Interview with Laurie Charlesworth (Part 1)
The music industry is very hard to get into – how did you get out there and promote yourself and did you find it hard?
I started off doing a lot of free work. I think a lot of people do. Although I studied Radio Production at (Bournemouth) University, I only did that so that I had the time allowance from the course, and the funding from student finance, to do the work experience. The music and radio industries are all about meeting people, doing as much as you can to build some skills and, I hate the word, network!
