The Rock-itt : November 2010
Frank Harrison ‘Theatre of the Mind’ – Mondays 9-10am The Radio Players are one of the most venerable stalwarts of the arts at the station, having performed and recorded their own plays at the RNB studios for broadcast through the show, ‘Theatre of the Mind’. The plays are mainly written by the performers and set in a time before the evil medium of television ruined all our lives. This self-produced creativity then wings its way to air via the now Frank Harrison fronted show. Frank had become fascinated by the station after catching an article about the station in the Manly Daily three years ago and found a happy home helming the Radio Players programs. Ironically his amateur dabbling in theatre had already seen the retiree from the motor trade ‘MC’ plenty of stage productions. Glenn Fisher ‘Rock ‘n’ Rhythm – Saturdays 5-7pm A decade ago Glenn was training to be a volunteer for the Paralympics when she discovered her teacher was an RNB presenter and she says, “It didn’t take much to get me on board”. This is literally true as Glenn has just been elected to the RNB Board of Directors. Outside of her fairly self explanatory fifties and sixties “real” rock and roll show, her interests and links to the community are huge. She is, deep breath, a Member of the Order of Australia, Justice of the Peace, carer for a handicapped daughter and on the Community Participation Committee for Northern Sydney Central Coast Area Health Service. Phew, but it’s Glenn’s radio show that keeps her fired up because she says she’s, “Just a young at heart rocker!” The Radio Skills Workshop – Saturday November 20th The Radio Northern Beaches Radio Skills Workshop is the current method fort want-to-be broadcasters to get to present a program on the station; it also serves as a great one-day exposure to the world of community radio for those seeking to dip their toes in the water. Becoming more and more popular in recent times dues to an increase in interest most of our quarterly workshops are entirely booked out. A wide range of useful areas are covered including broadcast techniques, interview skills, program planning all the way through to media law. The one day course runs from 9am to 4.30pm on a Saturday four times a year and costs $100.00 for attendance and with the next course rapidly approaching; those interested should proceed with haste in booking a spot. This can be done via the Northern Beaches Community College on 9970 1000. with Julian Brown
