The Board and members of Pirie Community Radio Broadcasters Inc are sad to announce the passing of our long time member Jan Stockdale last Saturday. Jan was a member for just short of 22 years, contributing to many programmes by herself and as a co-presenter. Her favourite and last programme was Golden Oldies which she took on when a previous presenter left, molding it in her own style. She was a friend to many listeners, bringing them joy on a Sunday morning. Thank you for the music Jan.
Graham Johnston – Secretary
