New series: Soundcrafts

trad-instrumentsSoundcrafts, a new six-part series on Claremorris Community Radio, examines the craft of traditional Irish instrument making in the West of Ireland.

The show, presented by long-term CCR volunteer Tommy O’Connor, brings the listener on a journey through the workshops of the skilled workers who produce musical instruments here in Ireland.

Each episode will focus on a different craftsperson and their trade and also includes some Irish music performed on the finished instrument.

Soundcrafts will be broadcast over the next three weeks in the documentary slot on Saturdays at 2pm and repeated on Fridays at 5pm.  Each programme will feature two episodes.

Member experience review

surveyOver the coming months the radio station will be holding a member experience review. We would be grateful if each member would fill out the following questionnaire to enable the station to take stock of member morale, training and any ideas members may have to improve the station and the member’s experience of volunteering at the station.

Each member will be contacted individually by Gordon Campbell in order to follow up on the review and it is envisaged that a new support structure will be realised from the ideas and experiences garnered from the survey. We cannot stress how important this is and it is essential that everyone’s view is expressed in order to improve the member experience in our station.

Please take the survey here: Member Experience Survey (login required).
