BECOME A VOLUNTEER WITH TD9 RADIO

If you have a few spare hours a week, why not volunteer with TD9 Radio? We have various opportunities available:


Presenter/Co-Presenter/Producer
TD9 Sport


Our weekly sports programme is broadcast on a Saturday afternoon between 3 and 6pm. We’re looking for keen sports enthusiasts to join the team and help present and produce the programme. It’s a fairly fast moving programme at times and there is often the need to work under pressure to get items ready for broadcast within the programme timescales. There may also be an opportunity to report live on sporting events taking place during the programme, or to pre-record items for inclusion later.


Presenter/Producer
Traditional Music/Dance/Song


This would be a new weekly two hour programme on TD9 Radio (time slot TBC) and would include Scottish Traditional Dance Music and Song. The musical content of the show would be very much up to the presenter, but it is hoped would include bands and acts from the past, such as Jimmy Shand, The Alexander Brothers, Jim MacLeod etc as well as featuring new acts from the trad scene. The programme could also feature news and events from local accordion and fiddle clubs.


Presenter/Producer
Afternoons


The Afternoon Show would be a daily (Monday to Friday) spot broadcast bewteen 3-6pm Mon and Fri / 3-5pm Tue, Wed and Thu. Content would be very much up to the presenter, but could feature current chart hits mixed with oldies, album tracks and listeners requests/dedications.


Presenter/Producer
Lunchtime


The lunchtime spot would occupy 12-3 (Monday to Friday). Musical content would be up to the presenter, but it is hoped this lunchtime show would also include items of local news and interest / what’s on as well as either live or pre-recorded interviews that were of local interest.


Presenter/Producer
Mid-Mornings


This programme would be broadcast Monday to Friday between 10am 1pm. Musical content would be up to the presenter, but would feature current and recent chart hits with one or two oldies thrown in for good measure. The programme would also feature either live or pre-recorded interviews that were of local interest.


Presenter/Producer
Saturday/Sunday Breakfast


Waking up the community is an important role and you’d be responsible for doing this at the weekends between the hours of 6-9am on a Saturday and 6-8am on a Sunday. A good mix of music suitable for breakfast radio would be the order of the day, as well as perhaps a look at some of the news stories making the front pages of the papers. Local travel and weather would be of particular importance (especially during the winter months). The programme would also look ahead to what’s on over the weekend as well as previews to any sporting events taking place. Weekend Breakfast could either be presented by the same person both days, or could be hosted by two separate presenters on different days/could also be rotated.


Presenter/Producer
Saturday Mornings


This programme would be broadcast every Saturday morning between 9am and 12 noon and would feature the best new music plus classic and well known hits from the charts. Continue to look ahead to events over the weekend.


Presenter/Producer
Sunday Love Songs


This would be broadcast on a Sunday Morning between 9 and 11 am. Would feature a mix of love songs from the 60s to the present day. Could also feature listener requests/dedications.


Presenter/Producer
Country Roads


(Working Title / Time slot for this programme TBC)
This programme would feature the best in New Country as well as playing classic Country music from the likes of Charley Pride, Billie Jo Spears, Tammy Wynette etc. It is anticipated this would be a two hour programme on a Sunday (possibly 11am – 1pm).


Presenter/Producer
TD9 Talk


(Working Title / Time slot for this programme TBC)
This would be a weekly either 1 or 2 hour programme, potentially late night slot 10pm onwards or a Sunday morning 11am – 1pm. As the name suggests, it would be a talk-based show, mixed with a few pieces of music. Primarily the programme would focus on hot topics within the town and could also feature telephone calls from listeners/members of the public.
