Did you tune in? Radio goNORTH took to the airwaves for a second year during our annual creative gathering in June bringing the audience interviews, chat and acoustic sessions from the bands showcasing. Ten trainees got the benefit of industry professionals in the shape of our long-term collaborators, Dabster Productions, who guided them through the radio production process from start to end.

After 10 days of learning the skills on the job by researching, writing, recording and editing packages, they took the next step of running and presenting a live broadcast for three days.  Well done Team Radio goNORTH – Freyja, Mark, Fee, Innis, Paddy, Stephen, Paul, Seonaidh, Maria and Chloe – you pulled it off!

Our trainee producers have come from all different backgrounds, with a wide variety of skills and experience.  Radio goNORTH training was devised and structured to accommodate this, allowing new entrants to learn the basic skills while developing those with some experience.  In this unique 2 week course all the trainees came away with a thorough understanding of the end-to-end radio production and just what dedication and effort is needed.  Read about their experiences and highlights.
