Revisiting The Radio Production Awards

One of the biggest events in the radio calendar took place last night, celebrating the achievements of those who work hard behind the scenes and give hours of their time into making audio gems.

Which beggars the question, what on Earth was I doing there?

It was essentially a chance to catch-up with familiar faces from radio, and meet new ones and I must have done well in that respect, on the basis that I ran out of business cards.

Seriously though, there were some deserving recipients at the awards ceremony, hosted by
Jon Holmes who won a gong himself for Best Entertainment Producer.

 

 

Here’s some of the other worthy winners;

Sue Clark, winner of Best Music Entertainment Producer. Alongside her are team members Yvonne Mackey and Sarah Thompson.

Heather Davies and awards host Jon Holmes both from Unusual Productions. Heather managed to win the Best Multi-Platform Creator for her work on BBC Radio 2’s superb “Sounds Of The 20th Century”.

Double award-winner Rebecca Maxted from Wise Buddah, winning Best Documentary/Feature Maker and Producer Of The Year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was at this point that the drinks started to kick in, and I felt the need to mingle with those more talented than I am.

None more so than BBC Radio 6 Music’s Nemone.

A highlight of the night, meeting BBC Radio 2’s imaging producer Chris Reay whose new jingles for the station take to the air this coming Monday. I was only too keen to play him some of my syrupy JAM jingles from my smartphone.

Special mention must go out to Sarah Thompson who provided a really good DJ set for the event showcasing her wide knowledge of music from Jessie Ware to Fleetwood Mac. You done good!

About Robin Blamires

I live in Canterbury and really enjoy radio and audio producing. I currently present a show at community station CSR FM called "Blam Jam" where I play a wide selection of soul, jazz and electronica music, and elsewhere in the station I help out with producing the station sound, creating on-air idents and sweepers. I would love to bring my skills into professional radio and continue to learn more.
