Hi everyone, I’m Sam! I’ve been an active member of Rare for two years now, and part of the committee this year as a scheduling manager.

As I said for other roles, my comprehensive knowledge of Rare FM’s yearly activities makes me a strong candidate. I have really enjoyed giving my input into the Rare calendar this year and so I would love to have a more active role in it next year by managing its direction through social media. I want to find a diverse range of artists to make the design of UnCL and Rare more bright and colourful, to grab the attention of our audience more.

And in this spirit of diversity, I also aim to use the coming year to source opportunities in music and radio for people who are less widely recognised in the industry. Therefore, my main marketing aim is to connect with those in the industry who can facilitate that. With this I can also help brand the image of Rare as the diverse community it is and promote it further inside and outside of UCL, to get more recognition for our society.

To this end I would like to update and add to the studio handbook, and also make a digital version of it easily accessible to all presenters. I would also like to make myself more widely contactable as the studio manager by making sure all members are aware of my role and feel comfortable contacting me.

On top if this I would love to work with other committee members in order to explore the possibility of upgrading the sound-quality of the studio in general by buying a few small items such as new headphones and 3.5 mm jacks, a third pop filter for mic 3, newer RCA cables for the turntables and mixers etc... Hopefully this wouldn't be too costly for the station and would make the whole presenting and producing experience easier for members of the broadcasting team.

In terms of experience qualifying me for this role: I am a DJ and station producer at Threads Radio, and thereby have a fair amount of experience working with sound equipment, and especially radio equipment used to broadcast online. I have also worked (albeit at ...
