Volunteering

Volunteers are the heart and soul of community radio.

We invite you to join our 100 or so volunteers, who come from all walks of life.  Whether it’s a couple of hours a month in the office, a regular on-air gig or helping out for special events, there’s a place for you.

Some of our volunteers are musicians, others have an interest in the performing or visual arts. Some enjoy the technical side of the operation, while others contribute office administration and financial skills. Many simply love music.

Here are just a few of the things our volunteers do. You don’t need previous broadcasting experience, as we provide training for on-air roles.

Presenting music or spoken word programs. We’re proud of the diversity in our programming. On a typical day, we broadcast 12 hours or more of locally-produced live or recorded programs. There are also opportunities to present on our special Silver Memories service, which goes to aged care facilities throughout Canberra.

Production: If you have experience in recording program content including interviews and/or being involved in producing the finished product (editing and compiling a finished program) we’d love to hear from you. Knowledge of audio editing software an advantage but not essential.

Program Coordinators: Prepare schedules for individual on-air programs. The Coordinator liaises with presenters and staff to ensure all program slots are filled and running sheets are updated. They are also responsible for disseminating program guidelines to presenters.

Concert Recording Team: ArtSound FM records for broadcast local, national and international performers at venues in and around Canberra. Most concert recordings are in the evenings or weekends.

Outside Broadcasting Team: We present live outside broadcasts from a variety of venues during the year.  We need people to anchor programs on site and in the studio, as well as be involved in the technical side.

Office Administration: This is an important part of the Station’s operations as it is often the first point of contact for potential members, volunteers and sponsors.
