The Studio

 

Our studio is a small room in the senior part of the school.

Previously we were housed in an office off a classroom.

Where we are now is great because all the people walking along the corridor can stop and look in at us.

That's pretty cool.

The Songs

 

We have been very lucky that a large number of the songs we play on MaranuiFM have been donated to use by other Radio Stations - "The Breeze" in Wellington and "Red Rocks Recording Studios"

 

The music that we play is middle of the road music - from the 1940s - 2000s
