FAREWELL ALLAN NEILSON
After many years as the RIBS broadcaster from Radio Rum Jungle based at Batchelor Institute, Allan Neilson broadcast his last show on the CAAMA 8kin-fm network on Friday the 15th November.
Allan had worked at Batchelor Institute as the radio co-ordinator for seven years and broadcast the RIBS show from there for most of that time.
He is very highly regarded by both staff and students and will be missed as much by them as he will be by CAAMA and our listeners.
We all wish him well for his future.
Good luck Allan.
Hayley, Warrie, Renee, Damien and Mathew worked hard at RIBS Radio training with Paul for two days at Apatula.
Maxwell, Juan, and Terrence had fun and learned how to be RIBS broadcasters with Paul and Noelene at Ltyentye Apurte last Thursday and Friday.
Paul and a dedicated group were involved in RIBS training at Ntaria last week.
We had a lot of fun and all learned from each other.
On the way back to Alice Springs I saw a beautiful rainbow.
Kenny is back in the saddle and enjoying broadcasting from his community after some time in hospital, and we are delighted to have him back.
Gary Mumu a member of the CAAMA RIBS family dropped in to visit us while visiting Alice Springs from his home at Imanpa.
Sam Bulla had a blast when he put his first one hour program out to his community this week. A lot of visitors came to the RIBS studio to support him and join in the fun. It was a great show, the first of many programs to come.
