The other weekend I was taken to Swindon to meet up with my brothers and sisters, along with our mum! It had been the first time in about 18months since I’d seen my sister Noodles, and my brother Barney. We all had great fun in a huge field chasing a few…

This weekend my lovely owners took me to visit their parents in Somerset! The air was so clean and the grass so green! We walked all the way to the top of the hill where I looked out across the land! You could even see Glastonbury Tor in the distance!…

It’s an institution that marked my childhood! I’m sure you too, can remember going to Our Price, Virgin Megastore or HMV (or of course Woolworths or WHSmith) to get your hands on the double CD or double Cassette tape of the latest Now album. Once you…

This weekend was very windy. My owners had a mission on their hands. They had to make a wardrobe! So I guarded the house while they quickly drove to Ikea! When they came back there was lots of drilling and other noises! I didn’t really help, instead I…

Website Developer & Media Producer
Radio Production, Website Development
- Fred BradleyWeb Developer and Media Producer, 2012 - presentWorking Freelance on a number of web development projects. Some of which are my own in my spare time, others are paid clients. Listed below in no particular order. 1. “Helpful Radio Backtimer” (2013 - Ongoing), Initially developed for a friend who clearly didn’t like using a pen, paper and his GCSE maths! With a bit of extra effort and some appropriate styling, I ended up with an application that could be used in the studio to quickly back-time the last few actions in your hour’s log. 2. “Who’s On Heart Searchable Database” (2012 - Ongoing), I was commissioned by Heart to develop an online database where users (listeners) could search to see if their guesses for the three secret celebrities had already been guessed. This project involved building my own basic XML API, to return results in the quickest possible time. In the space of 5 weeks the system had 3.5million guesses made. 3. “RajarSmilies” (2011 - Ongoing), Simplifying complicated radio statistics with an ‘emoticon’. I have built - and continue to develop each quarter - a database managed website that is used, and visited by 1,000s of professionals from all across the radio industry, both at home and abroad. www.rajarsmilies.com 4. “Quonkay” (2012), For some freelance coding work I was asked to develop a site that could perform a particular function what would enable the client to manage multiple sites, whilst boosting the ‘google juice’ for their main site. - It works very well! (PHP & MySQL coding). 5. Gappies.net (2007 - 2012), Online community for gap students. Conception, design, identity, CMS, PHP, HTML/CSS, Facebook App. - This was my final year University Dissertation project, for which I received a 1st grade result. I still own the site, but the project is dormant for the time being.
- ITNFreelance Technical Producer, 2013 - 2014I am a freelancer at ITN Productions. I am mainly a technical producer for a show called FYI Daily. Broadcast 7 days a week, FYI Daily is your 60 second fix of all the biggest stories from the world of entertainment. Shown primarily on ITV2 between programmes and movies, the bulletin is also seen on ITV3 and ITV4, reaching millions of viewers each week. This is my first role in TV production. I’m learning how to use the studio equipment including green screens, and the specialist software for show’s production called “Vidigo“.
- Smooth RadioProducer, 2012 - 2013Working from the London studios I get to produce a number of the station’s prominent shows and established presenters, including David Jensen, Emma B and Pat Sharp. Additionally I am also relied upon to do advert copy loading, and music scheduling for all day parts at times. I also assist the other regular show producers with their work loads when times are busy. The benefit of being freelance here is that I am able to work with a wide range of talent. Additionally take on special projects, when required.
- Global RadioProducer, 2012 - 2012I was asked to work with Simon Dale on Heart Requests as an ‘in-studio producer’ to alleviate the technical requirements of the show so he could concentrate on his presentation. I was writing a show plan each night and scheduling songs that had been requested using RCS Selector (within strict rules). Additionally, I was talking to callers, and picking ones suitable for air. I particularly enjoyed this role, not only as a sole producer with talent in the studio but also being able to learn about the incredibly difficult management of music scheduling.
