Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

LAST week saw us welcome the fi­nal group of work ex­pe­ri­ence stu­dents for the cur­rent school year into our stu­dios.

The year has seen us train in ex­cess of 100 stu­dents from lo­cal high and public schools, Bux­ton Com­mu­nity School and even one stu­dent from as far away as north Wales. All of the stu­dents have de­vel­oped skills in all as­pects of what is in­volved in run­ning a ra­dio sta­tion and quite a high num­ber have de­cided they liked what they have seen and have stayed with us to be­come pre­sen­ters on our youth in­ter­net ra­dio sta­tion Canal­side’s Phase One ra­dio.

Tune in online and via 102.8fm to find out who they are. We must say thanks to Nick Wright, Mark Blackman, and Re­becca Done who have done a great job in train­ing the young­sters.

We must also say thanks to our vol­un­teers who have re-ar­ranged their use of our record­ing stu­dios so that the young­sters had ac­cess to them. This though isn’t the end of the train­ing that we do. Through­out the sum­mer we will be host­ing other peo­ple who have ex­pressed an in­ter­est in volunteering with us. Clea Ka­pa­dia, Alicia Walsh, Han­nah Bur­goyne, and Peter Smith are among the peo­ple that will be in with us and help­ing be­hind the scenes.

They may also be in­ter­ested in pre­sent­ing shows, so you may very well hear them on air. Fi­nally we of­fer a warm welcome to one of our new vol­un­teers, Jess Robins, who is the per­son who will be regularly up­dat­ing our so­cial media pages.
