A busy start to the month of April saw TEABBA Radio Technician Kyle Doevendans and Broadcaster DJB fly to the community of Wadeye to conduct a training session with the communities newest Broadcasters. Henry Narrwarr and Francisco Bunduck. After a short flight, we arrived to beautiful dry season whether. A drop-in temperature and swarms of Dragon flies to welcome us.
After meeting the participants, it was time to get down to business. Learning how to plan and conduct a radio show based on the community and its people. The lessons began with an introduction to the studio. Moving onto the occupational health and safety aspects of Broadcasting. Then came the fun part. Learning how to plan a show to Broadcast. This involved designing a playlist. The playlist is the music that will be played. Networking community organisations to become involved. Giving them the opportunity to get their messages out to the people of Wadeye.
I was personally surprised at the enthusiasm and the ability of both participants to learn at such fast pace. TEABBA Radio is pleased to welcome Henry Narrwarr and Francisco Bunduck to the network.
