Talented students celebrate World Radio Day

April 2, 2015

Students from West Cheshire College used their musical talents to help promote gender equality as part of UNESCO’s World Radio Day*.

Music Practice students performed various songs in the rotunda of the College’s Ellesmere Port Campus to celebrate the global event on Friday 13th February. All the songs were recorded and broadcasted live on the College’s radio station, Daemon Radio.

Students sang various hits including Girls Just Want to Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper, One Way or Another by Blondie and Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody which aimed to promote gender equality on the airwaves.

Paul Moss, Programme Leader for Music and Acting at West Cheshire College, said: “It is important for our students to understand and get involved with global issues so it was a perfect opportunity to celebrate World Radio Day.

“The event was used to promote gender equality as well as celebrate the importance of radio and ensure the medium continues in the future despite new technology. It was also great that the College’s dedicated radio station Daemon Radio was there to record and broadcast the performance.”

Music Practice students also showcased four different charity singles during the performance which will be used at a Hillsborough charity gig at Whitby Sports and Social club on Saturday 18th April.
