Abbey FM becomes a movie star

One of the UK's newest radio stations is to star on the big-screen as the setting for a new film.

Studios at Abbey FM in Barrow-in-Furness, which only launched last month, have been used for a short movie about a late-night radio DJ.

'Call Me' stars Shameless and Life on Mars actor Chris Wilcox as the main character. Filming took place this weekend and the makers hope it will be screened at festivals around the country, including the Edinburgh Festival. It's written by Bafta Scotland Award winner Adrian Mead, who also writes for the BBC's Waking The Dead.

Abbey FM station manager Andrew Turner said: “We had to rearrange some of the production side of the business, but it was fine. They used our second studio.

“It’s good for a new station to be doing something like this, and it’s nice to be asked.”
