We Loved the Radio Experience

I liked talking about Batman and could play all the music I wanted to. I was a little nervous at first but very quickly I was giggling. It was great fun and I was laughing alot. What is really cool is I have a recording of the show that I did and I can play that to all my friends.

This was something that was really cool to do and with my friends it was great fun. I was a little nervous at first but that soon went. One of the greatest things I have done and I came away feeling really really positive.

Zander aged 10, Newport

If you want to have fun and boost your confidence, this is the experience for you! The 2 hours just weren’t long enough and we all want to do it again. Very enjoyable.

Lola aged 12, Ryde
I liked talking about vlogging and using all the equipment. Playing my music was really cool and it felt really good doing a show and making people laugh.
Lily aged 8, Ryde

A very good confidence booster and really interesting to take part in. Loved the kit, the instruction and the free flow of the whole thing. You get exactly what you want from this and even if you aren’t following a media path, its great fun and highly recommended!

This is your Isle of Wight Studio

A cool and unique present…

You arrive at the Radio Studio in anticipation of taking to the Airwaves. You know that over the next hour, you and your friends are going to be doing something you have never done before. Whats more, you know once you have done it, the whole world will be able to hear it. Cool.

First up we run through the kit we are going to use. The mics, headphones, mixing desk, and the all important play-out system. We load in some music and the show is ready to go. You can talk about what you want or we can do it as an ‘interview’ styled show where you are the superstar guest on the show. Its for you to decide and it can be tailored to the preferences. There are no rules.

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.

Kelleigh, Ryde
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
