Midwest Radio Imaging
We’ve also provided imaging packages for both the new Midwest Radio stations (formally Ivel FM & Vale FM). The package was a hybrid of custom cuts & resings from our Lakeland Radio package.
Insight Radio Christmas Overdubs
As mentioned in the last newsletter, we resang Steve’s ‘Lighten Up’ package for Insight Radio early last year, as part of the Connected ‘resing’ offer we have. Well, we also remixed some cuts from the package just before Christmas to give them a festive feel – check out the Insight Christmas overdubs demo by clicking here.

We’ve re-sung cuts for Big Jon at Hallam FM , BBC Radio Lancashire, as well as a complete package for Steamfair FM. You can hear all the resings (plus many others) on S2blue.com.
