MUSIC, interviews and topical discussions have been filling the airwaves at Backwell School.
A team of talented pupils, led by station manager Edward Callow, has begun running its own radio station to examine current affairs, play popular tunes and inteview people of interest.
Headteacher Julian Baldwin was the first to go in front of the microphone on the station’s launch day earlier this month.
The station broadcasts live at lunchtimes and plays a stream of music throughout the day.
Fellow pupils can listen via computers on the school’s network and in the common rooms, the theatre and IT rooms during lunch times.

The station was set up with money raised from a non-school uniform day along with a kind donation from Backwell School Association.
Students can post comments and request music for the broadcasts on Twitter or Facebook.
