Women Only Radio Training

Women of Source FM

Women Only Radio Training

Source FM has a problem; only 20% of its presenters are female. Ever since the first day of broadcasting in 2009 the station has been heavily dominated by male volunteers, mostly with big record collections. However in 2016 Source FM is making a special effort to change.

Source FM is inviting any women (and girls) from the local area who have even the slightest interest in radio to attend a special ‘Women Only’ open day at Source FM on Saturday 10th of September 2016 from 10am to 1pm. The event will give attendees the chance to meet existing female Source FM presenters and talk to experienced BBC female journalists and to tour the studios to see just how easy it is to make interesting exciting radio shows. And, you don’t need to bring anything with you except for your enthusiasm.

Val Baker who is a presenter on Source FM and a member of their Executive Board said, “I know I’m biased but women do some of the most interesting shows on Source FM and also have some of the most interesting things to say in general. To be good on radio you have to be a natural speaker, anyone can learn the technology that’s the easy part, but not everybody has something interesting to say.”

Source FM are especially keen to hear from women who might be interested in developing a newly rejuvenated relationship with The Poly who have a series of interesting performances and talks coming up in the autumn that Source FM is hoping to cover. They are also interested in receiving proposals about any subject such as health, wellbeing and creative writing or mechanics, mathematics and engineering.

Pirate Stories at The Poly

JOHN BOYLE PRESENTS: The Story Behind the Somali Pirates

Thursday 8th September 1930hrs

Cornish lawyer turned award-winning filmmaker John Boyle goes behind-the-scenes of his new book on experiences with Somali pirates at The Poly on Thursday 8 September.

John Boyle’s television documentary about Somali pirates was distributed worldwide by National Geographic; as a result he was commissioned by Bloomsbury to write a book “Blood Ransom”, and he has become a recognised expert on the subject.

Illustrated with clips from the documentary film, John Boyle gives a fascinating and possibly slightly unconventional look at this 21st century scourge of the oceans that has estimated to cost the world economy $18 billion every year.

Tickets cost £8 for adults and £6 for concessions, and are available from the Poly box office (10:00-19:00, Tuesday to Saturday), by calling 01326 319461 or online at www.thepoly.org
