Ron McD Stuart - VK2ASJ

I started working in radio on my 15th birthday, and over the years I’ve also worked in TV and music recording studios here, in the UK, Spain & USA.

I’ve been pretty fortunate to have met and worked with some of the biggest ‘stars’ around, but the strongest memory I have of just about anyone I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting & working with was a man called Ron Stuart… who also went by the handle of VK2ASJ.

PODCAST: Love Your Pet Love Your Vet

When a member of your family is unwell – it’s not uncommon for the carer to feel overwhelmed by emotions when the doctor or nurse is talking about the health issue and explaining treatment options.

It happens in both human hospitals and even more frequently in veterinary hospitals where the cost of medical procedures doesn’t enjoy the same safety net that Medicare provides for human health care.

Now – there’s a new campaign to educate pet parents about what vets and vet nurses really have to endure on a daily basis which will hopefully help them think twice before criticising their pet’s care-providers.

Community Flights

For people living in Hervey Bay on QLD's Fraser Coast, it's a sort of 'mini paradise' - but despite dome excellent medical facilities, any specialist care usually means a trip to Brisbane, just over three and a half hours away by car.

But a very clever local pharmacist Mark McMurtrie - has come up with a great new service called Community Flights.

Sip Paint & Munch over Brunch!

Ever considered yourself an 'artist'?... Neither did we, until we went to a very relaxed late morning paint session in Hervey Bay QLD called 'Sip, Paint & Munch over Brunch'!

It's just one of many events created by local artist Michelle Valdivia, aka Shelly Seashells. Lots of fun and whether you've painted before or not, you might just be surprised at how talented we all are without ever knowing it!

Men of Arrows - Nadia Crighton

'Men of Arrows' is a fantasy/fiction book written by first-time author but longtime journalist Nadia Crighton.

Based on her own personal on-going drama in a relationship with 4 kids and uncertainties as to what lay ahead, Nadia describes how she rose from that dark part of her life and created an amazing book that we think should be made into a movie!

HypoDrive-5

On any given day of the week we often hear News reports that a road accident which caused serious injuries or even worse, deaths, was caused by a driver having a ‘medical incident’.

Transport Departments don’t keep official statistics – but it’s thought these ‘medical incidents’ number in the thousands annually which is why one woman who nearly died after being hit by someone feeling a ‘bit fuzzy’… is mounting a campaign to help drivers recognise when they’re a danger to others and how to keep themselves and the rest of us safe.

Paradise! - King Island

Is this the 'ULTIMATE' sea/tree change?

While many of us have already started the 'big journey' around Australia whether for 6 weeks, 6 months or 6 years & more... some people have already made the move to downsize not only as far as house sizes (& mortgages) are concerned but as a way of making a complete lifestyle change.
