MY-G Radio

TDC’s Moulsecoomb Young Men’s Group, recently teamed up with Platform B, a Brighton based next generation radio station, to produce three incredible radio shows. 

This journey to becoming DJs began for the group with tours of Platform B's North Street and Bottega Rooms Studios. Here the group got to spend time with Platform B's Senior Producer Bobby Brown and Radio Producer Ed ApIvor who led the project alongside TDC Youth Worker SeanO.

The group had eight training sessions with Platform B's radio experts across two months. They got to experiment with microphones, recording set ups and DJ equipment -- building up their skills before creating their own hour-long shows. The young people had full editorial control of the content of their shows, creating brilliant results; having fun and expressing themselves through the culture they love. We're delighted to be able to premiere the radio shows here on TDC's blog.

The flagship My G Radio Show features the whole group introducing different tracks chosen for the show. The second two shows feature two DJ duos Jacob & Riley and Jack & Shane presenting the entire hour themselves.

"This was such an important project for our young people. Bringing together the disciples of Youth Work and music production created a unique playground for the young people to discover skills, make new connections, and grow in their own sense of self. Youth work is a unique tool that journeys alongside young people to look into life with perspective and respect. Platform B slotted straight into that ethos, allowed room for people to access audio activities in their own way, added industry-standard value, extended the project's potential, and enabled young people to see outside of their neighborhoods and into the studio.

Privileged to have led this project, work with these young people, and co-delivered something very replicable with Platform B!"

“Platform B are proud to have had the chance to have collaborated with TDC on this project. It was amazing to see how readily the young men got stuck into DJing and it was also a testament to the Youth Work team that so many felt empowered to get involved with the project and use their voice. We hope this collaboration will inspire more young people from East Brighton to get involved in creating radio and developing new skills.”

Ed ApIvor, Radio Producer - Platform B

The young people grew in confidence and trust throughout the project. The courage to be vulnerable around each other led to new relationships developing through their shared experiences. It was a great learning experience for everyone involved and it is a project that I’ll always be proud to have been a part of.”
