The engineering team, the people that make everything work. No one argues with an engineer because they hold the station's output in the palm of their hand. Responsible for making sure that the studios and equipment work, that the station is outputting audio, and most importantly that the audio sounds good. Without engineers we'd have no radio station.
The engineering team are a vital part of both the day to day running of the station and any outside broadcasts. They work magic with cables and help us produce radio from the most unlikely of places, whether that be a shipping container at Lancaster City's football ground, the foyer of the Great Hall during Freshers' Fair or from down on the rugby pitches during Roses.
Useful skills: An ear for audio quality, knowledge of basic audio kit, an understanding of electronics, recognising the hot end of a soldering iron and bunches of enthusiasm. Engineers are always the first people to arrive at events and more than often the last ones to leave.
At Bailrigg FM we have some of the best student radio facilities in the country including two broadcast capable studios and a production suite - all of which were designed, organised and fitted out by engineering teams gone by, not paid experts. If you're interested in a technical career in radio then this is the place to start out.
The current Chief Engineer is Tony Chung and you can email him at with the form below if you have any specific questions or if you're interested in joining the Engineering team, and want to find out more.
