A new studio for the station
The project has been a long time in the planning, and was a “presenter-driven” initiative, the aim is to optimize the design of the Green Room, spice up the décor, and breathe new life into a once stagnant work area , making it a more user-friendly environment. The main framework and windows are now done with carpet and furniture to come.
Studio 2 Stage 2 begins
The renovation and redevelopment of Studio 2 into a second full broadcast studio has moved into stage 2. Watch as the development progresses ....
We are blessed with good luck to have Saturday Night Party Show presenter Allan Quinn and his father-in-law ( a Vladimir Putin lookalike) take on the task of demolishing and rebuilding Studio 2 ( Allan and Vlad are accomplished hands-on builders, and have offered their services for free, Thank you Allan, enjoyed your rendition of” Another brick in the wall”)
Working their own kind of magic, Gavin Casburn and Mark Courtney and Windsor electrician Daryl Brown, kept the Station on air, they managed their way through a labyrinthine maze of electrical cable and circuitry. More on this mad cap trio later. Thank you guys .
Communication is a key component of staying sane during a reno. If you have any question or concerns about the project, say something. Express your worries, you’ll get feedback.
Those of us who want access to the Music Library, should contact Yvonne . The Library is temporarily re-located in the office block.
To coin a phrase “ Hawkesbury Radio is on the eve of construction”

The drawback of any renovation is the fact that your working space will be under siege from tradesmen, electricians and carpenters and a few obligatory DIY intruders.
Tearing down partitions, being buried under debris and dust, navigating tools lying around and avoiding building material, strange people using our facilities…its all a bit intrusive.
If you can keep focussed, the inconvenience of renovating can be bearable. The work isn’t meant to personally interfere with your shows.
The project is scheduled for completion by March.
