Festive Fun at Highdown School Radio!

 

The Highdown Radio team have been working hard this term creating jingles to promote the radio extra-curricular club and show off the equipment available to staff as a learning resource when using curriculum based content.

They meet at lunchtimes and after school for the extra-curricular club which is open to all students. Students can opt to come each week or just participate in a single podcast for a particular event. Job roles include presenting, reporting, marketing or helping with the music technology.

Unfortunately we are only able to broadcast most of their work at radio club within school due to licencing, however we are able to share with you the lyrics to one their most recent seasonal jingles which was sung by Callie Gosling 7H. Also involved were Tom Peat 7K, Becky Turner 7H, Izzy Tyacke 7K and James Drew 7K.

 

Highdown radio jingle to the tune of the traditional song 12 Days of Christmas 

"On the first day of radio, this is what did; recorded a radio show."

"On the second day of radio, this is what did; composed our own jingles and recorded a radio show."

"On the third day of radio, this is what did; sang our favourite tunes, composed our own jingles and recorded a radio show."

"On the fourth day of radio, this is what did; interviewed some teachers, sang our favourite tunes, composed our own jingles and recorded a radio show."

"On the fifth day of radio, this is what did; shared Highdown news, interviewed some teachers, sang our favourite tunes, composed our own jingles and recorded a radio show."
