All you need is Radio Jacka!
Now the radio station, as with many other student organisations, actually isn't very organised. So after turning up for 2 training sessions that didn't happen, and then not getting up in time to attend the replacement training sessions, I found myself sitting in front of the control desk, in the studio, broadcasting my first show, with absolutely no idea what I was doing.
Having said that, I think the show went quite well really. Admittedly the first half hour did mainly consist of dead air, with the occasional fading in and out of music as I tried to work out what all the knobs did. And in my defence there were some rather misleading objects about the studio, such as the red 'On Air' light, which refused to light up no matter what combination of buttons I pressed. This also meant that my first words to the listeners at the University of Sussex Campus, and indeed across the world were:
"Er, yea, hi... um, now I'm not quite sure if I'm actually broadcasting here, but I think I'll just get on with it anyway..."
