Nine Year BBC World Service Veteran
Reveals His Step-By-Step Process for Setting up a
Mainstream Radio Show in Just 5 Hours

Discover the System for Producing Fantastic Radio Shows & Podcasts

When you host a radio show or podcast, do you.....
Present without a detailed plan?

Have you sourced interesting and engaging content?

Did you structure your broadcast hour into sections?

Do you work from a running order?

Have you carefully planned your show's journey?

Do you feel comfortable with the mixing desk? Can you use it without making any mistakes?

Would you like to put some 'bounce' into your broadcasting voice?

When you read from newspapers, does it sound clunky and clumsy?

Do you know how to get the best out of your show guests?

And tell me, how will you start and end your show?

Grab Listeners, Don't Push Them Away
If your show isn't structured well, you could be pushing listeners away from you.

If you have a passion to create awesome sounding radio shows or podcasts, then this might be the most important thing you've ever read.

I Didn't Have A Clue How to Present a Radio Show....
When I first presented a radio show in 1996, I didn't know what I was doing. My early radio shows were terrible!

Understand This....

Put Rubbish In, And Rubbish Will Come Out
Badly produced podcasts and radio shows WILL push listeners away.

You've Only Got One Chance to Hook a Listener.
Once they've gone, then you've lost them for good.

Think About It....
If a listener tunes into a messy, unprepared and unfocused show, the chances of them tuning back in again are very low.

Ok, Well What’s the Answer Then?
You need to have a system in place, AND you need to work hard. If you follow a well thought out plan, commit to getting better, you will improve.

Finally, I Took Matters Into My Own Hands...
After a few years of making terrible radio shows, I decided to improve myself. I went to Lambeth college, and I enrolled in a radio production course. I wanted to study radio presenting. I also listened to radio DJs, and I analysed their shows. I then joined a hospital radio station, and I practised a LOT. I recorded my shows, and I listened back to them. I wanted to know what was working, what wasn't working and what I could do to be better.

Stations I've Worked And Trained At:
BBC World Service (2002 - 2011)
K2K Radio
Whitechapel AM
FLR 107.3FM
Resonance FM
Radio DÅB FM
TGR Sound

Working Hard Paid Off....
After lots of practice, I became a radio presenter on two FM radio stations (this was when FM was a big thing). For two years, I hosted a radio show to 100,000 listeners. Later on, I presented a weekend radio show to 20,000 listeners. Hard graft and practice took me to the next level.

Along Came The BBC World Service, Radio
In 2002, I took my six years of radio experience, and I joined the BBC World Service, Radio as a studio manager. I technically operated news and current affairs transmissions to audiences of over 20 million. From 2002 to 2011, I worked at the BBC, and I continued to present radio shows on local radio. I also tutored over one hundred volunteers in radio presenting and media interviewing techniques. I volunteered my time for free at five different community radio stations.

This Training Course Was Created With 18 Years of Radio Experience
In 2016, I realised I could train radio students using online videos. I spent eighteen months creating an online training system. My goal is to help community radio presenters and podcasters produce professional sounding shows. It's something I'm very passionate about.
