What being a director of Somer Valley FM means to me
It is the best radio station on the planet, who wouldn’t want to be a Director?
When a young person’s family and friends hear them produce live radio as good as their benchmark, say BBC Bristol or Heart FM, it makes them feel great. It also raises their aspirations and ambitions to go on to do other things equally as well. It only takes a young person with a bit of talent, our training and mentoring and a lot of effort and they produce great radio that lots of people want to listen do. Not just in our local area but worldwide.
You can only really do this with radio. Every time it happens that makes everything we do worthwhile. This is genuinely the most fun I have had in my public life.
