TY Visit to NEAR FM Studios

 As plans for for the launch of Brunner FM continue some TY students paid a visit to the studios

of NEAR FM (available online at, a community radio station based on Dublin’s Northside. NEAR’s programming places a positive emphasis on supporting community development, providing access and providing a platform to a wide range of local groups.

Here the students met with station employees Dorothee and Paul to learn a little about what goes in to planning, producing and broadcasting radio shows. Besides receiving lot of good advice the students actually received the chance to plan and record their own short radio show. They decided to have a discussion panel around their views on the film ‘Stand By Me’ with Ryan Savage acting as host. It went really well and the Brunner lads showed plenty of potential for future careers in broadcasting. Make sure to keep an ear on the airwaves! Click to listen: Stand by me
