Another Update: LSM’s Radio, Sound & Music Symposium II

This Symposium “was based around the key themes of future directions & opportunities in the radio and music industries” said Organiser and LSM’s Principal Lecturer Bryan Rudd.  The event certainly hit its aims as you’ll see when you read Bryan’s super summary of the day.  

SeanSean Strange is a third year student at the Lincoln School of Media.  He found time in the run up to his finals to capture the LSM’s Radio, Sound & Music Symposium II at the start of this month.  See Sean’s images in the slideshow, below. Thanks, Sean!  Another piece to add to your growing portfolio of work perhaps?  Please do keep us posted on how you’re doing when you graduate.

Update: Radio, Sound & Music Symposium II

The sun shone today at LSM’s Radio, Sound & Music Symposium II.  Radio experts, creatives and music specialists, including a panel of our graduates working in the industry gave valuable insider knowledge to students.  Having worked in local radio, both ILR and BBC, albeit a while back (before I joined ITV factual) the advice still rang true:  Come up with ideas and say how you’d produce it. Contact people you like to listen to or you fancy a job they’re doing. Look at the range of jobs (not just presentation and news) and target indies, as well as the main industry players.  Don’t turn down freelance work because there’ll be someone else to do it.  Happy days!
