Radio Ferrymead‘s Studio 2 is getting a revamp, with new turntables, players and microphones. The studio will soon be available for training our potential announcers who are unable to practice on a weekday but are now able to train during the weekend.
The Museum of Sound and Radio has its display cabinets all painted and in place and decade displays of vintage radios have been put in place. Other display areas are being worked on in readiness for the opening of The Museum of Sound and Radio before Christmas.
An entry sign showing the display areas of the building, will soon be positioned at our pathway entrance to the front door and foyer.
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.
Village Radio – Tauranga
This is our sister station, in Tauranga. It is situated in a similar heritage park like 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.
