FOLLOWING the 2MCE annual general meeting this week, Margaret Hargans and Ron Gibson have been returned to the Charles Sturt University Broadcasting Board for a further two-year term as directors.

The pair was re-elected unopposed and join Tim Williams and Mark Ryan as 2MCE representatives on the 10-person panel, with other representatives coming from the university and community appointed members.

Margaret Hargans has been a regular on the board now for well over two decades while Ron Gibson is returning for his second term.

The board oversees the operations of 2MCE and the National Radio News Service operated by CSU and licensed through the Australian Media and Communications Authority.

Jukebox fun

A REAL mixture of requests came our way on this week’s Saturday Night Jukebox ranging from hard rockers Whitesnake from the eighties, 60’s pop band The Hollies, Aussie heartthrob in the late Jon English, ‘80s hair band Poison, Aussie songwriter, poet and storyteller Joe Dolce and Celtic punk rockers The Pogues among many others.

Jukebox is programmed by you the audience by simply phoning in with your request on 6331-0092 each Saturday night between 6pm and 10pm and our presenters will do their utmost in finding it for you. The only stipulation is the song must have charted in Australia between the fifties to 80’s in what was the Jukebox era.

So far this year we have received over two and a half thousand requests. You can join in the fun this Saturday by calling up Ron Gibson with your request from 6pm.

There is also a chance to win a delicious Lewy’s Pizza if you can answer a simple question, while around 8 o’clock there is the weekly Covers segment brought to you by Bathurst Batteries.
