I am totally satisfied with my internship. The radio is not commercial, "normal" radio. The program is made by many volunteers who then each produce their show. There are 5 people working as permanent staff responsible for things like finances, members, program coordination or technology.
It is really an ideal internship for me, because the people are very friendly and I am involved in many things. So I can get a lot of experience in different areas. I have been on air a few times and am a regular on some of the programs.
