YJA Radio at Westgate Academy

Last week students from The Westgate Academy in Lincoln got to experience setting up and recording their own radio show.

YJA Radio Producer, Sarah provided a masterclass in all things radio and the budding radio DJs and producers loved it. They learnt how to set up the sound desk and microphones and master all the wires involved! The students also mastered the art of mixing audio live during their show.

The children were split into 2 teams, ‘The Presenters’ & ‘The Producers’. ‘The Presenters’ were taught presentation skills including voice control and delivery and how to create an interesting and seamless link.

The work (and fun!) didn’t stop there either as the Radio team were tasked with documenting some of their day. Have a click below and see what they got up to. And last but not least, why not have a listen to their very 1st radio show. The music has been shortened so you can focus on the team’s presenting skills; take a listen and see if you can beat Charlie, Natalia and Sam in the music quiz a few minutes in!

    Well done Westgate team! I really enjoyed watching the behind the scenes film and wish I could have been there to see it all happening myself.

    Can’t wait to listen to future radio programmes from the newsroom.
