Testing Take Two


Change of venue last week for another test recording with some new equipment. many thanks to the Moulton British Legion for kindly allowing us to use their facilities.

Got to put some sound files together now to send off to both Northwich and Cheshire Radio and see if it meets their quality control guidelines!

Testing ... testing ...

After one test recording in the Outside Inn, we've been offered the use of part of the British Legion too, so we're set for another test recording there next month. The various village organisations have been great in offering to host us with out awkward requirements - somewhere quiet to record, somewhere to rehearse and somewhere for everybody else to congregate!

In the meantime we've acquired an extra microphone and a gadget to connect all the various inputs up to the recording deck. The first test recording has been analysed by Cheshire FM and deemed of sufficient quality. Given that it was a raw unedited recording, we ought to be able to produce something good enough for radio by the time we've tinkered with it!

We've also signed up some more cast members too. Stalwarts of the now-deceased Moulton Drama Group are lending us their talents, which should bring an extra degree of professionalism to the whole production.

Watch this space for more information. Or pop down the British Legion on a Wednesday evening from 7pm. We're usually there, in a corner of the bar somewhere!

Eastwich is waking up!

Welcome to the Cheshire village of Eastwich. We hope you'll enjoy hearing about the lives of the villagers who live in this lovely and totally fictitious mid-Cheshire village.

Episodes will hopefully be broadcast on new radio channel Cheshire FM in the first instance, followed by a dedicated YouTube channel where you can catch up with any episode you missed. We'll keep you up to date with everything that's happening on this blog.

While we wait to see if the licence for Cheshire FM is approved, you can get a sneaky glimpse of the villagers in their short biographies on the pages to the right ...
