The show this month is a  ”Shed Happens” Special - featuring many of  the  “Making Tracks” Shedders have made over the last year, plus two brand new ones.

Making tracks is based on Radio 4’s “Saturday Live’s”  Inheritance Tracks – Where they celebrate music that guests cherish and would like to bestow on future generations.

Our making Tracks is a piece of music that Shedders identify as coming from a time when they undertook a large, or difficult project.

The range of projects that Shedders tell their stories about is amazing – from building camper vans, stylish shipping containers for homeless people, building a house extensions, making guitars, playhouses, and  mine detectors, of breaking down in the desert in South Africa, trying to keep the 2012 Olympics Aquatics centre project on time,  and fitting out a shop under time pressures.
