Future Radio - Frequently Asked Questions
What is Community Radio?
Community radio is a new tier of very local, not-for-profit volunteer driven radio. It is different from, and complementary to, existing independent local radio. Community radio offers potential benefits in terms of social inclusion, local educational, training and experience, and wider access for communities, and communities of interest, to broadcasting opportunities.
Do I need any experience to get involved?
No, just enthusiasm and a willingness to work as part of a team!
Future Radio can provide you with all the necessary training you need to get involved in community broadcasting so it doesn't matter if you don't have any previous experience you can still get involved with the station.
I don't want to do any presenting, is there anything else that I can do with the station?
Yes, there are a number of other ways you can get involved behind the scenes. We are always looking for people to help with production work, website maintenance and other roles such as podcasting. We offer opportunities to work behind the scenes and learn about sound editing/production, programme planning and more. We run regular volunteer programmes and work experience placements - contact us for more information, or to register interest.
