On Thursday night, the long-awaited recording of Roaches Coaches, Episode 1, finally got underway, in a farm steading just outside Balfon Station.

These will be very useful in future for recording things like chorus backing tracks for panto and other voice-overs.

Oh, and adding sound effects. Somebody get that man a comfy chair...
