If a show is more than 1 hour long - each hour must be opened separately
To open an hour - click on the date and hour you with to open in webVT
If you put music into an hour - LOCK IT - either by adding a VT r right click and 'lock hour'
The hour is then locked and safe and more music and VTs can still be added
Each hour is populated with 4 promos - this number must remain constant unless discussed with station manager or scheduler
Each hour has 2 further promos - a) advises listeners of Avondale Radio website and b) the different ways to listen to the station - these must remain in each hour
Try to encourage listeners to visit the station website e.g. mention the 'what's on' page; mention an event on in the Avondale area, or mention the sponsor's page
Each hour has 4 station IDs these can be useful between tracks which don't segue well together
A sponsored show will have 4 station IDs mentioning the sponsor's name - these must be retained
Always check all segues to ensure no gaps or overlaps
Music, promos and IDs can be moved withi the hour, to create a 'show' which flows
In a music show - not too muchchat - no need for chat between eachtrack - equally no more than three tracks back to back with no intro
Listen to your own show and note what works well and what could be better
Listening to shows by our other presenters can work well as a further learning tool
As with all voluntary organisations, Avondale Radio relies on the dedication and commitment of all volunteers, which is never taken for granted.
All new volunteer presenters will complete a one hour ‘trial’ show.
All volunteers are accepted for a 3 month probationary period which can be extended if further training/support is needed. Support and guidance is a priority of the management team, in order to broadcast programmes of the best possible sound quality and content for our community.
It is hope that all volunteers will attend
All volunteers have a responsibility to the sponsors, whether you host a sponsored show or not.
Once experienced in presenting you will be able to provide cover for other shows during holidays or emergencies.
All volunteer presenters will complete on loan equipment forms as required.
All volunteers will provide reasonable notice of holiday/unavailability when possible.
