Give a big HUG to radio station
April 08, 2010
Young people from around Bracknell will be on air from 8am today as HUG FM hits the airwaves.
The team has spent the last 10 weeks learning how to produce and edit shows and has been interviewing local musicians and community groups.
The station is broadcasting from a “virtual studio” in Brook House in Bracknell town centre for four days ending on Sunday evening.
Also involved in the project is actor Winston Ellis, who has been in films including Pirates of the Caribbean and the Batman film The Dark Knight.
The course has been organised by the NACRO charity and paid for by Lorraine Parker, the teenage pregnancy project manager from Bracknell Forest Council, as well as Connexions.
Cheryl Dean, manager of the station, said: “I have grown up a lot over the last 10 weeks and become more confident and comfortable in myself.
“We are one big family and this is an experience I will remember for the rest of my life. Joining the project was the best decision I have ever made.”
The team are keen for members of the public to take part in the four-day broadcast and have set up a live link to the studio. To listen online visit www.hugradio.co.uk.
