These areas were mostly known as “The House of…..”.

    The House Of Switzerland – situated at London Bridge – was the only international community in London have it’s own DAB pop up radio station! In fact, other than the BBC’s Olympic Sports Extra – the ‘International Radio Festival’ was the only DAB pop up license granted in London for the duration of the Olympics.

    Broadcasting from an old Swiss postal bus, we had a handful of regular presenters from across the world, including England, France, Switzerland and Germany. Then each day we would welcome 2 guest shows one from Switzerland, and one from the UK.

    My role during the 3 weeks, was to technically operate the studio and ensure that all equipment was working correctly, to produce a fantastic product for the listener. This involved ‘micing up’ live guests, and bands – and occasionally helping to produce shows.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″]
