In 2013 The British Council offered six UK student radio stations the chance to produce and present our weekly radio show, The Selector. The SRA Selector is currently broadcast weekly from:
Jack Saunders – Fly FM – Nottingham Trent University
Louis Chadwick – Shock Radio – University of Salford
Michael Walmsley – Forge Radio – University of Sheffield
Lauren Rosewarne – RaW1251am – University of Warwick
Hazel Morgan - XpressionFM - University of Exeter
Lloyd Bent – Purple Radio – University of Durham
In October 2013 the students chosen were invited to attend a training day at the Folded Wing production studios in London, where The Selector Radio show is recorded and produced each week. Throughout the day the students took part in a number of sessions that would help them to present and produce their Selector shows. Sessions were presented by the Folded Wing team as well as our very own Sam Hall - AKA Goldierocks - including how The Selector works within the music industry, how to structure a show, build a playlist, write scripts and gather music.
The Selector Student Radio initiative is part of British Council Study Work Create, a website for 16-25 year olds living in the UK to find opportunities to study, work, travel or develop their creativity at home or abroad.
