Weekend update, and it's sunny !

Hi Zoners, everything ok ?
Much as we do love our work (really !), the last thing we're doing this weekend is being stuck in a Studio.
Don't get me wrong, AZ towers is indeed a sensational place, but look, the sun is shining brightly today, so we're going to go out and about, visit a few friends, catch a few rays whilst going about our business.
Seems fair ? Good.
Onto the matters in hand, and we have almost completed the April Schedules, upfront. We will publish these next Wednesday, in time for the next set of AZ Shows, via Radio Seagull.

Weekend Update : 24 / 25 March 2007

All ok, Zone fraternity ?
It has been a quiet week - we're thankful for it !
Things spring into action this weekend though, particularly for Pod 1 (for the url simply see the index on the left of this page) as no less than 4 new shows will be on there, come Sunday evening.
Newies from Johnny Reece, Andy Miles, Gil Legine, and Richard Bismarck.
This coming week, it's maintenance time, not only on the main Studio PC, but on the Mixer, and, naturally, some oil for the ever vocal Studio chair. Truth be told, we like it like that, but maybe we should make the effort.
Schedules will be the name of the day, following the above, as we put into place the April 2007 Shows.