- Global RadioBroadcast Assistant, 2009 - 2012Sony Radio Academy Award Nominated 2012 - “Breakfast Show of the Year (10m Plus)”. Beginning as work experience, I gradually added more things to my list. I sourced prep from newspapers, and brand relevant websites. Writing scripts for competitions, and commercial activity. Occasionally driving the desk using RCS Master Control. I managed guests’ hospitality and weekly planning sheets. I encouraged the team and on-air talent to embrace other mediums to broadcast, like social media and championed the use of video & photo content to support on air activity. - A difficult challenge at times.
- International Radio FestivalStudio Manager, 2012 - 2012During the London Olympics the “IRF” was one of two DAB licenses awarded by OfCom. On DAB in London, and right across Switzerland broadcasting live from a old Swiss postal bus, parked by London Bridge. My role was to manage the live broadcast, and all the equipment in the studio. Working with talent from Switzerland, France & the UK including internationally renowned DJs such as Kissy Sell Out, Normski, and Gilles Peterson.
- Student Radio AssociationChair, Chart Producer & South East Regional Officer, 2009 - 2013I managed a team of 6 in order to produce two key annual events. The Student Radio Awards cost approximately £75,000 - mainly made through industry support - and this year achieved over 600 award entries! The Student Radio Conference is a 3 day event held in a different location each year attended by 500 student delegates involving keynote speakers by professionals across the industry. Before this I had the role of Chart Producer, producing a nationally networked top 20 show to a syndicate of 20 stations, each week presented by a different SRA station.
- EMAPDigital Production Executive, 2013 - 2014Between November 2013 and April 2014, I took a sidestep in my freelance business to take up the role of Digital Production Executive at B2B magazine publishers, EMAP. The role was to manage the building over 82 websites per year, for yearly awards and conferences as part of the “EMAP Events” team. Working to set design briefs, and with content provided by the Marketing Executives, I changed the way the sites were built to better reflect the new web standards that are present in 2014. I built ‘mobile first‘ responsive websites using both commercial and open source CMS in HTML and CSS with some jQuery for functionality. Along side my normal work, I also took part in a project called “One Click Emails”. The team wanted a way to allow an end user to seamlessly submit a “Call Me Back” request into the company’s CRM tool (SalesForce) from one click of an email. This will mean that after the email campaign has been delivered a team of specialist telesales operators are ready to see the leads coming in and can call the end user back within minutes! After some toying around with PHP and automatic jQuery form submissions, I had worked out a way to do it, and in the small time I was with the company we sent out 4 campaigns using my bespoke script. The next stage of this project (which I’m hoping to be a part of on a freelance basis) is to allow users to intercept the form submission if their contact details are wrong. This will allow the company to have more accurate data, and reduce the current bounce rate of campaigns. Whilst at EMAP I was lucky enough to be allow to go on 2 management training courses, and subsequently was responsible for the recruitment of a junior to the role of Digital Production Assistant.

I am a radio producer, recognised by The Radio Academy as one of 2012-2013's “30 under 30”. I have experience in working with well known personalities both at the top of their game, and also those just starting out.
I have a huge interest in new media technologies, and enjoy looking for where the next step for our industry will take us.
I am also an experienced web developer having taught myself to code from a young age. I like to solve problems and make life easy for a client. I enjoy a challenge in a project and like to test out new theories.
My current personal project is developing a mobile application called “The Helpful Radio Backtimer” - which is currently on sale on the Apple App Store - specifically developed for the radio industry.

Rochelle's business is fantastic. It took us a long time to find someone/somewhere that would cover our patch of Woking and we were lucky to come across Rochelle. She is brilliant is our labradoodle who she takes out for around 3 lunchtime walks a week from our home. Then occasionally - when we need it he goes to stay with her. (I think he makes her soft, as apparently he's the only dog to have been allowed upstairs!) It's lovely to see the photos of the walks that she does on Facebook. Price is extremely reasonable, and although she's very busy Rochelle is always easy to get hold of on either email or phone. 100% recommend, but don't want her to get too booked up by other people! :)
