Who do we need?

Our volunteers come from all walks of life. From shop workers to accountants, teachers and retired people, everyone helps keep the station on air. Some of our volunteers have gone on to be successful professional presenters. But we are not here to train "wannabe DJs". Our primary focus is always our listeners, so we expect a level of commitment from new volunteers. We do not usually take on people who can only offer their services for a short period of time.
