Last night TTWU did our first live radio gig at local community station AIR and what a great time we had doing it! We arrived at the studio to a warm welcome from Station Manager Carl Greenham (cups of tea all round). We then got set up in the hanger whilst the team were broadcasting next door, we had a sound check and tested our gear. All was good to go so we donned our headphones and got chatting with presenter David James. After a cheery natter about what we do, ukuleles and giant Jenga we proceeded to play three of our favourite songs which went down a treat.
We couldn’t help but notice what a wonderful set up this AIR radio is. It is an extension of Westfiled Arts College and plays a fantasic role in school with every class being scheduled for at least one session a week in the studio. They even provide trainning and qualifications to those who are keen and Carl tells us the education programme now outreaches to many schools within the local community with kids being sent in busloads! What an amazing opportunity. Also we love their passion for live music!

Thanks to all those that listened in to us last night and sent us lovely messages! If you missed out, we will be posting some of the recordings on here.
