Southside radio station hit the airwaves for eight hours on Friday 1st July - and made a new world record.
The station, which serves James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough, took over Saltburn’s cliff lift to carry out the first interviews in history to be conducted in a water-powered funicular.
Residents, traders and visitors were invited to take part by talking to managing director and DJ at the station Alex Lewczuk while travelling in the famous carriages.

Alex, 50, who lives in Middlesbrough and is also a lecturer of media and journalism at the University of Lincoln, hailed the event on Friday as a huge success and thanked all those who offered help in organising and supporting the bid.
"We secured the record after just 10 minutes but decided to carry on non-stop for eight hours just to be sure we hold on to it for a while!" he said.
"As well as local people we also interviewed a number of people with connections to the area from as far away as Canada, Thailand, New Zealand and America.
We went up and down 114 times but the Victorians as engineers clearly knew their stuff as for most of the day it was a very smooth transition."
The cliff lift, which recently had a £30,000 refurbishment, is one of the oldest in the world, having opened in June 1884 to transport people from the beach to the cliff top above.
Councillor Sheelagh Clarke, cabinet member for culture, leisure, tourism and rural affairs, said it was "marvellous" that attention was focused on Saltburn, its lift and the community during the world record bid.
