Yoo wassup everybody, intern Hamza here. Apologies for my lack of updates in the last couple of weeks, I’ve just been getting caught up in the station!! My last 2 weeks were spent working with MistaJam’s Team. Although we spent a lot of time arguing about how to correctly make tea, a lot of work was done. I spent my time cleaning mixes, researching show features and just learning about the structure of the show as a whole. All in all it was great to be working on grime and hiphop from a professional perspective and I can only end by saying a massive big ups to Mistajam, his producer Janine and assistant producer James.
This week I’ve started with the visualisation team and it’s been a good start. I’ve had the chance to expand my filming and editing knowledge + meet some very cool people.
Anyways that’s me for now, I’ll keep you updated in due course. PEACE!
Jaguar and Ore had a late breakfast chat with the lovely Kisses For Breakfast singer Melissa Steel!
Soooooo I’ve just finished working on Gemma Cairney’s show for the week which meant coming into work at 5AM and 3:45AM today (!!!!).
Admittedly, I felt like someone had smashed my alarm clock into my skull when I had to get up at 3AM this morning and was filled with both horror and despair at how unnaturally early it was:
All I can say is thank da Loooord for coffee. I’ve started documenting my caffeine intake on a ‘Coffee Count’ chart I made. I wonder how many I will have consumed by the end of the 8 weeks!
However, as soon as I got to the studio, and the electronic housey vibes of the previous show hit me, I felt alive again. The rush being at Radio 1 gives you is the best wake up call you can get, and soon enough, I was laughing away those early morning blues with Gemma and Producer Rhodri!
I’ve had the most incredible time working on this show, Gemma is hilarious to work with and her bubbly, fun-loving character is contagious!
We had a little chat about Mr Motivator, some 90’s dude in pink lycra on-air this morning which was both ridiculous and surreal! You can check it out here!
Despite it having been a long week, I refreshed and uplifted after working on her show!
Big up ICE GEM!
Today Jilly and Jaguar bonded with Ella Eyre over cats, big hair… and swimming caps at the incredible BBC Maida Vale Studios!
