How do I get involved/ how do I join/ how do I get my own show?

If you are interested in producing your own show, joining an existing show, or getting involved in any other area of the station from studio maintenance to marketing, please click here to fill in the form. It is also worth coming along to talk to us at any of our open days, or broadcasting events.

Do I need previous radio experience to get involved?

No previous radio experience is necessary. Most volunteers can turn a hand to most tasks, but that’s not to say we’ll turn away experienced broadcasters, we have people who once worked at the BBC, Sky News and commercial radio. And when you need a helping hand we can offer training.

Work Experience

Due to the nature of the station and our broadcasting schedule, we don’t currently offer work experience placements for students.

How much does it cost to join Roch Valley Radio?

We don’t charge a membership fee, however we encourage all volunteers to join up to our Lottery Club.

What does my donation go towards?

Running Roch Valley Radio costs money (unfortunately!) – somewhere in the region of £1,500 per month in utilities, licence fees and royalties. This usually doesn’t cover costs of improving the station. Your money helps make this amount achievable.
