Three lucky students from Blackburn Central High School had the opportunity to visit 2BR radio station in Clayton-le-Moors to record a couple of festive greetings from BCHS to our extended community and the listeners of 2BR.
Junior Leadership Team members Zainab, Aaminah and Talib had a great time in the recording booth, with 2BR’s Digital Co-ordinator Brian Ascroft, recording both Christmas and New Year greetings from the staff and students at Blackburn Central High School.
Three takes of the first greeting and a bit of editing magic from Brian gave us an excellent final recording, and the students produced a perfect new year’s greeting in just two takes.
After the recording session the students got to spend time with presenter Vic McGlynn, whilst she was on-air covering for 2BR’s usual daytime presenter Olly Houldsworth; Followed by a very informative tour of 2BR Towers where they learnt many secrets of the radio entertainment business.
The Christmas greeting will be aired on 2BR throughout the week before Christmas, and the New Year greeting will be broadcast during the final week of 2016.
Our Christmas greeting can be listened to below:
And our New Year’s greeting:
