Hello from the South Pacific

Hasn't 2011 gone past so fast? You'll be looking forward to a well earned break and we hope you'll enjoy time with friends and families in the coming days and weeks.

Thanks to support from people like yourself, we've managed to come through a very difficult year with many more features at, well supported competitions, and some long delayed plans we hope you'll see start coming to fruition early in 2012.

We also established a local emergency FM radio station after the killer Christchurch February 22 earthquake with help from broadcasters from throughout New Zealand. This was a serious strain on our finances and resources but made life better for many people.

Financially, it has been an immense struggle for us, and continues to be so. Our sincere thanks to those who have become annual supporters and helped us pay some of the bills. If you can find it possible to join us as a supporter right now, it would help us more than you can ever know. We accept VISA, Mastercard, AMEX and JCB.

I hope you'll always find something of interest whether you dip into the website regularly or infrequently: recently we've completed our 50+ series of Long Lost Australian Radio Stars, added more Armed Forces Radio Memories from India, found more features about local radio in New Zealand, and continued adding other new content to
