We are looking for committed, passionate and experienced presenters to come on board and bring enthusiasm, energy and a great show.  We ask that you have suitable equipment and software and know how to use it to get the best from it and provide us with a weekly, fortnightly, monthly show. 

If you are not going to be using our studio facilities then you must have your own legally bought music for your shows. 
We would need to hear a demo of you presenting and tell us a little about you and your radio experience.

If you have a keen interest in radio and would like to learn more, we can help you do that  but you will need a fast processing laptop, are prepared to buy some basic equipment and music.
