When I was training as a journalist we were given a lecture by a freelancer. He tried to get across to us
the importance of wringing every last drop of potential out of an idea. I didn’t really grasp what they meant at the time, however I think you have shown me, by the way that you have persevered with developing Oldton.
Should your radio play air, maybe residents of Oldton will hear it and attempt to re-establish contact, although it is possible that the town may lie in an area of the British isles in which the underlying geology and overlying topography conspire to block radio signals.
An interesting nugget of trivia is that the FM frequency for BBC Radio One apparently buried the
radio station signal of a small (unnamed) town. I don’t want to rock the boat, but it would be ironic if
it was the louder voice of the BBC which had drowned out the public voice of Oldton. Perhaps you should keep quiet about this and be careful who you talk to. There may be some people still working within the corporation who are keen to keep the metaphorical concreting-over of Oldton a secret.
