If you enjoy any aspect of listening to the radio then you are qualified to join us as a volunteer. Everything we do is on a voluntary basis for the time you can spare. You will not be asked to do anything you cannot do and training is always available.
Everything that happens with Dunoon Community Radio depends upon its volunteers and their input.
Do you have ideas? Share them with us here, or by filling out the comment form below.
Tea or Coffee?
We really want to encourage people to get involved either as an individual or with friends, if you are part of a group or organization. We may ask you to bring your own cup but we have a big tea pot ““ the more the merrier.
There is still plenty to do before Dunoon Community Radio can broadcast. Many of these things have to be done long before broadcasting or recording and if not done there will be very little to broadcast or record.
PROGRAMME ADMINISTRATORS to work with the programme planner to help research, plan, gather information and help organise programmes.
PROGRAMME RECORDERS many organisations and individuals have said they would love to be on the air, we need people to help our engineers to record them. With the aim that they will be trained to do the job themselves. Fully trained engineers also welcome.
EDITORS to help with the editing of recordings and provide supplementary information.
FINANCIAL AND LEGAL ASSISTANCE either to join the committee or just to know you are there if we have a query.
Come and help our popular roadshow at one of the many events we do during the year including the Benmore Raft Race, Swamp Soccer and various fundraisers. We need people to help set up and dismantle, hand out leaflets, answer queries and presenting. If you can’t manage the whole day don’t worry just come along for a couple of hours. Just call or email us before so we know to expect you.
Organising Fund Raising Events
We need FUNDRAISERS to rattle some cans or to help organise larger fundraising events.
SALES PEOPLE to sell advertising on the website and on air.
We could also do with help filling in GRANT APPLICATIONS
This is where we let you know about what is happening on air and let you listen so you can “Hear the Difference”. You may want to do more than listen and volunteer to be involved in the broadcast of programmes, maybe in front of the mike presenting, or behind the mike producing or on the technical side of things.
If you can’t spare any time but would still love to help, you can sponsor us. It does not need to be a large amount but if you would like to pay a years rent that would be very nice!! It could be a show, a piece of equipment, travel costs or even the tea bags. Or do you have something you think might be useful just let us know.
We are always looking for bits of information for the website, have you got an event coming up, are you doing something spectacular for charity or just want us to let everyone else know about something, then drop us a line. Do you have an original piece of work be it poetry, music or prose and would like the rest of the world to hear it, you never know what might happen!
