On Friday 24th November the BTEC Music Technology students went to visit Global Radio in Leicester Square.
Global own some of the UK’s most popular radio stations including Capital, Capital Xtra, Heart, Radio X and LBC.
The group went to visit a team from The Big Music Project who work with 14-25 year olds interested in a career in the creative industries. They had a very inspiring presentation about what it takes to work in the music business and about the skills and experience they will need to make it.
The group were then taken on a tour of the radio stations and got to see behind the scenes, the highlight of which was being invited in to have a chat with Russel Brand and Noel Gallagher as they recorded a show for Radio X, this clip was then actually broadcast as part of his show that week and a clip from it was also shared on social media - you can watch it here.
To top it all off the group have been invited back to attend the Music Potential showcase at KoKo in Camden in May as an extra reward! This was a trip which we will all be remembering for a long time yet and has inspired the group to continue following their visions of working in the music industry.
