Recruitment Update

Eve Radio News

Greetings folks!

As mentioned late last year we have begun to totally revamp our recruitment and scheduling system to allow for a much more standardised broadcast format so listeners will always know what to expect from an on air DJ and dodgy musical sub genres have been sent to burn in hell.

We have also expanded on the number of active DJ slots on Eve Radio to allow more room for aspiring DJ's to pick up a slot and contribute to our fantastic live lineup. All of these new slots are 2 hours long and suit time pressed North Americans who haven't been able to get on the schedule due to lack of time or slot availability previously.

Along with all that we have streamlined our recruitment process and done away with everything that was confusing our poor testers and applicants alike. From now onwards, anyone wanting to apply for a slot on Eve Radio will be able to see which slots are up for grabs via the websites internal recruitment section.

From there you will see all the new and currently available slots that have yet to be filled. Within each of the displayed recruitment articles are exact details regarding the slot, what musical genres need to be played, what audience figures can be expected and other slot relevant information. From that form you can connect to our new Eve Radio 2011 application ticket system which applicants will need to fully complete in order to be considered for one of the 23 existing vacancies.

This new system doesnt work on a first come first served basis. Each application for a specific slot will have to hit a certain number or time threshold before applicants are interviewed and tested. In a case where there are several applicants for the same slot only one will be retained (obviously the person who we believe is most suitable for the slot) although those tested and considered broadcast worthy will be invited to apply for a different slot if available. Where there are none, their record will be kept on file and if a position opens up they will be invited to try out for it before the position is advertised globally.

Although this is a positive move forwards we admit there have been some problems with recruitment over the last few months. We have addressed these now and hope the new system will work much better for all concerned. Regretably, anyone who has applied within the last 6 weeks that has yet to hear from us or been interviewed will need to reapply via the new system. Please check the current slot availability via the Recruitment section of the website and have at it.

The aim here is to meet the needs of the majority rather than lose people through constant exposure to music that puts the majority off. While there will be the odd random tune that isn't in the spot targetted genre, the majority burn in hellfire.

The rest of what you mentioned will still be there, just not going from one DJ playing mostly rock to J-Pop and vice versa. The idea is to gently change things up while still allowing for a little eclectic variety.

It's either that or we keep things chaotic and stagnate. We want to evolve and grow.

In your first paragraph you write: dodgy musical sub genres have been sent to burn in hell.

That and your assurance that I will know what to expect frankly put me off. Is EVE Radio to become just another radio channel?

I don't want another local radio with "programming". I want eclectics, good music, talkies, call-ins, in-game relevance and mockery - and the occasional disturbing surprise ripping me out of my reverie.

I don't have to like everything. There are DJ's I enjoy for their ability to keep the chat interesting and alive, but which music basically sucks donkey. Others act in a threatening manner, but which have led me to music I never knew I liked.

Never become habitual! Recruit the maddest of the mad.
