Volunteer with us! 

Radio Eye is not currently accepting volunteer reader applications. 

If you would like to be notified when we resume, please email and we will let you know. 


What You Need to Know

Each year, 200 volunteers are needed to produce
about 4,000 hours of original programming!

You will need to complete a background check
when you come in to audition. This keeps us in
compliance with our contract with the Lexington
Public Library.
Auditions are required for all readers. The orientation and audition process will take approximately one hour.
​We ask you to come in once a week, but you're welcome to come in more! We're very flexible with your schedule. ​You will be at the studio from an hour to an hour and a half each time you volunteer, depending on what you read. Some programs are 30 minutes and some are an hour.


Volunteering in Lexington

Our Lexington studio is located in the back of the Northside Branch Library on Russell Cave Road. There are two parking lots. You will turn into the smaller, southern lot (the building says “RETURN” in big letters) and ring the bell to be let in.
We have opportunities for live readers, recorded readers, and general office help in Lexington.

Reading At Home

You can also volunteer as a reader from your own home! Remote readers record their programs anywhere they want (free of extraneous noise) and send their files to us through a file-sharing program, typically Dropbox. Download and read through these remote reading instructions if you’re interested in getting started.
Like our in-studio volunteers, remote readers must go through the audition process. If located in or near Lexington, many remote readers volunteer once or twice in-studio to get used to the reading format and recording software, which would also necessitate a background check.
