Why and how did Studio 4 Holland get created.
Well It all started when I was about 10 years of age I guess.
My Father encouraged me to have a go at building a matchbox size radio.
Then a few years later we built a set of speakers together, which turned out to be rather excellent.
I ended up making some for friends.

Holland. In this period I was lucking enough to have a meeting with Yello. A truly awesome
experience. Read the story further under the connections tab.
