MANAGING:

Initially hoping to pursue acting and then music, Hazel Lake has managed to carve out a career combining her love for Irish music and radio by working as Production Manager in Dublin City FM. -
“My mother wouldn’t let me move up to Dublin because I was too young. When I was 19 I finally moved up then and went to Coláiste Dhúlaigh to do sound Production and communications,” Hazel said.
-
“I got involved with Ciarán Black who does the Battle of the Bands. We then started doing King Kong Radio which was on RTE 2XM – which isn’t exactly radio as its digital.”
-
“We recorded the bands live and did interviews with them as well at the venue and we made a radio show out of that. I was doing that for a long time.”
-
Hazel became involved with Dublin City FM through a Tús scheme six years ago. When the 12-month scheme finished, she stayed on as a volunteer. She took her current post two years ago.
-
“It is quite creative in ways. You have to be on your feet the whole time. We don’t have a talent pool, we can’t hire a group of people. Generally it’s making sure that noting goes to dead air.”
-
“It is only myself that is here full-time. Even after hours, you might get a phonecall saying there’s something wrong at the station, maybe the power has tripped. You need to be okay with getting a call at 2 o’clock in the morning when there is something wrong with the computer.”
-
In the future, she said, the station will be relocating to a new premises by the end of 2020.
-
“As a community station, you can’t scale up too much. We can’t become commercial but it would be great if we had the same listenership.”

FACILITATING:

In a community radio station, there are not only volunteer presenters and sound engineers but there are also roles in facilitating and management.

Megan Forrest works at Dublin City FM as the CEO’s assistant, “My role is to make sure everyone is here when they are supposed to be and if they are not to make sure they are okay. I have everyone’s name written down and after a couple of days the name becomes a face,” she said.
-
"I really love it, I love facilitating people – getting people in to do work experience or play the music that they want to play or highlight things that are going on in the community. The facilitation for me is really satisfying.”
-
Megan also experiences what the community station by holding her own show, “It’s certainly informed my administration role, because I get to see what the presenters are doing and what they need. It’s been a massive challenge because I never did it before.
-
“I present a film show based on Irish and independent films. It’s great fun to be able to sit there and analyse things and take them apart in a positive way. Every time I present, I get an adrenaline rush and I love it,” said Megan.

LEARNING:

Dublin City FM facilitates many internship programmes both at home and abroad. Pia Eichinger is working at the station as part of a three-month internship.

The 19-year-old is currently on a gap year. She is using the experience to go towards her university application to study journalism in Germany. “At first I wanted to go abroad after my graduation, I graduated last year from school. I also wanted to go to an English speaking country to build on my language skills but I also wanted to get an insight on journalism,” Pia explained.

Pia learned about Dublin City FM through a German organisation that facilities internships, “I told them about my visions and they said Ireland would be the best place for it. They said they had good experiences with Dublin City FM.”
-
“It takes time to become hands on in the station,” she said. However after a few weeks she began podcasting, managing social media and recording news. She is now a part of the Mental Wealth programme.

VOLUNTEERING:

Dublin City FM relies on a large number of volunteers to keep it on the airwaves. Michael Glynn has been involved for over 25 years. He acts as the station’s Executive Producer and News Editor.

His career in radio started 35 years ago after being let off a job in engineering, “I was listening to my bed-side radio on my local station in Skerries. I heard a voice asking­­ if anybody was interested in radio to contact them. It caught my attention at the time,” he said.
-
“I ended up running projects in Dun Laoghaire to train people in broadcast radio and community radio. When Anna Livia came on the air, as it was called then – I heard that they were looking for programme makers and I approached the man who was in charge at the time and I told him with my project­ we would be able to do various programmes for the station."
-
He went on to explain what he saw are the differences between commercial and community radio, “Commercial radio deals with one thing and one thing only; making money. In that respect, they would look to the amount of listeners they have for their programmes. If nobody is listening to you, you’re not going to get the advertising.”
-
"With community radio, their challenge “is how best they serve the community in which they are located. Also to a certain extent how much opportunity they give for local people to become involved in radio.”

What do you think of when you hear about volunteering or community radio?

Community-led radio station Dublin City FM first broadcast as Anna Livia FM from a room in a Capel Street building belonging to Dublin City Corporation. It all started when it was awarded a two-week licence during the celebrations of Dublin's first 1000 years.

The group then looked for a longer licence and was awarded one in 1992. It moved to Grafton Street in the heart of Dublin's main shopping belt where it stayed for several years.

The station relies on a large number of volunteers to keep it on the airwaves. There are only two paid roles; CEO and Production Manager. Volunteers can become involved by submitting a show proposal. “We have lots of different types of shows. Originally our licence was like that, we had to have special interest programmes. Now it’s just a community licence, which has been much more beneficial. We were in limbo before – we weren’t commercial, we weren’t community radio and we couldn’t get funding from both,” said DCFM’s Production Manager Hazel Lake.

The station has moved premises over the past 16 years, from Grafton Street to Griffith College to Liffey Trust. The station is now based in the Docklands Innovation Park since 2007. In 2001, Anna Livia FM was renamed Dublin City Anna Livia to reflect their link with Dublin City Council. However, in 2007 the station decided to rebrand by renaming it Dublin City FM. This change in name reflected the changing face of Dublin city and its multi-cultural citizens. #communityradio #dublincityfm
