Platform B - get involved Radio Show Submission - Spring 2019
Please note that we are working through current applications so there may be a wait of up to 3 months for a response.
We are a not-for-profit radio station that broadcasts online, on 105.5 FM & DAB. In January 2017, we launched our official open top radio studio in the bar area at the Green Door Store in Brighton, UK. We also run pop up broadcasts from various parts of the city.
We're looking for creative volunteers 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 is music based but we are broadening out 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!
