Total Choice Radio is a community radio station which offers a unique chance for
young people to learn new media skills and put them into practice during live broadcasts.
I am the Managing Director and we went live full time on 31st October 2009 on 106.8fm
(Tamworth) and online at www.tcrfm.co.uk
TCR fm have broadcast twice as a temporary station as an RSL (restricted service
licence) to cover Tamworth, focusing on the 12-24 age range; something no other station
in the area does. TCR fm's first broadcast took place over Summer 2005 from Saturday
30th July to Friday 26th August 2005 and then again in August 2007 both on 106.9
I have led some studio training and testing. It's quite tricky trying to co-ordinate
all of the buttons in new surroundings but that's part of the challenge, especially
when you are live on air!
TCR fm have some purpose-built studios in Tamworth Youth Centre in the centre of
Tamworth, Staffordshire. This includes our on air studio and a second studio for
news and production work.
Sundays 10am - 12pm (Yes it’s late for breakfast, call it brunch if you like!)
I play old and new pop and alternative tracks, nothing too heavy or too fussy.
All of the team work voluntarily and offer free training on many aspects of working
in radio. TCR fm is a not-for-profit community organisation.
The “Two From One” is where I play 2 songs from 1 year which could be any from the
1960’s to today. It’s just a great excuse to play 2 tracks that may not normally
get played on the radio, they could be the biggest hits of the year or long forgotten
It’s one clip of music muddled. Straightforward. Or is it? There’s a real song hidden
away amongst the noise and you’ve got to identify it. Try and get both the artist
and song title right. We’ll tell you what the wrong entries are in an attempt to
help you get it.
