Radioshed

As reported in The Sunday Times and the Daily Record, 15-year-old Ryan Dunlop has turned his dad's garden shed into a rather successful online radion station Hitz Radio. With the help of volunteers, he presents in the morning before school and in the afternoon after school for the drivetime crowd and is doing very well both financially and in terms of viewing figures. Thanks to Emma at Enterprise Nation for alerting me to this.

    This was a false story. He didn't have lots of listeners. See the article in the ayrshire post...
