Volunteers needed for community radio station

Have your say

A community radio station specialising in classic rock and blues is looking for new volunteer presenters.

The Flash is broadcasting to the Portsmouth area on DAB as part of an experiment by communications regulator Ofcom.

Station founder Martin Kirby said: ‘You don’t need any experience in radio or a certain type of voice to join the Flash team.

‘All we require is a love of classic rock or blues and an interest in the live music scene in and around Portsmouth.

‘Full training is given and new presenters record their first shows with another member of our team operating the studio equipment, so no-one is thrown in the deep end.’

Specialist programmes are broadcast in the evenings and there is a weekly rock show, presented by Portsmouth musician Kev Ellis.

Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer presenter can e-mail rock@flash1512.co.uk.
