Radio Sonar

Client: Solent Student's Union

Whilst at university, I worked very closely with the union's student radio station, Radio Sonar.

I joined Radio Sonar in January 2013, when they began looking for people to help with their website, and since then, I've never really left the station.


In February 2013, I worked with one of the station's flagship radio shows, the Part Time Chart Show, in visualising a number of their features - Minute Madness, and No Pain No Game. The aim of working with visual radio was to increase traffic to the station, both off and on the air - a feat of which has brought applicants joining our university, to become members of the station, talking on roles within the station's committee and flagship shows.

I've worked hard as an active member of the station's technical team, which has included arranging, and setting up outside broadcasts for the station, on and around the university campus.

In addition to this, I also worked to help guarantee a site to site link, when our station formed a partnership with a local community radio station.

Later in 2014, I became the Head of Web for the station, and worked to redesign the station's website, and web player.

The stereotypical radio website

Whilst working with the Station's technology team, I eventually took over as the Head of Systems later in the year, being responsible for managing computers, audio racks and the newly installed play-out/scheduling system using RCS Zetta and G-Selector.
