All previous shows have been recorded remotely, with the team now looking for a studio in Leeds for artists and showrunners to use.

Their JustGiving page reads:

"Like a lot of recent projects, alto radio is the product of lockdown. Founded by friends Owen and Tom, we had thrown the idea around for some time but managed to have a serious think about how this could become a reality during the summer of 2020. We managed to set the station up using freeware, an old laptop and an inconsistent North Leeds broadband connection."

"We are a long way into achieving our goal already, as we have secured a space at Testbed."

"We have a space in the offices at the front of what will become a new, large-scale event space for Leeds. Our challenge is to turn said space into a sustainable, accessible, fully functioning studio. This means fitting out the room with all necessary equipment, furniture, fixings, branding, and a new station computer."
