Overall Intention:

To create regular slots on air (anything between 1 minute to 5 minutes) on the Crystal FM radio program for local people of all ages to share their own voice
  • reading their own or their favourite poetry or prose
  • retelling or telling a story – one they made themselves, or one they like

The slots will be announced as “The Spoken Word Spot” 

Quality of Recording is of essence, therefore, to be aired, all final pieces shall be recorded with the high quality  radio microphones, and preferably in the quiet of the Crystal FM studio.
Colin is making himself available to do the final recording with each person in the studio.
Timeslot bookings must be made via Ruth from the Penicuik Arts. Contact details at end of document.

Preparations for having your voice heard on radio:

If you are not used to having your voice recorded, it is advised you practise a bit with a recording devise you might have (mobile phone, tablet, PC, etc): record yourself reading or speaking, listen back, learn from your voice, and record again.
Ruth is also making herself available for coaching people of all ages in reading/speaking and recording practise sessions in the Penicuik library on Tuesday and Friday afternoons . Book your slot, as an individual or as a group, in the library or directly with her. There are the following availabilities;
  • Tuesdays 3.30pm – 6pm
  • Fridays 1.30pm – 4.30pm

Final recording in the Crystal FM studio

(in the former Edinburgh Crystal place, round corner from Beatsons, behind Tesco)
These times are potential slots for you to come. Booking is a must. Each slot is at least 15 minutes long, but will take as long as it takes. Max 45 min. Discuss with Ruth.
Mondays: 4pm – 7.45pm
Tuesdays: 11am – 1.45pm; and 3pm – 5.45 pm
Wednesdays: 10 am – 1.45pm
Fridays: 10 am – 5.45 pm
Saturdays: 10.30 am – 11.45 am

There is a Public “The Spoken Word Spot” Calendar where everyone can check which slots are already taken. Ruth will update this calendar which is part of Penicuik Arts.
On this calendar you will also see when recordings will go on air via crystal fm. Colin will email Ruth as soon as he knows when which recordings will be aired. Ruth will then share these times on social media, too. (twitter https://twitter.com/Penicuikarts , facebook https://www.facebook.com/PCAAWestSt )
