My experience on the community radio roadshow

Me at the South Leeds Community Radio roadshow

We’ve received this guest post from local resident Jonathan Chapman about his first experience of a South Leeds Community Radio Roadshow.

What a great year for South Leeds Community Radio with its annual popular roadshow!

Jaz Long – the station manager who taught me on a SLCR radio production course last year – showed me how to do a roadshow.

My first roadshow was Beeston Festival. It was a bit windy and the the PA speakers were falling over each time so what I did was get the  masking tape and tape the speaker stands to the Gazebo legs. It worked – just! So next year might be hopefully a bit better.

Fingers crossed!
