For the past 27 years, Radio North Angus have recruited young volunteers to present programmes and are currently seeking new applicants. The School's Out programmes, broadcast between 1600 and 1800, Monday to Friday, afford school students a unique opportunity on British Independent Local Commercial Radio to present their own music radio programmes. These programmes are designed specifically for a teenage audience, whilst giving presenters (DJs) the chance of personal development and to acquire media skills and to gain self-confidence.
Our transmitters broadcast across Angus in Arbroath (96.6FM), Carnoustie (107.5FM), Monifieth (105.9FM), Brechin, Forfar, Montrose (87.7FM) and Kirriemuir (107.9FM). We also broadcast on the Tayside DAB at certain times of the day, and we broadcast worldwide, with an app facility from our website - http://www.radionorthangus.co.uk.
The voluntary service is regarded favourably by prospective employers, college, University and can be included as community service for all levels of the Duke of Edinburgh, Saltire Awards etc with certain members proceeding to follow successful careers in broadcasting and journalism.
Training in music radio production, consisting of seven sessions will mainly be held between 4 and 6 pm once a week but other times can be arranged. Thereafter, there are practice sessions before presenters proceed to live or pre-recorded programming, depending on their availability. Programmes at times other than School's Out are also available. The commitment ifs to present a programme once a week for at least one year. Arrangements can be made to avoid conflict with study for examinations.
Music radio is enjoyable, fun and welcome expressions of interest. If you would like to know more initial contact should be made by phone or email to Malcolm Finlayson, Managing Director.

Calling all knitters and Crafters:
You can make a huge difference to the lives of children affected by domestic abuse and family breakdown in Shetland. We're seeking out talented volunteers to create some 'Worry Monsters' that will bring comfort and joy to the young folk we support during the most challenging times.
What are Worry Monsters? They're cuddly creatures with a very special power - they gobble up worries and fears! By crafting these adorable compainions, you can provide a source of comfort and reassurance for children who need it most. Our specialist CYP (Children and Young People) workers use a variety of creative and playful therapeutic techniques to support children (of all genders, ages 3+) to use their Worry Monster to help process what might be going on at home, and you can be a part of making that happen.
Here's how you can get involved:
*Knit, sew or craft your own Worry Monster using your favourite materials and colours. Let your creativity shine! There are various free patterns available online if you need an idea of where to start. A pouch or mouth to store worries would be ideal.
*Please ensure your Worry Monster is child-friendly, soft and huggable.
*Once you've finished your creation, please contact us and we'll arrange collection. We'll make sure each Worry Monster finds its way to a deserving child.
By sharing your crafting skills, you'll be providing a tangible reminder to these children that they are not alone and that their worries can be transformed into something magical. Let's come together as a community and make a difference - one stitch at a time. If you have any questions or need more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01595 692070
