Radio Tonkuhle is the local radio station in Hildesheim and the surrounding area – radio for everyone to join in! Anyone that wants to can share their own interests; this is how a diverse, colourful, 24-hour schedule is created. A number of a music programmes are devoted to styles beyond the charts.
As part of the workcamp, you will be helping to design the radio schedule and will be able to get a strong insight into the goings on behind the scenes. You will learn how to use a reportage device, how to develop questioning techniques in interviews and how the studio technology works. Besides this, you get a taste of what it’s like to moderate a radio show, since you’ll be planning, designing and moderating your own radio shows. The workshop will be led by a professional radio editor.
