Even in the seventh Harry Potter book the radio was working, why should we be an exception?
We haven't been in the office since the 6th of March, I don't think I need to explain why.
My project is connected with working on the local radio Mustár FM in the Hungarian city Nyíregyháza. We make programs in English - World Politics, Experience the World, Gossip, Point of View, Cultural, Free Topic, and also have programs in our native tongues (Russian, Italian, French and we still hope that volunteers from Spain and Germany will come). Our working days included scheduling, discussing of topics, searching for information, recording and post-production. As you understand, recording is the main part and after losing access to the radio studio our activities were frozen. However distance work is possible even if you work on the radio! Our boss found the solution and brought us dictaphones... so the show must go on!
But how to get back the mood and enthusiasm? How can we continue to gossip about the lives of celebrities now? Perhaps the most difficult thing for me nowadays is to choose a topic for the program. But at the same time I think we are tired of bad news, I had a personal experience when I spent two days in bed, reading the news about the coronavirus... please, DO NOT do the same!
The real power is born in our heads, weakness, unfortunately, too. I agree with this now more than ever. Yes, the situation is still difficult, but I can work in my room with a dictaphone, laptop and... with the hope of returning to the studio as soon as possible :)
