Volunteer Testimonials

Why did you choose to volunteer at Radio Nightingale?

I was interested in radio and wanted to find out about it as a career (originally I was looking for work experience though).  I also wanted to have a regular job – benefit the community as well

What do you get out of volunteering?

I learn new things each time because I do different tasks each week, this has provided me with new skills.  I meet new people and make new friends.  For the production work, I can be creative.  I’m proud to be part of Radio Nightingale because it’s my first ‘proper’ job and it’s great to know that I am contributing to something worthwhile.  Furthermore, the work is good experience – it may influence my career path for the future.

Why did you choose to volunteer at Radio Nightingale?

There are many reasons: I was looking for work at that time, did not have much to do at home, I wanted to be useful to the community, I wanted to socialize with the local people being new inEngland, I wanted to keep in touch with information analysis so I wouldn’t be out of practice.

What do you get out of volunteering?

The best part is that I met many interesting people every time.  The sense of camaraderie among people working for the station is usually the best part of working there.  Radio Nightingale gave me complete freedom to work on their software, this gave me a lot of space to experiment and hence I learned a lot about MS Access as well.  I thoroughly enjoyed the fundraising bit even though it was extremely tiring in the 4 hour shift still I feel proud while telling people about it. I learned a lot about being organized and disciplined.

  1. Hi, I’m currently at university studying music journalism and to be able to have some experience with a radio show would be fantastic. I would be free to volunteer in the summer period and to have that opportunity would be very beneficial.
