So the 9th Corinium Radio broadcast will take place between Thursday 1 July 2010 and Sunday 4 July 2010.
Last night, we had the first of three programming meetings and brainstormed a number of ideas for programmes to be broadcast during this time. I thought I’d take this opportunity to discuss here, my programme ideas.
Early Breakfast Show
I sent in a programme proposal form for an Early Breakfast show, to run for a couple of hours before breakfast (starting slightly earlier on the Friday), because p until now, we’ve had the sustainer playing music between 2300 and 0800 the next morning.
The problem with that is that the Breakfast listening peak it normally 0730-0830 in the morning; so we effectively miss half of the Breakfast peak.
The Early Breakfast show would be a mixture of music as well as clips from previous broadcasts, taken from all over the schedule. So this could include something featured on a previous edition of the 4014 Show, or the recording of Tinkerscuss performing live in July 2009. And anything else I can find that best represents what Corinium Radio does for the community.
This pre-recorded programme will lead in to the main Breakfast show which will run from 8 until 10.
Music from the Decades
This is my main music show, and is mainly music based. I host the programme with the help of Luke Thrussell. We are planning to record it this time and put it onto the sustainer, so that it can be broadcast between 9pm and 11pm after live broadcasting for the day has finished.

Behind the Scenes at Corinium Radio
In our second broadcast, I produced a programme called ‘The Making of Corinium Radio’.
In the programme, I interviewed a couple of members of the team about their involvement within the group.
But since the programme was broadcast in 2006, the procedures at the station have changed; we have evolved and are starting to understand more about what we should be doing, rather than what we think we should be doing.
So in our July broadcast, I will be recording a follow up to ‘The Making of Corinium Radio’ – I will talk to the key members of the group about their involvement, and using it as an opportunity to encourage the listeners to get involved themselves.
