As part of my Radio course at uni, I get to work in a small team to produce and present a radio show on 3RRRfm once every few weeks. The show is called Room With A View and you can find out more here. On our first show six weeks ago, I took on the role of producer and online producer which was great for me because I’m kind of bossy and can be a bit of a control freak and I really know my way around editing a website and tweeting about the show.
Our second show went to air this Monday, and for this show I took on the role of presenter. I was so, so nervous and kind of a bit terrified of being the presenter. As much as I love public speaking, I always forget how nervous it makes me, so it takes me by surprise every time. I could talk underwater with a mouth full of cement, but stick a microphone in front of my face and I’m prone to freeze up.
The show went really well, despite my nerves. Afterwards I was on such a high, it really was quite exhilarating. We got good feedback from the station’s talks manager too, which was quite rewarding.
You can listen to this week’s episode by clicking here. During the show, we interviewed Dean Denham from the Melbourne Ukulele Kollective, First Dog on the Moon, and Lachy and Al from Fortnightly Fort Night.
