Friday May 9th: Designs on You

Adam, Karen and Lisa tried and failed to bring you a surprise outside broadcast from a glamourous mystery location in London town. They're there trying to choose nice things to style and furnish Lawson Park with, so will be addressing burning issues such as
"Swags - too 2006, or worthy of reinvention?"
"The return of the coloured bathroom suite - should we start the trend?"

From China With Love

Backdoor bees

Farmyard Radio sadly failed to transmit from a distant yard this week - the beautiful farms of Nanlin, Gwandong province of southern China where director Adam is shepherding artists for the 'Happy Stacking' project.
The great Fire Wall of China got in the way Dorian suspects...

See the Happy Stacking project website to see what we're up to uncensored.

We'll be taking a break from the mike today as everyone's at a GA Board meeting and you wouldn't want us to broadcast that.
On the plus side the arrival of a new mixer and mikes means you'll notice a massive audio quality upswing next week though of course the content will remain just as bad.
A bientot!

Controversy, bring it on

Adam, Alistair and Lisa talk about the unseasonably cold weather, how the pick up lost its wheel and what it is like to hitch hike in the Lake District. Other hot topics will include the progress of the drilling crew and other building works. Delicate issues like why the A Foundation wont pay up and why the Chinese Embassy has declined Adam's visa application will be skirted round.

Adam has a hissy EMO fit at the beginning, so just run it forward a couple of minutes.....
