 Since 2013, i have been gradually building up the filming content side of the, Radio Variety Show.

The recordings are radio guests and gigs we attend and film the acts. The equipment, is a Canon Compact. Powershot, which has shocking audio ability. Many musicians have been shocked at the playback.  There will be more, with your help. More on that in the. Support the show, page
