Punch is excited to announce the launch of our first ever radio station during this year’s Bass Festival. “Bass.FM” will not only create a leading radio station for Black and Urban music but also invaluable work experience and learning opportunities for young people.

We are calling on Birmingham’s aspiring young broadcasters, presenters and researchers aged between 14 and 18 to be a part of “BASS FM Collective” and gain hands-on experience and insight into the radio industry.

A Boot-camp taster day is being held in the city centre on Saturday 27 April 2013 where industry professionals; BBC’s Janine Kempadoo, Ryan Newman and Choice FM’s Jade Avia will work alongside talented hopefuls and help them refine their skills. This will be an exciting and practical one-day event where young participants can pick up new skills and show off their own in areas of:

· Production, Research, Music Selection, Technical and Presenting.

The BASS FM Boot-camp day will provide the opportunity for young people to have a legal, on-air launch into the radio industry and a platform to launch their career in this field. Twenty young participants will be shortlisted from the day to participate in the structured eight-week learning programme of hands-on training and work opportunities across May – June 2013. These participants will also gain arts award accreditation and transferable skills to equip them for their future careers.

There are limited spaces available, if your are between the ages of 14-18 sign up now to come along to the BASS FM Boot-camp. To sign up and for more information please contact:
