Eat My Lunch..........with Rachel?

Rachel with Charlie Davey

Rachel is on a two week work experience placement from her school - Brentwood County High.

Below she reports back on her first week at the station.



I started off being shown how to find the news and weather for the presenters. Mike then asked me to read out the weather on air for the 1st time on my 1st day so i did on his show,  Eat my Lunch. I then did the charts and weather later that day on Drive with Bryan.


The next day Mike had a schedule for me to run in and out of the studio with local news and entertainment news and some audio. I also read out the weather on Eat my Lunch. I then did some work on Eastenders and the storylines on Bryan's show Drive, read out the weather and finished.


On Wednesday I got interviewed by Mike on Eat my Lunch on his feature, "Legend in your own Lunchtime"a nd also played some music i had requested. I requested Firestarter by The Prodigy and Castles in the Sky by Ian Van Dahl. Mike asked me questions about things like school and my hobbies outside school. I then also did the normal entertainment and local news and the weather on his show. Later on I went on air with Bryan and we chatted about popular Christmas toys.


On Thursday i did my normal schedule with Mike running in and out of the studio with entertainment and local news and the weather and we also interviewed the band  "Kinch" which i had researched earlier that day. We asked them questions about their gigs and the music they liked and then Mike played their new song. I later on researched about new singles and albums coming out and went onto Charlie's show Drive and chatted about them and then stayed in the studio to watch him do an interview and also chat every now and then.
