Our New Radio Studio


Our new Radio Studio is ready to go and it's timely because we have just inducted a new group of students on the course back at the start of November - and what a lovely group they are!

What both I and Simon Peel (my Radio tutor colleague) wanted to see with the studio, was an environment that looks, feels and has all the technical ability of a radio studio - and I believe this is what has been created. So it's been a few months coming, but was definitely worth the wait!

We've got some fantastic radio expert Masterclasses planned over the next few months, along with visits that I hope will really give our new students an eye opener into the kind of things they can expect when they hit the big time (notice there, I didn't say 'if'...!).

One thing I am a great believer of is going for your dreams and work goals in life. After all, we are all only here for a short while and you have to make the most of it.

So, with that in mind, I'd like to share this with you... the story of a guy called Jay Britton who is (now) a Voiceover Artist (or Voice Actor) and he was given an incredible opportunity to fulfil a career ambition...take a look here - I hope you feel as inspired as the people I have played this to already: 

In this business, you're only as good as your last make every day count!

We will have a full image gallery and tech spec run down of the radio studio on the website very shortly, but for now here's another pic to keep you going until then... SSR  - Our New Radio Studio
