A student project by Callum Bain, the brief was set to design a television advert for a new digital radio station. He picked a gabba radio station.

To play the record the handle needs to be turned in a clockwise direction at a
steady 331/3 rpm. The paper cone then acts as a pick up and amplifies the sound
enough to make it audible.
This map plots the location of FM commercial and pirate radio stations within London.The poster
works in its own right as a piece of information design, but when connected to the modified radio
it becomes part of the interface. Each map is made site specific by connecting only the stations that
can be received in that location. This is done by drawing power lines in pencil on the back of the map,
which conducts electricity from the radio to the front of the poster.Placing a metal contact onto each
point enables us to listen to the sound broadcast live from that location.
What is it?
The book radio is designed to be a simple and ubiquitous incarnation of a digital radio in the form of a regular looking sketch book. It allows the user to experience radio in a new way by being able to scan radio channels just like flipping the pages, book mark radio stations and also annotate favorite programs by actually writing on to the relevant pages.
