Insanity Radio, Royal Holloway’s student-run radio station, has successfully helped a group of young people from Egham Youth Centre to write and broadcast their own radio show.
Over the past few weeks, the Insanity Radio team has held several sessions at Egham Youth Centre to give members an introduction into the world of radio, from designing their own show, to making sweepers and advertisements.
Elena Guthrie, from Insanity Radio, said: “The community team at Insanity Radio 103.2 FM firmly believe in creating unique and beneficial experiences, and this is exactly what we have achieved with Egham Youth Centre. As well as learning how to do a radio show, the activities promote the development of key life skills such as commitment, communication and team work, all resulting in a brilliant end product!”
Zareena Linney-Waine, Youth and Community Worker at Egham Youth Centre, commented:
"We were delighted with the way the tutors from Insanity Radio at Royal Holloway worked with the young people to produce a great show.”
The hour long show, which was broadcast at 5pm on 6th March, was pre-recorded in the Insanity studio on campus.
Jack Richards, a participant from Egham Youth Centre, said: “We enjoyed being part of this project, planning the show, broadcasting it and choosing the songs.”
