  • From Tiny Acorns...



    ...a radio station will grow! At least thats the plan anyway, my radio show was broadcast for over 20 years via CRMK
    and we have just been given an old building by the local council - which they claim would be too expensive to knock down.
    So they have given us a 10 year lease for a £1 a year peppercorn rent. The only thing is we have to basically start from scratch.
    I have started a blog which will show the progress as it comes along so I hope you'll enjoy seeing the progress we make,
    there is no great rush but fingers x we can sort it by Easter of 2016, that's the plan anyway!

    I'll follow with interest. We have a similar deal with the council on some waste ground the wife took over as a garden, I had to put up a concrete garage for my music studio though (not on the rented land mind). Great acoustics Not! (but it gives me somewhere to hide and make some noise and record! it even has a couch albeit that I share it with the washing machine and tumble dryer)

    Looks like you'll be having a lot of fun!, Good Luck with it all.

    EDIT: And I hope you know some builders/roofers/plasterers etc who'll help you out.

          The very definition of a cottage industry.

          Is there any good graffiti remaining in the bogs?

            ha, not really but there was a really old bit of soap left on one of the basins. We will be after any DJ's too come broadcasting time so yes,
            if your interested there is spaces available. We do have some plasterers/plumbers/builders amongst our ranks, I am good at painting & decorating
            but the main work so far is clearing the ivy/weeds which have taken over worse than the War of The Worlds red weed!

              What an exciting project. Best of luck HG. Hope it turns into the marvellous oak you envisage. Out of interest, what was its previous use?

                    Radio Khazi?
                    Bog Station?
                    Armitage FM?

                      Blimey. I'd have thought that being under 70 miles from London, a detached property with garden and off street parking would be on the market for at least £250k...

                      Seriously though HG, that looks like a fantastic adventure to embark upon....all the best with it!

                              You should open the first show with Derek & Clive's "In the Lavs". On second thoughts, maybe not ... "Big Log" by Robert Plant? Something from "Flow Motion" by Can, perhaps?

                              How about a live session from the Brickhouse and Arsetricked Brass Band?
