Taunton Deane Audio news(TDAN)

TDAN has been providing this service for over 30 years. Normally, news is taken from the Somerset County Gazette and Wellington Weekly News, and is recorded, by one of five teams, on a Thursday or Friday evening for delivery on a Saturday or soon after, depending on the Royal Mail.

This USB stick can be played on a computer, or we will supply, free of charge, a suitable Orb Player on loan. The stick is sent to you in a reusable plastic wallet via Royal Mail, and it has a return FREEPOST label to send back the stick for re-recording and re-issue. No stamp is required.

If you are interested in receiving free weekly news via a memory stick, please ring us on 01823 283956 and if on the answerphone, give us your name and a contact telephone number so we can call you back.
