Young Rebecca Walling of East Sussex has landed herself the role of ‘co-presenting a show every Tuesday from 7-9pm’ called ‘Showtime’. The show features ‘music from films and musicals’. Rebecca continues to say ‘we do film and theatre reviews and things as well.’ Tomorrow (Tuesday 27th November) the person Rebecca usual presents with is away and so for the first time she will be running the show solo. She said she is ‘rather nervous’ but is sure she will be fun and I’m sure we all wish her the best of luck.
How did you get to be on Uckfield FM?
I got involved because I was interested in broadcasting and so saw Uk fm as a good opportunity. We asked around and a family friend knows one or two of the presenters who put me in touch with the chairman, Mike Skinner. I explained my interest and sat in on a few of the shows, and when I came to see Phil on Showtime I really enjoyed it and we got on really well. Then I started to become more involved in bits and pieces until finally I was trained up on the equipment and co-presenting with him!
What’s it like recording?
Well we don’t really record shows because we do everything live which of course can initially feel quite daunting but it’s great fun once you get into the swing of it and start interacting with the listeners on the chat room or through requests.
Have you done anything like this before?
I’ve not done anything like it before, no. It’s my first step towards getting experience in broadcasting and radio which will hopefully fair me well for the future. And of course I love doing it because the show’s right up my street in terms of content and I get on really well with the other presenters as well.
What do you enjoy talking about the most on the show?
What I enjoy most on the show is, when we get the chance, doing film and theatre reviews because film and theatre is something that I’m really interested in and enjoy sharing my views with the listeners.
You can listen to the show live on Uckfield FM’s website so be sure to tune in tomorrow.
I am sure Rebecca would love to know what you think of the show so please comment below or email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward your feedback.
Thank you for reading.
