Maddy Say’s: (Not necessarily too serious) I’ve been a member for over ten years now and I love being a part of the CMR family. I’ve learnt so much about broadcasting and have made some great friends too. CMR is the perfect place to get started in a radio career and I’d say to anyone considering joining do it, it’s well worth it.
