Studio 2 has had 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.

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 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 being transferred to new display cabinets, for better viewing.

An entry sign showing examples of what can be seen inside,  greets visitors at our pathway entrance to the front door and foyer.

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.
