BUDDING radio DJs can take part in summer workshops and present their own show live on air.
Bromley radio station Smile is holding two summer school radio workshops where young people aged 11 to 16 can learn radio skills and techniques from professional tutors.
A workshop at Bromley's Central Library, costing £95, is scheduled to take place from 10am to 3.30pm on Monday, August 24, and Tuesday, August 25, with a second taking place on August 27 and 28.
David Owens, Smile's training coordinator, said: "This is an incredible opportunity for young people to learn all about broadcasting on professional radio and get the chance to present their own show live on-air. Students will learn how to use a microphone properly, practise recording jingles, edit their recordings, add music, record links and create a play list for their show.
"On day two they'll learn how to be a star interviewer and research questions for an interview with an artist, learn how to audition for the interview, have the chance to interview a famous artist and learn all about studio sessions and recording demos."
Students will then be ready to present a live show on Smile's radio broadcast on Saturday, October 31, and get a CD of their work and a special certificate.
