Breakfast Show Takeovers

Tags: volunteers schedule
If you'd like to take over an edition of The Lie-In, it's pretty simple - send your playlist of 25 or so (if you can include some Irish acts, and as radio-safe as possible) tracks to info@flirtfm.ie, and we'll be in touch, letting you know how you can record an intro and a jingle on your smartphone. Keep an eye our Twitter and Instagram for upcoming guests, and listen back to previous guests on Flirt FM's Archive Mixcloud.
The shows run from 09:00-11:00 weekdays, there's news headlines at 09:30 & 10:30.

What audio would I be recording for links?
  • Record an intro - 30-60 seconds (or more, you both might be feeling talkative!), into your phone.
  • Record a one-liner saying something like "Hi, this is *your name(s)* I'm/we're currently in *however detailed you want to be* and I'm/we're taking over the lie-in this morning. 
  • You can do a goodbye too, and shout out to anyone you'd like. 
  • It's up to you how much you'd like to record! Some people have done links for in between every few songs too.
How do I get a good recording out of my phone? 
  • Find the quietest place in your house (away from buzzing appliances).
  • The more soft furnishings in the room the better for sound.
  • Do a quick test recording and listen back to make sure you're not too loud or close to the mic.
  • Most people find that a well-reviewed third-party voice recording  app sounds better than the one that came with your phone.
  • Whatsapp audio can be good quality too.
  • No need to do any big edits, if you make a mistake, just take the sentence again. Also no need for any effects, processing or "radio voice", we'll take care of tidying up your files for broadcast!
