I was commissioned to create the new website for Lincoln’s first community radio station, Siren FM. The brief was to build more modern, dynamic website that allows each show to have its own section – easily editable, with full support for podcasts, integration with Radioplayer… and responsive for mobile, tablets and desktop.
The site is based in WordPress, allowing for easy updating (including multimedia content) and multiple users. It requires minimal maintenance with pages such as the Shows page being automatically generated but still showing the presenters and shows in an interesting way.
The schedule is integrated with Google Calendar, connected to the site database so that each show has its own section, as well as custom image to be used throughout the site, with provisions for shows to add extra metadata such as custom menu links.
There’s also custom display for podcasts, which play through the Radioplayer console used for live listening.
