Frome FM produces a weekly programme for the Frome Talking Newspaper organisation.

The version for the blind and partialy-sighted clients is distributed on memory sticks which we duplicate in the studio and pass on to the Frome Talking Newspaper organisers for posting.
We are looking for someone with recording, editing and technical skills to carry out this task on a regular basis - weekly or monthly. The task will take about 4 hours of your time, beginning at 2pm on a Thursday and finishing about 6pm when the editing and duplication is done..
