CITY PARK RADIO MUSEUM
The radio museum has a lot of quality memorabilia on display in the front rooms of the City Park Cottage with items that date back to
the start of the last century.
There is a wonderful array of mantle and floor radios plus stereograms and portable transistor radios – there’s even a portable radio/television
With so much on offer, management has agreed for an overflow of items to be displayed in the office.
Along with the purchases, a small stereo system has been purchased for the museum main room to allow the replay of snippets and sound from the glory days of radio past.
As ever, the Radio Museum coordinators are looking for guides to take tours. If you have a few hours to spare on a regular basis, they would like to hear from you. Half a day is better
With these improvements, and the big crowds out and about in summer, management will also be suggesting the Museum opens on weekends (closing for two days midweek) during daylight
Please let us know if you can help out in any way in our great museum.

LOST A POST-IT NOTE?
This was found in one of our faulty studio CD players. To retrieve please contact Technical.
CD Players at City Park Radio
Sometimes you may hear we are having troubles with our CD players but sometimes it is not what our presenters lead you to believe.
Our technical volunteers do a wonderful keeping the discs spinning but the last thing we expected to see in the CD mechanism is a presenter’s sticky note like the
one we found recently. It prevented the machine from loading and playing.
P.S. Yes … much to the amusement of younger people, we still use CD Players and Turntables at City Park Radio
IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE
The library of podcasts available through the City Park Radio website continues to grow, with the recent addition of “Medical Mysteries”.
The first series of Dr Frank Madill’s popular radio show was aired late last year, with 12 episodes featuring someone famous from history and each with a mysterious medical condition or story.
The 2nd series is in production, but in the meantime, you can hear the first series again through the podcast page at our website.
