CAAMA RIBS Broadcasters from Titjikala, Ltyentye Apurte and Ntaria attended a 2 day training on Interviewing recently. The training will enable the broadcasters to strengthen their local and national programs.
CAAMA Radio RIBS Co-ordinator Pam Reilly visited Titjikala RIBS Broadcaster Debra Claude to have a chat about her role.
Titjikala also known as Tapatjatjaka and formerly known as “Maryvale”, after the cattle station at the community. Titjakala is about 100 km by mainly unsealed road south-east from Alice Springs and is the main access road to the community.
Titjikala is situated in the Simpson Desert that occupies much of the southern part of the Northern Territory.
Denzel is a talented remote broadcaster from Wingellina (Irrunytju) 6km over the Western Australia border. He broadcasts from his community RIBS radio station in three local languages. Denzel was impressed with the CAAMA setup as he spent time in Studio1 with Mikaela during her Drivetime Show. He is in Mbantua (Alice Springs) for a two week holiday and is looking forward to more travel this year with a possible trip away to do some extended radio training. It was good to see you thanks for dropping in to CAAMA.
She is a multi award winning singer. She gave us My Island Home and now she is turning that home into an Island Christmas. Christine says that she celebrates Christmas surrounded by family! And her new album Island Christmas is a collaboration of family members across the twelve tracks.
It has the influences of the islands and even features Anu’s children! She has made countless appearances at Carols in the Domain and Carols by Candlelight over the years and this album just felt like the right fit.
To celebrate the festive season which is well and truly upon us, Justin Fenwick sat down with Christine to talk about what an island Christmas is really like and how she celebrates the festive season!
