SATURDAY Night Jukebox was a beauty this past week with over 70 requests on the night including calls from Brisbane and Sydney.

Ron Gibson was the host for the program that saw some great requests including tracks from Fats Domino, The Beatles, Johnny Cash and Johnny O’Keefe through to Kim Wilde, Boney M, Elvis Costello and The Offspring among many others.

There were so many requests Ron could not fit them all in within the four hours, so we apologise if your track missed out this time around.

The Lewy’s Pizza prize for the night went to Kellie Ward of Orange, so a gift certificate will on its way soon Kellie.

Jukebox is back between 6 and 10pm this Saturday with Tim Williams in the driver’s seat, so give him a call on 6331-0092, with your Jukebox request from the ’50s through to the ’80s. 

Extra, extra

THIS Friday there will be no “Cool Climate Living” program for this week only as we present two specials instead.

At 11am following the National News there will be a special “2MCE Extra” program being aired live along with a simulcast online, with a half hour presentation by CSU Journalism students of local news events from across the region.

These young students are our journalists of the future and this is a major presentation for them in expanding not just their writing and presentation skills but also editing and production techniques.

Following the “2MCE Extra” presentation we will also be talking about the upcoming local council elections from a rather different perspective.

Former long serving British councillor Martin King will be outlining how the English local government system varies from here in Australia. We also talk to Martin about what aspiring councillors can expect if elected this September.

Local government from a unique perspective and 2MCE Extra this Friday from 11 to noon on 2MCE. Cool Climate Living returns next Friday as usual.

2MCE is currently looking for people interested in presenting the Talking Newspaper program on weekdays between noon and 1pm.

We are particularly keen to hear from females who would like to try their hand at this valuable service that assists many of our elderly and sight impaired residents keep in touch with what’s happening across the region.

The service also targets those living in remote areas who find it difficult to get access to local newspapers.

All you need is a clear speaking voice and good reading skills, if you are interested, give us a call during business hours on 6338 4790.
