Ash Bell and Shirley Comeskey at Print Disabled Radio, 1990

Ash Bell, studio manager, and Shirley Comeskey, senior operator, at work at Print Disabled Radio, Levin, 1990. Still operating in 2014 – as the Radio Reading Service – it was established as a private short-wave station run by volunteers. Broadcasting to New Zealand and the Pacific, it provided a reading service for people who, for whatever reason, were unable to read themselves. Note the innovative use of cardboard egg trays for acoustic dampening.
