In September some 20 independent radio stations from the Belgium French-language region of Wallonia opened up their studios to the public.
The initiative, “Studio sur Rue” (“Studio on the Street”) was launched by the Conseil Supérieur de l’Audiovisuel, Belgium’s audiovisual regulatory body for the Belgian French Community.
Stations were invited to participate, either by setting up an “open house” day, installing a live studio on the street or, like in the case of Liège-based 48FM, organizing a “radio-cruise” on the river Meuse.
For the occasion, 48FM, Liège University’s radio station, hired a river boat (“peniche Inside Out”) and installed a pop-up studio. From 12 p.m. to 8.p.m.
48FM presenters welcomed the public and hosted special programs. The night show featured concerts with bands and DJs and was broadcast live on 105 FM.
