Ever wondered what being an executive producer on one of Scotland’s biggest radio shows was like?
We talk to BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Morning Call’ very own David Flynn. David started off in the radio world later in life, making a huge jump from a successful job in retail to working as a researcher on the Fred MacAulay show.
David gives a detailed look into what exactly goes into making a phone in show and the hectic daily schedule he has to keep in order for the show to broadcast successfully on a daily basis. David also tells us how you have to be willing to be on the ball when it comes to current events and news and how it’s hard even on holiday to switch off.
Getting involved in community radio is just one of David’s top tips when trying to break into media as well as having a specialist subject. If you have a keen interest in producing speech based radio programs give this podcast a listen and catch a glimpse into what live radio is really like.
