On Thursday 22 November, we were at the Swansea Grand Theatre to celebrate 40 years of BBC Radio Wales, with a very special evening of music and comedy hosted by Owen Money.
Acts included our friends Only Men Aloud, international star of the stage John Owen Jones (of Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera fame), the Morriston Orpheus Choir, singer-songwriter Hannah Grace, top tenor Wynne Evans, local legend Mal Pope, Swansea band Who’s Molly? and special guest Gabrielle.
Owen was joined by acclaimed Welsh comics Mike Bubbins and Sarah Breese and a guest appearance by our engineer Gareth Bale (sorry Jared Planas!) to keep the laughs rolling between musical sets.
It proved to be a very busy day for our 7 engineers who started at 7:30AM and finished at midnight! Thank you for your hard work guys!
We supplied our EAW 730 rig, EAW Microwedge 15’s as monitors, radio microphones for the acts and band microphones for the John Quirk orchestra. We also supplied four mixing consoles including our new AVID Profile and trusty Midas Pro series desks.
The whole show was recorded and will be broadcast on BBC Radio Wales, as part of their 40th Birthday celebrations at 6pm on the 30th of November.
