Here's some tips to make it sound great:
- Do not have any music playing in the background - we cannot accept submissions that include any music (even if used as background music)
- Record somewhere quiet and not echoey (your car, when parked, is ideal)
- Be energetic and enthusiastic - project your voice
- Make sure you've thought about what to say before recording
- Don't write a script - otherwise you'll sound like you're reading
- Bear in mind that Roch Valley Radio is listened to by 18-40 year olds, so ensure your message is relevant to our audience age group
Suggested framework for your message:
- Start by introducing the organisation (maybe include your name too)
- Briefly outline the event/appeal/message
- Detail where more information can be found (website address)
Remember, you only have 30 seconds maximum!
Please only promote 1 event or appeal per message. However, you can record as many different messages as you want!
Plus: you can add your event to our online What's On guide. Submit your Event
