SRA Selector competition returns for third year
The Student Radio Association and the British Council are teaming up once again with Folded Wing for this year’s SRA Selector.
The six competition winners will present their own version of the globally syndicated radio show The Selector on their student stations and receive a two day producing and presenting course.
The previous two winners, Jack Saunders and Ross Buchanan, both went to Mexico as part of their prize and spent a week at The Selector’s sister station in Mexico City, Ibero 90.9 FM.
Jack and Ross also both now have their own shows on Radio X, meaning SRA Selector has become a great opportunity for UK students to make that all-important break into the radio industry.
Originally launched in 2001, The Selector is an international showcase for new music from the UK. It’s a weekly radio programme that covers all styles of music, from indie, dubstep, folk, grime, electro and everything in between. The show features interviews, mixes and live sessions from British artists.
Phil Catchpole, Selector Programme Manager for The British Council said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be working alongside the Student Radio Association and Folded Wing again after the tremendous outcomes we’ve had for the last two years. To be able to identify and develop fantastic young broadcasting talent using our unique radio show is a wonderful thing for the British Council to be doing here in the UK alongside our extensive work overseas.”
The Selector is hosted by Goldierocks and syndicated on FM stations in 44 countries around the world including Mexico, Columbia, Israel, Poland, Malawi, Hungary, Indonesia, Bulgaria, Cuba and China.
