It's a brilliant place to hone the craft of radio presenting and I have a lot to thank Vibe and its hardworking and brilliant team for." Olly Stock - Presenter, Skyline Events Live Host and DJ.

The station is run at such a high standard, and volunteering there I got to learn how to do so many things that are now part of my job.

"I knew nothing about radio when I first started volunteering at Vibe 107.6 FM but after 3 years I have left the station to work as a full time presenter for a national radio station! Volunteering at Vibe 107.6 FM has taught me so many skills and has really enhanced my presenting skills plus I've met lots of great people along the way. It's a fab station and is really well known amongst other commercial stations which is a huge bonus!
