Studio 2 has had a revamp, with new turntables, players and microphones. The studio is available for training our potential announcers who are unable to practice on a weekday but are now able to train during the weekend.

Record Library

The vinyl record library is constantly being added to. An ongoing  system of records being vetted for quality or replacement is being handled by the busy library team. The Library Team do have surplus LP records for sale. Enquiries:

The Dini Collection

Visitors entering our new building, often enquire where the gramophones are. They remember the Dini Collection we cared for in our previous building. Bill Dini ran the Antigua Boat Sheds and over the years built up a world class collection of music boxes, organ players and gramophones. This collection is now housed in a separate building within a short walk across from the Radio Ferrymead studios, and open each day for you to take a look around.

The Museum of Sound and Radio

The domestic side of the museum is now open to visitors. It features a number of radiograms from different decades and displays of past radios and televisions. Our transistor collection is now displayed in new display cabinets, for better viewing.

An entry sign showing examples of what can be seen inside is next to the entry pathway. In the foyer visitors can see the announcer at work, through the viewing window. Give them a wave.

Sister Station

  •  Village Radio – Tauranga 

This is our sister station, in Tauranga. It is situated in  a similar heritage park to ourselves. It’s interesting just how many things the two stations have in common with music and listeners, even though they are run in slightly different ways.
