taking music's past into the future


Studio News

Sunday morning from 10.30 until 12.30 you can phone in on  384 5678  for a request on our You Ask, We Play request programme.

Your request will be searched for in our vinyl record library and set up ready to be played between 12 noon and 2pm the following Sunday.

We enjoy playing your requests and bringing back those memories for you, so call in on Sunday.

It’s another long weekend  of music ahead of us  this coming weekend with Monday and Anzac Day Tuesday.

Radio Ferrymead will have live broadcasts on each of these days.

Our Community Noticeboard is a free service for your non-profit organisation. Check out our Welcome page for the link. 

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.

Radio Preservation Society Building

Still a work in progress as the builders start to line the walls of the area that will become our Museum of Sound and Radio. 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 will lift the old pole and replace it with the other, then hopefully work can progress towards wiring Radio Ferrymead up for broadcasting in its new studios.
