Students hit the airwaves

April 21, 2010

Students hit the airwavesMurdoch University radio students have hit the airwaves with South Street, a youth focused magazine show, full of features, interviews, news, reviews and music.

Radio Fremantle kindly hosts the daily student show, with students broadcasting live from the University studios at South Street via a link to Radio Fremantle’s transmitter.

Program Coordinator Simon Order has been teaching radio and media for more than 20 years in the UK, Middle East and Australia and says Murdoch’s program is one of the best he has seen.

“The radio program is one of the most challenging but rewarding programs for students in the media school,” Mr Order said.

“They broadcast live radio for eight weeks in teams of four and each student gets to produce a radio story or feature every week.

“They are additionally presenting and producing a full radio show each week.

“It’s not for the faint-hearted, but those who really want a media challenge.

“This is as close as it gets to working in the industry.”

Listeners can tune in to the student broadcasts at 107.9fm at Radio Fremantle, 3pm-5pm weekdays until 14th May, or listen to the live stream from Murdoch’s website.

All shows are archived by the University and Radio Fremantle.
