form below to send us your details and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Please note: All fields marked with an asterisk must be filled in.
Interested in making programmes? We’re looking to feature drama, poetry, chat shows, music shows, current affairs, health programmes and lots more. So whatever your interest we’d love to hear about it (and so would our listeners). There’s no bar on programme content other than it should be aimed at the over 50's. We have access to recording studios and experts who can help you make your programmes. We’ll train you and support you but if you already have some experience in broadcasting so much the better.
You’ll be one of the back room team who provide support for the studio whilst on air. You’ll be checking that equipment functions correctly, solving and fixing problems that may crop up on air. It would be great if you were already familiar with Windows based IT system and networking, and even better if you knew about sound and mixing equipment with some experience in broadcasting.
You’ll ensure the smooth running of the station whilst on air. You’ll deal with emails, man the phones, meet and greet guests and make sure they get to the studio on time, deal with any issues that aren't covered by the technical team and generally make sure the station runs smoothly.
