Member Success Officer - Darcy Denyer

The Member Success Officer's role is to provide proactive support and service to CBAA members, subscribers and prospective members. Darcy takes on this role with extensive experience in the not-for-profit sector, providing support and fundraising expertise to clients, which has allowed him to seemlessly join the CBAA membership team and provide high level advice to CBAA members.  

What drew you to community radio?

I guess having had a background in the not-for-profit sector for a long time I’ve always had an appreciation for community/public radio, in the way its community based support takes its listeners' actual interests into account. On the other hand, I have had a genuine interest in listening to certain community radio stations growing up, which was a great way to check out new music before it would blow up on mainstream radio. It’s also such a diverse world of its own that reaches beyond the scope of larger mainstream radio stations. 

What is something you have learnt about the sector since commencing your role at CBAA?

Probably the extent of the sector in its diversity of broadcasters and programming which is way beyond what I had originally thought - I now have zero doubt there’s something for everyone to enjoy, be it music, news, general interest pieces and culturally/linguistically specific broadcasters. It’s a changing world within radio too - probably more than I had thought - and being able to help stations transition some of their content to digital platforms both promotionally and content-wise is really exciting. 

You are offered a radio show - you can have any timeslot, play whatever music you like, discuss whatever you feel is of interest - what is happening today on the Darcy Denyer Variety Hour Radio Show?

Something between a film/pop culture & music type show with reviews and discussion that would also play what I believe to be my favourite tracks. I do enjoy a pretty broad range of music so I’d probably have to keep a theme for each show when it comes to the songs I’d put on. Honestly though these days it would be a lot of hip-hop in general, with some heavier throwbacks now and then!
