Some of our volunteers

A large team of people give up their spare time to keep Radio Clatterbridge running around the clock.

Whether it's a presenter, request-collector or music librarian, every individual is an important part of the team. Have you got the passion to join us on a weekly basis?

Please note that for insurance reasons we are unable to offer work experience placements, and membership is only open to over 18s.

They visit various parts of the Health Park each week to compile details of songs our listeners want to hear on air.

It is a rewarding role, as volunteers Helen Craven and June Wood explain:

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.
