MEDIA RELEASE

January 11th 2016
COMMUNITY radio station 5tcb celebrates 30 years on the airwaves.To celebrate the achievement, the station is calling for past volunteers and presenters to get in contact with the station to gather memorabilia to celebrate its three decades on air.
Station manager Sardia "Scad" Kakoschke said it was a "very exciting milestone"."A few years ago we were worried we weren't going to even make 25, but now that we've made it to 30 – it's fantastic."We want to celebrate not only what we have achieved in the last five to six year, but recognise all the achievements of previous volunteers and presenters made that helped us get here."The community station officially became a fully licensed station on March 17 in 1986.The station now has 35 volunteers who help volunteer their time on the airwaves and administration, production and finance. 5tcb broadcasts throughout the Limestone Coast including in Bordertown, Keith, Naracoorte and Padthaway.The station has won numerous awards over the 30 years, becoming one of the highest awarded community stations in Australia.5tcb will celebrate on air during the week of the milestone and host a dinner on March 19 at the Tatiara Civic Centre for the community, past and present volunteers. Miss Kakoschke said many former presenters moved on to careers in commercial radio, television and journalism. She said she hoped all past volunteers will reconnect with the station and so far the response has been fantastic. "We want to hear their stories about their time involved with the station, we want to get photos and memories and hear where they have gone now," she said. "We believe it will be a successful week and night – we've already had two presenters get in contact and come back on board through the process, which is awesome!"
