Training

Love Radio? Ever felt you’ve got a lot to say about your life? Or do you just have an enormous record collection that you'd like to share?

Well, this could be just the chance you’ve been waiting for. The Source is a community station that is staffed by volunteer DJs. We offer training for people with all levels of experience from the absolute novice up.

ENTHUSIASM IS ALL YOU NEED!

If it's doing your own show on The Source that interests you, the best place to start is to download the two forms at the bottom of this page, fill them in and boost them back via email: info@thesourcefm.co.uk We are also looking for people to fill other roles such as Studio Managers, Producers, Script Writers and Editors. We aren't looking for people with any previous experience, in fact you could say the opposite was true. We love to train volunteers with no previous experience, all you need to bring is your enthusiasm.
