We  operate from the Council’s Cranmer Building, with our Museum of Sound and Radio displays and studio broadcasting on 1413 Radio Ferrymead.

We are open to the public between 10am and 3pm Saturdays and Sundays. Come in and visit us.

 

Radio Preservation Society Building

This building will become the new home of the Radio Preservation Society and Radio Ferrymead.

With the framing and walls completed in the museum end, now plastering and painting will follow. Floor coverings after that.
Due to an ever decreasing funds for the new building project, we are splitting the museum area into two areas, Gallery and Display.
We will complete the Gallery area first, while the other half of the area can be used as storage.

The overhead connection from our new studios to our distant transmitter site has been delayed, due a decaying telephone pole. Permission for its replacement has been given at a recent meeting of  the Ferrymead Park Trust. A private company has put the end of the month as a date when they will lift the old pole and replace it with the other, then hopefully work can progress towards wiring Radio Ferrymead up for broadcasting from its new studios.
