Alex Burgess, presenter on Capital North East, joined us live for this week's Telling Tales.

Formerly a Media Production student at the University of Sunderland, and DriveTime / Local Music Show presenter on Spark, Alex shares her journey from student radio to commercial radio - from being noticed after a silver-winning "Best Female" demo to covering shifts on Capital, and everything in-between.

Alex shares advice for emerging radio presenters / producers; on how to create a stand-out demo, enhance your voiceover technique and get into voiceover work, and how to make the most of your time in student radio / university.

Telling Tales is your weekly chance to hear some of the talented audio drama and documentary producers in / around Sunderland.

Join us on Spark every Thursday at 10am.

Telling Tales is presented & produced by Jay Sykes & Emma Casson.
