Blueskin Bay FM 88.2 launches

by Peter Dowden

Blueskin Bay FM 88.2 held its official launch on Saturday 1 May. The
radio station was welcomed to Warrington School by Mark Familton from the Board
of Trustees.

Andrew Noone and Alasdair Morrison from DCC/Waikouaiti Coast Community
Board declared the station open and cut the ribbon. Hinerangi
Ferral-Heath from Kati Huirapa Runaka ki Puketeraki told the legend of
sound waves being bestowed by the birds, the greatest of which in our
area is the Toroa or albatross.

Representatives of other community radio stations Oamaru Heritage
Radio, Puketapu Radio and Toroa Radio gave their support.

Steven Rainbow, of Warrington, won the best logo competition.
