Our plans for the launch of Mildmay Community Radio – from the garden deck of the centre – have been thwarted several times by unusually adverse weather. We can’t do al fresco radio if it’s cold or wet outside.
So we will launch it twice and you are invited to both …
This will be a normal Monday afternoon learning event in the main hall. We will demonstrate the equipment we use for internet radio and podcasts — and hopefully convince you that this is something you could do yourself at home. Everybody can have a go.
It will be live internet radio, not a short podcast episode. The acoustics on the main hall are not good, so professional sound quality will not be on the menu – but we will at least have got something started.
We have also set up all our training phones to pick up the live stream. So you will have an easy way to listen (though not yet to phone in).
We can do this on the garden deck (outside the café area) – provided the weather is on our side. The outdoor acoustics are usually excellent, and our equipment can handle most intrusive noises.
The provisional topic is Mildmay Community Centre itself – and what older people can achieve there.
Everyone who turns up is a part of fluid studio audience. But not all at once. We have 4 microphones, so up to 4 people can be part of the conversation – while the others wait their turn.
The conversation picked up by the microphones is streamed to an online radio server. Anyone who knows the link can listen.
By the way – here is the link: live.radiotogether.uk (when there is no live talk stream, the server just sends a loop of recorded birdsong).
You don’t need any digital skills to participate. The important skills are the skills you have been learning for decades – talking and listening, sharing your life experiences as an older person who remembers life before the internet.
Bring them to the Monday event.
Sam (multi-talented community outreach worker at Mildmay Community Centre) chats with Hardeep about her work and life. We also learn about gardening and community cooking at the centre.
Recorded 19 December 2022 in the Live Room at Mildmay Community Centre, London N16
Hardeep talks to Winston the Geezer about his life with dance and music. Winston is the Monday afternoon dance instructor at Mildmay Community Centre (to join the group, just be there at 1 pm).
Recorded 7 November 2022 in the Live Room at Mildmay Community Centre, London N16.
The best place to listen is radiotogether.uk/hardeep — but as you are here now, try the playlist below …
No technical skills required — just the ability to tell a story about your life or ask someone else to tell you a story.
We take care of the tech, but you can learn that as well if you really want to. There are many ways to make your own podcast show, even if all you have is a smartphone.
If you are interested, come over to the regular podcast learning session …
Sometimes we skip a Friday afternoon session, so it’s best to contact us before coming (send an email to email@example.com )
