The LRPR Guide to Radio Interviews

The Radio Interview how to really get your key points across effectively

Preparation, clarity, and concise communication

My number one is to Listen to the question asked and respond to the points raised.

Pay attention to the interviewer’s questions and feedback, and respond thoughtfully. Engage in a dialogue rather than delivering a monologue, and be prepared to adapt your key points based on the flow of the conversation.

Tone, pitch and energy…..Be Engaging: Radio is an auditory medium, so use your voice to convey enthusiasm and passion for your subject. Speak clearly and with energy to captivate listeners and hold their attention.

Know Your Key Points: Before the interview, identify the main messages you want to convey. These could be the key ideas, statistics, or stories you want the audience to remember. Personal experiences or case studies can help illustrate your message and make it more engaging

Prepare Talking Points: Develop talking points around your key messages. These should be brief, memorable phrases or sentences that encapsulate your main ideas.

Practice Concise Responses: Radio interviews often have limited time, so practice delivering your key points concisely. Aim to express each point clearly and succinctly, using simple language that listeners can easily understand.

Stay Focused + be Engaging: Be human the interview will not go 100% the way you have planned so you need to adapt. This comes through listening and sensing the tone of the conversation. If you feel it is going in a way you want to switch up, then do not ignore what you are asked but segway into where you want to go then to bring yourself back to your key talking points. If the interviewer asks unrelated questions, politely steer the conversation back to your main messages.

Stop using unnecessary words and watch your use and then repetition of words like:

Never ever say this- Basically (Nothing about what we do is basic so please eliminate this from your vocab)

I suppose

Am, am, am

Please at the top of the interview when you are greeted by the presenter for being on, just say Good morning, Claire, no need for thanks for having me on etc.

Provide Clear Takeaways.

 ‘I See You Like This’ 

September 26, 2023

Asking questions through art is a creative and different way of us seeing each other. Have you ever wondered how your child sees you? Well, the answer might lie within the ‘I See You Like This’ exhibition. With our ever-growing appetite to document our lives through photos and selfies, children are often the reluctant subjects of adults’ cameras – asked to smile, look natural and come in closer. In I See You Like This, Australian artist Jessica Wilson, flips the camera around giving the children control while their significant adults become their subjects.

Facilitated by Jessica in a private session the week before the festival begins, children will design and direct a creative photoshoot of their significant adult, captured by photographer Julia Dunin. The resulting portraits will create the exhibition. If you would like to be part of this exciting exhibition you can book an appointment for you and your 7 – 14 year old child with Jessica via In the appointment Jessica will ask the child questions about how they see their adult’s personality and then design and direct their own photoshoot using unusual objects to express how they see their adult.
