Three Great Men

Friday 18th December / presented by Cameron McAloon Chris Wheeldon

Every year at RTRFM we see over 400 volunteers come through the station to present shows, create content, help at events, help in the office and general make the station tick.

It is then incredibly sad when we lose any. This year we have seen three of our finest past and present presenters pass away.

On the final Artbeat of 2015 Cameron MacAloon and Chris Wheeldon pay tribute to three great men who have made not only RTRFM a great place but the world in general a better place to be.

Richard 'Dick' Hurn presented Saturday Jazz for 10 years and served 6 years on the board of directors of RTRFM. A man with a wonderful heart and a love for music and people.

Pete ' The Black Captain' Dunstan was involved in the station for 20 plus years as a presenter on Behind the Mirror, Brain, Blood Volume and Out To Lunch on Thursday. His love of the weirder side of music was a pleasure to listen to and his ability to talk music is unparalleled.

And finally, Maurice 'The Soul Man' Agale was a long time presenter of Bordak Bordak Ngalla, a larger then life man who loved the music of his people and fought for the rights of the first Australians.

Epitah of a Friend by Robert Burns

An honest man here lies at rest
As e'er God with his image blest;
The friend of man, the friend of truth,
The friend of age, and guide of youth:
Few hearts like his, with virtue warm'd,
Few heads with knowledge so informed:
If there's another world, he lives in bliss;
If there is none, he made the best of this.
