a radio space for all

Sound Vault was a community podcast network created by a team of volunteers on the Surrey/Hampshire border, in the UK – in partnership with the Farnham Maltings.

Although the project has now come to an end, on this ‘legacy’ website, you will find a record of the project, including links to copies of all the podcasts produced between 2017-18, captured for posterity on Mixcloud – just click on the ‘Shows’ tab above to find the relevant podcast/show.

You will find a number of regular shows; some more occasional, grouped as follows:

Showcase: other ‘Music’ output

As well as the more regular output, we have also included here:

Discover Music with Plastic Dino – a two-part series of shows, hosted by Kitty Sholl, billed as being “a dinosaur enthusiast on an adventue, to seek out new, old and unique tune to brighten your day.” (presented and produced by Kitty Sholl).

Breaking Lines – a one-off, genre-busting music mixtape (produced by Darren Mooney);

Let Me Take You There – a three-part series, where guests pick a selection of tracks based on the fact that they take them to a physical place, or an emotional state of mind – and explain why (produced by Darren Mooney and Paul Simpson).

Sound Vault: Music contains just one show.  It had intended to be a catch-all for any one-off music shows we did.  The one we did do was a collection of music choices and vox-pops from freshers students during their first week at university (UCA Farnham) in October 2017 (produced by Hannah Hargreave and Paul Simpson).
