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.
