The seemed to do everything in the wrong order, and appear to have lost the race. They gave the impression of having some kind of dream of moving from London to Cambridge and setting up a record shop with cafe and boozery, but didn't know the city at all. They had no premises lined up, no finance, and didn't realise that the city centre would be prohibitively expensive and getting an new alcohol licence on Mill Rd (the only other viable location) would be virtually impossible due to the Alcohol Control Order in place. I think that the person behind it quit their job and everything. May well be an unfortunate and cautionary tale.

I've done at least one for Cambridge 105, but not Cam FM. That's the student station, right?

There's a facebook event for it here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1606623256243286/
but it seems to have been set to "private" - I presume accidentally
