Fantastic Noise

The complete package (featuring BBC Radio 2’s Tim Johns)

August 14, 2018

This episode focuses on radio packages and pre-recorded features. Joining Terry is co-host Adam Simmons who has just completed his first year of a Media Production (Radio) course (beds.ac.uk/makeithappen/course/media-production-radio) at the University.

They hear from; BBC Radio 2 Producer Tim Johns (www.timjohns.org & audioboom.com/timoncheese) – he makes radio packages for Jeremy Vine’s popular midday programme. He also has a habit of upsetting swans… We will also hear from Dr Sam Coley of Birmingham City University (www.samcoley.com). As well as teaching his own students, he has extensive experience of both radio package and audio documentary creation.  

We'll also hear from Dr Lawrie Hallett, Senior Lecturer in Radio and Journalism (beds.ac.uk/howtoapply/departments/culture-and-communications/staff/lawrie-hallett), in his radio surgery. And do some jargon busting with our 'radio word of the week'.

Fantastic Noise is a podcast about making radio. Recorded in the Radio LaB 97.1FM studios in the University of Bedfordshire. Produced and presented by Terry Lee.
