Two days of live broadcasting with BCVC

The May Bank Holiday in 2012 saw a first for the Hereford Hospital Radio team with a two-day broadcast from the Border Counties Vintage Club Show in Monmouth.

Thanks to the equipment donated by the 3 Store in Hereford’s High Town and purchased as part of our National Lottery Grant, we were finally able to leave the studio and go out and about.In the newly

painted outside broadcasting studio, nicknamed OB1, we set up for the weekend on Monmouth’s Vauxhall fields, the site of the old Monmouth Showground, as guests of BCVC to bring our listeners the sights and sounds of the show. From vintage tractors and trucks to army vehicles, there was plenty for us to talk about.

Our team of volunteers set up a stall to help raise money with a guess the weight of the chocolate egg competition, which was donated to the Children’s Ward by the lucky winner.

In a full schedule of events ,HHR were able to provide our listeners with a broadcast quality, just as good as from our normal studios at the County Hospital. with live interviews from the organisers of

the event as well as owners of the vehicles and stall holders, all passionate about why they were there.

Sunday breakfast show host, Richy Evans, even got up extra early to make the trip to Monmouth to present his show live from the event, and clearly enjoyed every minute of it.

We must thank all of the team for getting muddy and helping out.
