It is that time of year again and we want to say a big thank you to all our friends, to everybody we have talked radio with and helped develop their broadcasting dreams.
We are looking forward to what the new year will bring, with broadcasting technology developing year by year, and of course we will be here to inform you of all the new goodies as and when they arrive.
Our office will be closing today and will re-open on the 2nd January. Feel free to email us should you have any inquiries, but please note that a response will come in the new year.
For now though, may we wish you all a very merry Christmas and a fantastic new year. We look forward to speaking to you in 2013.
All the best from Broadcast Warehouse
Kelvin Doe is an inspiring 15 year old boy from Sierra Leone. He started out rummaging through bins for old electronic components. He used his imagination and creativity to build batteries, transmitters and generators and has since created his own radio station.
Kelvin not only broadcasts his favourite music, but has regular contact with his listeners and likes to discuss the real issues that are affecting his community. He is known within the community as DJ Focus.
Kelvin has gone from strength to strength since meeting David Crowdrise, who runs a summer innovation camp in Sierra Leone. On the camp, Kelvin’s team built an FM radio station for the community. This impressed David so much that he asked Kelvin to join him for a few weeks at MIT. This was a good opportunity for Kelvin to expand his knowledge of the world and working environment.
Be inspired by Kelvin’s journey by watching his video.
If you need assistance in creating or updating your radio station then contact us at Broadcast Warehouse, where we will be happy to help you with your next inspiring project.
Of our goal to visit as many community radio stations around the UK, we have currently seen 22, of all varieties and managed by some really great people.
By visiting community stations, we are able to collect a lot of information, ideas and inspiration from the people involved in keeping community radio alive. Our wish is to learn from this information about best practices in the industry and also the not so great. With the use of a well produced report, we feel we could help many stations during the difficult economic times.
Tomorrow, we venture into central London to meet the capital’s community stations. It will be interesting to see how the city life affects the stations compared to the many we have visited in less urban surroundings.
Make sure you watch this space to hear how we get on. In the mean time, please do contact me should you have any questions regarding the tour.
As some of you will have already read, we are listening out for anybody who has a story about their (or somebody they know) work within the radio world.
So far we have heard from Ian Hickling, our friend from Transplan UK, with regards to his work commissioning the first Amphenol model 7860 mixed-polarity antenna into the UK for commercial use. So thank you for letting letting us know Ian, always good hear from you.
We would love to hear about your experiences too, wherever you are located and whatever the story. It would be great to write a blog for each person that has been doing something good with radio. It could be anything, maybe you have helped with a new radio station, a fundraising event, or have used radio to help people following a natural disaster. No matter how small or how big an impact you feel you have made (or somebody you know has made).
We will have an area on our blog dedicated to all the good around the world. Please do get in touch, we really want to hear from you.
