CANAL­SIDE 102.8 FM

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

OUR stu­dios have been very busy these past two weeks.

We have had five stu­dents from Fal­li­b­roome Academy in for their work ex­pe­ri­ence, where they have been learn­ing all about what hap­pens at a radio sta­tion, not only on air but also the tremen­dous work that is car­ried out be­hind the scenes by our fan­tas­tic vol­un­teers that en­sures the sound of the radio is good.

There is loads to do, such as the pop­u­la­tion of the web­site with every­thing that the pre­sen­ters read on air such as the what’s on guide, lo­cal news and sport, and com­pe­ti­tions. Edit­ing of songs and jin­gles and much, much more are all tasks that need to be done. We now have a week’s break from the young­sters be­fore we wel­come stu­dents from King’s School, Mac­cles­field for their work ex­pe­ri­ence.

The of­fice and stu­dios are also be­ing spruced up ready for a re-launch of our web­site that we are plan­ning to start on Fri­day, July 1. The site, www.canal­side­thread. org.uk, will not only fea­ture all of the contents of the cur­rent web­site www. thethread.org.uk but will also look dif­fer­ent and will in­clude some new fea­tures. Thanks to Si­mon Leah for all his hard work in cre­at­ing the web­site.

We will also be up­dat­ing our on air sound with new jin­gles, ad­verts and some new pre­sen­ters. We hope you will like our changes but, as al­ways, if there is some­thing you don’t think is as good as it was please let us know by call­ing the of­fice on 01625 576689 or send an email to of­fice@ thethread.org.uk.
