WCR FM is a Community Radio Station serving the City of Wolverhampton. It is owned and operated by Wolverhampton Community Radio Training (WCRT). WCRT provides ... See more specialised training in Radio broadcast skills and runs a number of radio services. We were established as the Wolverhampton Community Radio Association (WCRA) back in 1986, the training company began in 1996 with the Campus station following in 1999. All of our services come under a single banner - WCR. Since 1986 WCR’s chief goal has been to bring quality and diversity to the radio medium, from providing training in basic radio skills to giving local people access to radio. Every year dozens of local organisations of all types use WCR to spread informatio Over the years WCR has established extensive links with the community, representing a wide variety of social groups, all of which are frequently represented and highlighted on air. Differing, however, form the majority of news-based programming on radio, 101.8 WCR FM will always place a positive emphasis on events and activities, highlighting good news stories and informing the listener of how a project, scheme or activity will benefit the community. Volunteering At WCR Volunteer roles at WCR provide students and trainees with a chance to learn professional-level skills in all areas of media production. They can learn to make documentaries or mix live music. They can find out how the record industry works with radio stations and can develop interview skills. Learning these things as a volunteer also allows volunteers to develop the best skill of all: their own sense of inner motivation and discipline and confidence in a working environment. The core staff will always treat Volunteer Members with the same high expectations they would have of paid workers under their supervision. Both the Staff and the Volunteer should be careful to be specific about jobs and deadlines so that volunteers can limit their work to the things they have the time and desire to do. Training sessions are pre-arranged and usually last around 2 hours each with addition practice sessions available as often as the volunteer wishes. WCR’s UK Online Centre Our UK Online Centre (‘WCRT Centre’) provides a useful introduction to computing with the added bonus of digital multimedia. The facilities consist of top-spec computers with full multimedia capabilities, such as sound editing and CD writing. Find out more about the government’s UK Online scheme (it’s related to ‘learndirect’) at www.ufi.com/okol The ‘WCRT Centre’ offers additional radio production training, utilising our studio facilities which include full broadcast studios, portable recording equipment and digital editing systems. The UK Online service is aimed at those with none or very little computing experience and those with an interest in digital media, radio, sound editing and presentations. WCRT works alongside employment groups such as Action for Employment (A4e) to give long-term unemployed people the key computing skills to get back into work. We take a hands-on approach to learning, as we find that confidence is a key factor in learning computing skills. The ‘WCRT Centre’ is open for drop-in sessions during office hours – if facilities are available and members are encouraged to take advantage of this. ------ Shows: Music Through The Night, The Technicolour Radio Clubhouse, The Rock Show, Weekend Wind-Down, Classic Rock, Clubbed Up, Coffee and Croissants, Ek Shaam, Fish Sunday Service, Inside Tracks, Jason Forrest on Sunday, Keep It Real, Light & Easy, Live at Five, Louder Than Bombs, Mid-Morning Music, Milestones and All That Jazz, Music & Memories, Out Of Africa, Outside Centre, Page One, Reggae Fiesta, Rock in Sport, Roots & Branches, Supergold, Suturang with Surdhwani, Taste Wolverhampton, The CurveBall, The Late Mix, The Mid Morning Show, The Mousehole, UpAndHappy!, Urban Meltdown, Weavo at the Weekend, Weekend Warm-up, Wolverhampton At One, Wolverhampton Country ----- Hosts: Big Jim, Steve Morris, Frank Challenger, Sarah Campbell, Tony Bennett, Jessica Taylor, Zak Mcdowell, Kurt David, A Badger, Jim Duncan
