Queen goes Radio Ga-Ga

Live on the radio

Live on the radio

Three years ago when Neon Play launched, BBC Radio Gloucestershire presenter Chris Baxter came along to Neon Towers in our tiny office above a shop to see what was going on. Since then, things have changed a bit and we recently won the very prestigious Queen's Award for Innovation.

And our CEO Oli Christie was invited along to the BBC studio to give a live interview. Have a listen and check out some behind-the-scenes pictures below.

What a great reception!

Quite literally. This is their reception...

Through the looking glass

After a bit of a nervous wait in reception, Oli was ushered through to a holding area where you could look through the big glass window at the show producers and all their screens and gizmos.

Queen's daughter

Oli was there to talk about the Queen's Award, so it was a bit ironic (sort of) to see that her daughter Princess Anne had already been there.

Getting ready...

Here is Dom the producer having a chat with Chris Baxter before the interview starts. Probably trying to find some really tricky question to trip up Oli (not hard).

They think it's all over...

And here's a happy family snap of Chris and Oli once the interview was over. And relax...

In the papers

By the time Oli got back to Neon Towers, there was a lovely piece in the Gloucestershire Echo with a pic of the whole Neon Play gurning delightfully. Hoorah!
