YEAR 10 JOIN NATIONAL RADIO SHOW; KS3 STUDENTS GEAR UP FOR NEW SHOW!
Building on the success of last year’s Year 10 Media students winning a global award for their pop-up, 11-episode radio show Pass The Mic and current Year 13 students gaining employment presenting on Radio Ara during the summer, current Year 10s Alex and Laura received their first experience recording in the Ara radio studio.
The Year 11 team; Alex, Julie and Georgia will be on air on Wednesday 28th October from 4-5pm as our regular monthly B122 Show hits its one year anniversary! In further exciting news, Key Stage 3 students are working on a new show to be broadcast in November through the after-school Radio Club.
If you have any extra special requests, email them in, ideally with an MP3 of a voice recording, and we’ll do our best to feature some – lively songs only please, and strictly no Ed Sheeran!
To support the ongoing Radio Ara campaign for fair funding (community media have been left out of a media funding package) but also to enrich the work we do in Media in the radio industry, we would also welcome any memories you can share of growing up with music on the radio, and your experience of how radio has evolved. As Ara began as a pirate station itself, we’d love to hear from anyone who grew listening to the likes of Radio Caroline and Radio Luxembourg or more contemporary pirate stations – or just your memories of legendary DJs like John Peel, Tommy Vance, Alan ‘Fluff’ Freeman or the remarkable Annie Nightingale (who started on the UK’s Radio 1 in 1970!). This will help enrich students’ learning and provide material for future features on our show.
You can send (special!) requests or your memories through firstname.lastname@example.org and also the show’s Instagram account, @b122show, and catch the show through ara.lu (a global live stream) or 102.9 and 105.2 FM every 4th Wednesday from 4-5pm.
