90 years on, and it’s a Whisby nightingale…

00:00 /

Janet Welsh

To celebrate the 90th anniversary of the first ever outside radio broadcast, Dylan Roys(Senior Lecturer in Radio and Sound) and David McSherry (Senior Lecturer in Audio Production) at the University of Lincoln’s School of Media, teamed up with local violinist Janet Welsh, Graham (one of Whisby Nature Park’s expert guides and wardens) and, of course, a Lincolnshire nightingale.


Dylan Roys introduced Siren FM’s Ed Wellman to the thoughts behind the project, how it went on the night and we heard the practices and the final result.

It really is a treat for the ears, and a remarkable achievement. You should click the button above to find out all about it.
