Volunteer of the Month - Ryan Miller
November may bring the darker nights, but it's also a chance for us to introduce you to another of our hard-working volunteers - this month's Volunteer of the Month is host of Miller's Musical Mix - Ryan Miller!
When did you join Radio Royal?
I joined radio royal back in April 2013.
Tell us a little more about what you do at the station!
I am currently serving in the Executive Committee as the Training Manager where I organise training (with a little help from Kat!) for people who wish to become a presenter on the station. We currently have a few training nights during the week, but if I'm not doing that I host my show on a Wednesday where I play some fantastic music that everyone loves to listen to from back in the day.
Why did you decide to volunteer?
I read on the Radio Royal website what they get up to on a daily basis like presenting shows and doing production work - that was something that was really interesting to me. I thought it looked like something really fun to do so I applied to join and the rest, as they say, is history! It's been fun and I've been enjoying it over the last 5 years - who can say more?!?
What would you say to someone who was considering volunteering in hospital radio?
I would say go for it because it's really fun to do - you get to meet great people, you get to learn how radio works, you make new friends on the way and you gain a lot of experience while you're in Radio Royal I would say go for it!
