Platform B - Radio Show Submission Form - SPRING/SUMMER 2018
Please note that there may be a wait of up to 1 - 2 months for a response to radio applications until we extend our broadcast times.
We are a not-for-profit online radio station that will begin broadcasting on FM in the summer of 2018. In January 2017, we launched our official open top radio studio in the bar area at the Green Door Store in Brighton, UK. We will be working towards running live broadcasts from 10am until 5pm (with some evenings as well) at least 5 - 6 days a week. We will also be running pop up broadcasts from various parts of the city.
What we are looking for right now, are people wanting to do a one hour radio show at least once a month (you could potentially do more if you wanted). Please bear in mind that the age demographic is 16 to 25 yr olds but there is a slight bit of flexibility with the age of the DJs as long as the content of your show has a youthful feel. If in doubt, please feel free to drop us a line to chat further. Please note - the music does NOT have to be 16 - 25 yr old artists - that is completely open.
Our main output will initially be music based and we will broaden it out (there is already a politics show being piloted) but we hope to include spoken word, comedy, poetry, art, fashion, films, gaming etc in the coming months. The idea is not to re-create the formal infrastructure of a traditional local or community radio broadcast centre or to be the next Radio 1 or Capital (although I can imagine that some of you will play some artists that are quite mainstream which is totally cool). We want Platform B to have it’s own identity and to be authentic. It has to speak to a younger generation that are not engaging with traditional radio as it feels disconnected from their experiences and aspirations.
Finally - ANY IDEAS are welcome so please don't worry if you haven't got any experience with radio presenting or DJing.
We look forward to hearing from you!
