Chiltern Voice FM Coverage


Low Cost Commercial Production Service

All advert payments include one low-cost production session by the Chiltern Voice team.

What is included in this?

  • We will arrange for one of our presenters or professional voice over artists to record a voiceover from a script that you supply. This should be based on a maximum of 28 seconds when read at a sensible pace. You can supply your own voiceover but this must be recorded to a reasonably high standard with minimum background noise and in a good acoustic environment.
  • We will edit the voiceover to fit the 30 second slot, and may have to remove certain words if the duration exceeds the length of the commercial.
  • We will then add some appropriate music and sound effects to make the commercial more interesting to the listener.
  • We will edit and mix the commercial to a suitable standard for broadcast, and place it in the broadcast schedule according to the tariff that you have agreed.

What is not included?

  • We are a not able to enter into a process of approval by advertising clients which involves changing the voiceover, music or sound effects, or the editing and mixing of the commercial.
  • We are not able to allow clients to be involved in the scheduling of commercials in our programming, except where specific sponsorship arrangements have been agreed.

What do I do if I want to produce my own commercial?

  • We can use your existing audio package providing it is technically suitable for broadcast.
  • You can contact one of the following companies who offer fully professional commercial production facilities:

    Many others are available – just search “radio commercial production” on the internet.

What’s the cost?

It’s just £40 to have your commercial made by our in-house production team. Feel free to enquire with the other production companies, costs start from around £150.

Sponsorship deals & sponsor tags include production, so there are no production costs.
