Parental Approval

Youth Radio Rocks really does rock! My Daughter and her friends were beyond excited, discussing their personal playlist for hours. The studio got 3 big “WOWS” when we arrived and looked awesome. The attention to each individual personality was brilliant and very effective in bringing out the best in the girls. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic but more importantly this was so much fun! Giggles galore and some sneaky ( off air ) dancing. However the girls wouldn’t recommend Ian getting involved in this! :-D Such a fun and amazing experience to offer any child. Highly recommend and the girls are already asking to go again.

I took my son to do this as he loves talking about Marvel and Batman, this was perfect. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were made to feel like we were the only ones that mattered. It was a great experience and he listens to the audio of his show all the time. Speaking as a Mum, its safe and secure with a great attention to detail and very relaxed.Highly recommended for all ages.
It was Really Good FunEmily, Ryde
