Chorley hospice team in own radio show
Six young adults from a children’s hospice have recorded and edited their own radio show for an online broadcast.
The budding DJs and studio producers, from Derian House Children’s Hospice, include Tyla, Leah, Bradley, Will, Adam and Alix, all aged between 17-23 years.
They set up a small studio at the hospice in Chorley from which to record the one hour pre-recorded show which is scheduled to go out later this month.
Helen Pearcy, deputy head of care at Derian, explained: “This is both an educational experience and a fantastic opportunity for the young people to create their own show, giving them a platform to talk about their passions, interests and hobbies. It’s allowing them to experience something completely new, supported by radio professionals and with the results of their work broadcast online.”
One of the DJs, Will, said: “I really enjoyed this session, it was good to do something different that we had not done before.”
His friend Bradley, added: “I chose to talk about my time at Derian and what it means to me. This was an ideal opportunity to tell people about Derian House and what it does.”
Rock FM has helped with the recording, editing and production, while Abbey Telecom is helping the youngsters to produce a 30-second example commercial for broadcast.
It will be broadcast on http: //i.rockfm.co.uk/ this month.
