Loving Life FM studio upgrade on track

LOVING Life FM103.1's new Grafton studios are on track to be completed by June, thanks to a little help from some new friends.

Three licensed volunteers from the Mobile Mission Maintenance team answered the call for help and spent a week constructing the framework for the station's live-to-air studio.

The double-framed walls for the production and live-to-air studio were the clad with five layers of Gyprock cladding and acoustic insulation to eliminate any unwanted noise.

Loving Life FM 103.1 president Ken Tucker said the volunteers put in a lot of hard work to help with the project.

"Their mission is to serve those who serve, and they certainly were a great team who worked solid hours," he said.

"We are grateful to have the contribution of this professional team to bring us state-of-the-art sound studios."

The studios still require a set of double-glazed windows and two sets of solid core doors.

"Being on a main street at ground level, for the live-to-air studio it's important that no noise should interfere with the announcer or music," Mr Tucker said.

Mr Tucker said the station appreciated the donations of supplies from CSR and Premium Trusses for the construction of the studios.

Mr Tucker said while the project was a target a lot of work still needs to be completed before the opening of the improved Loving Life FM 103.1.

"There's still two full digital fitouts and some aerial work to do on the roof yet," he said.

"You can never pre-empt the timing when it comes to technology and just when it will work but I'm confident it will all go to plan."
