Mercia Sound Commercial Production Studio
Moved in the late 80's from its original position on the ground floor complex up to what used to be the bedrooms of the old working mens club caretakers flat at the top of the building.

The production studio is where I spent much of my time at Mercia, I was responsible for the commercials. The local commercials were mainly produced at BRMB in Birmingham and sent via landline to this studio, national commercials were received by satellite from SMS (Satellite Media Service) this was achieved by SMS remote controlling the Sony D.A.T. recorder (which can be seen sitting on top of the desk)
many national programmes were also sent via SMS and recorded in this studio onto reel to reel tape.
