Noisy boilers wanted

Got a noisy boiler? A hissing heater? An strange sounding radiator? Then sample your offending receptacle and get it played out on Resonance FM

An unusual call for submissions has been made by Ascoms, a music producer, who is producing his second show for Patrick 'Murmer' McGinley's regular Resonance FM show 'Framework' to be broadcast some time in the Spring.

His previous show for Framework, 'It's Great to Reverberate', was an hour long excursion into the sonic properties of refrigerators, featuring sound contributions from all over the globe.

This time the focus will be on central heating systems. Interested individuals should record five to ten minuets [sic] of their central heating system, for example radiators, boilers, electric fires etc and send to Ascoms via email. For more information, contact Ascoms directly:
