Step by Step podcasting workshop!

Podcasting Learn howPodcasting is simple and we can show you how.

If it wasn’t simple I couldn’t do it, plus it’s a great way for communicating with your audience!

Let people know what you are up to, or what project is coming up next, maybe throw in a bit of performance and you have a great magazine programme. Let them listen to the excitement in your voice rather than the italics on the page.

Preston FM on air with podcasts to!

Preston FM logoPreston FM has been doing a great job in the North West's third city.  Built out of the 20 years of experience in arts and community projects from PRESCAP, Preston FM has had a great  first 6 months.

If you start off serving the needs of the community in which you live and work as PRESCAP have done then it naturally follows that you will try and give the people a voice of their own and this is just what Preston FM has done. All of the ideas and talent comes from the local area with all sorts of community groups getting involved.  

They offer full training in radio productions skills - even more reason to get involved.  Or you could always give up some of your time each week as they are also seeking volunteers to help out. And maybe if you are looking for something more serious at the moment they are advertising for an assistant station manager

If you live in the area then retune that dial and pick up the real stories in your area, and if you live a little further away there is always Listen on line, and if you prefer your radio in bite size chuncks then they have a great range of podcasts available
