SPECIAL BIRTHDAY PROGRAMME
To mark the occasion of Print Radio Tasmania’s 35th birthday, on Monday, June the 26th, instead of hearing the usual repeats of the newspaper readings, we’ll be hearing a special programme, originally put together by Errol Miller. Errol was Print Radio Tasmania’s, (or 7rph as it was then), first “station Co-ordinator”, and a founding member of the committee established to investigate and establish a “Radio for the Print Handicapped”, (RPH) service in Hobart.
This 90 minute programme (the 7RPH story), was compiled to commemorate the occasion of the station’s first birthday. Hear original archived material which explains the importance of establishing such a service, how it was done, and what the station sounded like as it opened on June 26, 1982.
You’ll hear some familiar voices, and some which are sure to bring back memories.
Print Radio Tasmania provides an essential service to the 24 per cent of the population which for whatever reason is unable to read, manipulate or comprehend printed material. It also provides programming specifically for and about people with disabilities. Currently, over 90 volunteers research, compile, and present in excess of 60 hours per week of local, Tasmanian based, programming. Print Radio Tasmania was the first such station in Australia, and is now celebrating its 35th year providing this invaluable service to the Tasmanian community.
We thank all of the staff and volunteers who have been involved with Print Radio Tasmania since its inception, for their tireless efforts in support of Tasmanians with a print disability.
The 7RPH story can be heard at 7:00 PM Monday 26th June on 864AM in Southern Tasmania, 106.9FM in Launceston, and 96.1FM in Devonport. It will be streamed from our website at www.7rph.org.au, and through stream aggregating services, such as Tune-In Radio.
