Ever wanted to be on the radio? Been harbouring disc jockey dreams or drivetime desires?
Join Hunt & Darton for a whistlestop tour of the world of radio presenting. This FREE two day workshop will get your fingers on the buttons and your voice on the airwaves, introducing you to the key skills involved in hosting a show on the radio. Conduct interviews, compose jingles, brush up on your banter - and bring everything together for your own bespoke broadcast.
There’s even an opportunity to have your vocal stylings included as part of Hunt & Darton’s live show, Radio Local on Saturday 20th April, which will be performed and broadcast live from Cherry Tree Shopping Centre, Liscard, and on Radio Wirral, a digital station crafted for Wirral by Wirral people.
The Radio Local workshop is free, fun and suitable for ages 8+. (Under 16's must be accompanied by an adult)
