Aputula ….RIBS Coordinator/Trainer Visit

The last few days spent in Aputula was great … Jonathon McCormack is up and running a local program there, and I was able to meet with some of the service provider staff and talk about CAAMA & RIBS, what the possibilities are, and what our vision is for Aputula …I met up with Noelene Kenny, a past broadcaster, who is pretty busy these days, so is unable to do the shows, but is happy to support Jonathon & others doing something locally. Future visits are going to be closer together, starting up a Youth Program is in the pipeline & discussions are underway to get after-hours access to the studio for evening programs and weekend programs too … I am so looking Forward to my next visit to Aputula We did a local program 9:30 to 11:30 which was well received, and could be heard all around the community …shire workers, health clinic, people cars … it was great …so keep an ear out for 101.3FM at Aputula…Jonathon McCormack at the Panel …

and as a ps??? everyone was right, driving the Old Ghan Railway Heritage Track was a surreal experience, but dodging the spikes kept the concentration on the road too…fantastic country, fabulous views …several surprises!!!
