5 Minute Interview with Dawn Jamison

How and why did you get involved with Irvine Beat FM? : I became a volunteer with Irvine Beat FM back in 2009 at that time I played a supporting roll but was very much in the background. People in radio will tell you how much of a buzz you get from being involved and I became increasingly involved until I finally was given the opportunity to present my first country show in 2010. Volunteering for any organisation is rewarding but for me volunteering with Irvine Beat FM has been an amazing and life changing experience so far.
