Robin Valk – Radio To Go

Talked about some of the articles on his blog:

Boat to Row: The hot topics are a tour, a single on vinyl and download, their own label, and a video shot for very little money. We’re weighing up what they should charge for the single launch gig on February 28th, with the vinyl thrown in. http://radiotogo.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/Boat-To-Row-Rock.html

The BBC in the midlands: I’m a big BBC fan. I see and hear inspiring stuff on the Beeb. More often than not, I give up in boredom, despair or disbelief watching and listening to anyone else. I use the BBC website every day. I respect Reithian principles. http://radiotogo.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/Desolation-Of-Smug-BBC-InMidlands.html

If you love art, film and music you’ll love this – for everyone interested in digital film, photography, graphic design, 360 degree film technology, art, music, dance, theatre, drama, script-writing, collaborative work and much more check out www.domeclub.co.uk

This is an exciting new medium that needs to be seen in person to get the full experience.

Dome Club has enjoyed a superb first season at The Custard Factory. All tickets sold out half way through the month and the happy customers and encouraging comments on our Facebook page – as well as a number of positive reviews elsewhere – bear witness to the appeal of the fulldome experience.

We’re putting on an extra event this Friday 31st January consisting of three special performances.

We’ve reduced tickets to only 30 per performance, so don’t delay.

The events have been going well and the Pink Floyd shows have been selling out each time so get your tickets early.
