Recent weeks at South Leeds Radio have seen the installation of a brand new (to us) studio desk that greatly improves production resources and means new contributors will be introduced to industry standard practices from the outset.
The desk was installed by DJ Shaun of our Greatest Hits and Old Skool shows, dusting off his technical expertise from years spent DJing, but was donated by a friend of our station manager, Mick, so it's been another collaborative realisation for us as we continue to grow.
Following the great work by Shaun the trustees got together and decided to appoint Shaun as South Leeds Radio's inaugural Studio Manager, meaning he can take control of production and audio operations in the studio, including training folks how to use the new desk. Meanwhile Mick will be able to help drive the station forward through recruitment, contact building and marketing alongside recording his own shows.
To close this little update: as well as congratulations for Shaun on his promotion from Producer to Station Manager, we're also celebrating the happy news for Mick and Amanda, who got married recently! It was a great day of romance, jokes and smiling faces and many of our team were there to enjoy the day with the happy couple. Remember you can hear the newlyweds on their 'Hard and Soft Rock Show' each Friday at 9pm.
We'll have another update soon about our new schedule, website re-design and our future scripted comedy drama shows soon!
