Radio Broadcasting Course

Saffron and Noods Radio are pleased to announce the second term of their 8-week beginners course in Radio Broadcasting.

Taught and mentored by Noods residents Manami and Tilly, the course will provide 8 women, non-binary and gender non-confirming folks in Bristol with the tools, confidence and space to develop their own idea for a radio show.

Under the wing of Saffron and Noods’ supportive and creative community, participants will get an introductory guide to creating their own radio show, from planning, recording and editing to marketing, presenting and interview techniques. The course will culminate with a takeover day on Noods, with each participant having the opportunity to showcase their own 1-hour show live on the radio. The course will also include a visit from a highly regarded key figure in radio - for our first term we had Nabihah Iqbal!

Key info

  • 8 participants - women, non-binary and GNC people in Bristol / South West
  • 8 x 2-hour weekly sessions, starting 11th October, 6-8pm
  • 8-hour Noods Radio takeover day, December
  • No previous DJ/radio experience necessary

The full course cost is £175, but we don't want this to be a barrier to entry. Further details can be found on the application form if you need to request a part-funded or completely free place.

Please note, this course will not look at beat matching and doing DJ mixes - the focus is on radio shows as a whole concept.

Founded in Bristol in 2015, Saffron is a non-profit initiative that works to advance gender equality in music tech spaces, primarily offering training to women and non-binary people in music production, sound engineering and DJing.

This will be Noods' second programme as NOODS LEVELS CIC, our arm that will further focus on education and opportunities for young creatives.

The deadline for applications is end of day on 27th of September – Get Applying!
