Ever wondered how a radio show gets made? Our ambassador from the USA, and student at Mary Immaculate College in Limerick Elanor McDevitt shows us how it’s done!

This week I wanted to show you the work that goes into recording an episode of a radio show.

Mary Immaculate College is the home to Limerick’s only fully licenced student radio station, WiredFM, and I’m lucky enough to co-host two shows a week. WiredFM is run entirely by student volunteers and allows any student to come on air and talk about their interests or opinions.

This video shows you the steps of pre-recording one of our shows. This show was part of an ongoing series in which we analyze an album from an artist one of us likes — this particular week our choice was The Eagles.

Getting involved with the radio station wasn’t something I had even considered before coming to Ireland. I don’t regret it for a second. Being on the radio is definitely one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had since moving to Limerick.
