You can record a piece yourself simply using your smartphone and sending it to us either via social media or emailing it to studio@dalesradio.co  Smartphones come with a voice (memo) recorder - use this app to record your message.  Alternatively, simply record your message as a note in Facebook Messenger and send it to us.

Tips for making a good recording

Please just send over a recording on your phone and we’ll do the rest. Here’s some pointers:

  • Just write down some bullet points – it makes it easier to record and sound more natural.
  • If you make it in short sentences with the last one being your call to action – e.g. email us or go to the website, we will then tidy it up for you 
  • Choose a nice quiet room with little echo (near curtains is good!). 
  • Use voice recorder or voice memo on your phone, depending which phone you have, but any recorder will do. 
  • Relax and smile!
  • Just talk normally and you’ll create an honest and credible piece
  • Don’t worry if you leave gaps between each bit – we can tighten it up so it comes together well. 
  • Save it in the default format – whatever it is, we can convert it.   
  • Forward the file via email to studio@dalesradio.co

Our team will tidy it up and edit if necessary to make it sound great!
