The rest of the time is playing songs from our music library, sharing community notices and local events, doing live to air interviews via phone or instudio and generally just having a good time.


You will need to be available for on-the-job training with one of our current hosts so you can see the structure of the show and get a handle on the software we use (Megaseg).
