Radio Surgery helps students

Students from a school in Burnley have completed another trial radio broadcast with the help of a Lancashire based training and consultancy business. The Radio Surgery is managed by 2BR founder David Blaxhall, who has now helped many schools get on-air using RSL licences.

The latest project, 96.6 IBFM which finished broadcasting their latest RSL last week, was also the first station David help set up 8 years ago. Since then, David has provided training, consultancy and equipment hire for sixteen separate school and college RSLs in Lancashire, Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire.

"Being competitively priced is only one reason for the success”, David told "It’s also very important that you can relate to the students well. Be on their level, dress casually and make lots of jokes. It always goes down well!"

Due to the success of the projects, David has now brought in additional radio professionals from both BBC and commercial radio backgrounds.

A BBC World Service young broadcaster competition last year, Generation Next, saw two students from David’s projects be selected into the final five. With one of them being chosen as a joint winner. Darryl Morris from Rivington and Blackrod High School in Horwich had wanted to follow a career in politics, but the sixteen year old has now decided to pursue radio, following a school RSL and winning the competition.

Meanwhile, [link=]The Radio Surgery[/link] is already working on its thirty-first project, AlderBeat, from Alder Grange Community and Technology school in Rawtenstall.
