WHAT’S BEEN HAPPENING
It was exciting for Radio Ferrymead staff to hear the news that our announcer, Dan and partner, Hayley, have had their baby girl. It was even more exciting for the happy couple. They have named her Sylvie, and she is doing very well. This is the first baby to a Radio Ferrymead announcer, so big congratulations to Hayley, Dan and little Sylvie.

Presently 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 at Ferrymead Heritage Park.
Radio Preservation Society Building
This building will become the new home of the Radio Preservation Society and Radio Ferrymead.
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 is a little closer to completion with the decaying telephone pole, crucial to the connection, having been replaced. Hopefully work can progress soon towards wiring Radio Ferrymead up for broadcasting from the new studios.
