STATION MANAGER

Oscar Edmondson   I am so excited to be taking over Burst this year and I have big plans! I want to take advantage of the wealth of creativity that Burst attracts and increase the diversity and quality of the content that we create. I also want to form a real community around Burst and cement it as one of the most active societies at Bristol University. This starts with the brilliant committee that we have assembled for 2019/20!  As station manager I am responsible for the overall media product and the committee but also you guys, the listeners and students. If you have any questions, please email: stman.burstradio@gmail.com

Eleanna Amias: Interviews   At day camp (circa the pearly summer nights of early youth) I refused to answer to anything other than ‘The El-Meister’. What the El-Meister lacked in 11-year old friends and self-awareness she made up for in copious amounts of Cred. It is this quirkiness that I will bring to Burst’s interviews.  At Burst, we have brilliant links with local venues, and I want to improve our interviews and their presentation to the student body. Email: interviews.burstradio@gmail.com
