Brad and I went to Colaw's back in December of 2007 and saw a wrecked AS trailer that had belonged to a radio station, and was kitted out very specifically for that purpose (a special build?).
Here are pics of the unit:
A recent thread on Stunning Streamlined Trailers
showed a Virgin Radio AS trailer that looked almost identical! It was at the 2007 V Festival in October in England.
I was confused--I thought the Colaw's trailer was a one-off, and it was clearly decaled with Oldies 95 station info, not Virgin. The Virgin trailer was in England two months before we saw the one at Colaw's, and the Colaw's trailer looked like it had been there for a while. I started looking more closely and saw there were a few differences, like the Colaw's trailer had an access door cut into the body above each hitch frame rail, the Colaw's trailer had a black hitch while the Virgin trailer's was grey, etc. The similarities were very close--same exterior lighting, same sign, same interior flooring and similar setup, etc. The Colaw's trailer had a door in the very back of the trailer, and I cannot tell if the Virgin trailer does.
Does anyone know who made/modified these trailers? I have not contacted Jackson Center about them yet, since I figured someone here would probably know. If no one does, I can contact JC, Virgin and Oldies 95 and see if I can get any info.
I am intrigued! Did someone build a fleet of radio station Airstreams? Are there any other radio stations around the US/world using AS trailers as mobile studios??? Inquiring minds want to know!
What fun on a slow day!
