The Gallery - A little story about Red Dot Radio

Building a new Radio Station - Part 1

Before any real building took place we had to get lots and lots of stuff to build with.

There is quite a skill to getting things for free. We are sure if some of those involved in getting this stuff had turned to crime, their skills would be far better rewarded.

Time has moved on. The old radio station has been destroyed and the rebel forces are reunited.

The new radio station is now being built.

Follow the adventures of the team as they build the ninth wonder of the World using just wood and sticky-back plastic.

Caroline checks to make sure that her new phone can get coverage at the new studio. Or is she phoning for help?

The internal studio wall is up. Just a lick of paint and the job is done.

Malcolm checks the roof for leaks and if he can not find one he will soon make one!

Craig runs for cover as Malcolm finds the leak.

Craig drills another hole in the roof. But wait! What is this? It's in the wrong place....

...No problem, another hole won't make a difference.

The boys fit the new drains.

"Craig, could you help me get my thumbs off the floor now that you have screwed them down?"

Most kids go to the play-park for this kind of action.

Craig shows the correct procedure for using the new doorway.

Craig tests the special hardened drill bits. Test passed!

Not happy with testing drills, Craig also has a go at the circular saw. Kids! Do not try this at home, unless your name is also Craig and you are a complete numbty!

Did you know that if you laid all the records in the record library end-to-end they would reach London and back?

The boys fill in some of the gaps.

Chris and Tracey marvel at a record Jim has pointed out. The record was made before the turn of the century.

...only another 700 miles to go.

Jim and Chris get advice from Lewis on what the latest 'thing' is for the radio.

Jim and Chris make a few suggestions but Lewis is not sure.

Jim and Chris are physically sick at some of Lewis's suggestions.

Paul tries to remain anonymous but is looks like another failure for the witness protection program.

Craig shows off the new studio door or have they just forgot to fit the door handle?

Nope, there was a door handle and Craig shows of door-opening techniques (advanced).
