I have been a member of STA FM for many years and have also been on the management committee. To me, the Members and Presenters of STA FM are just like a big and welcoming family.
Locally born, educated, then married a local, so the chances are I won’t be leaving. My association with STA FM started shortly after it started operation by bringing the Girl Guides down for a visit, thus started my first program “Girl Guide Hour”. Since then I have taken on more programs, now doing a total of eight hours a week over four shows and loving it.
'Sentimental Journey' on Monday from 3 pm to 4 pm. This is a request show for the residents and staff at McLean nursing home in Inverell. Each week they fax a request list of older and sometimes newer songs that they would love to hear. A mixture of Golden Oldies and Country tunes make up the program.
'Girl Guide Hour' on Monday from 4 pm to 5 pm. During this program, I often touch base with either a Guide Leader or a Guide to Chat about what has been happening at the Inverell Girl Guides organisation and what is coming up. The Guides love to come into the studio and have a chat. There is also a few requests from Guides, parents and Leaders. The music on this program is mostly '90's and modern contemporary.
'Morning Magazine' on Tuesday mornings from 9 am to 12 pm. This program is quite busy especially the first hour. I like to play easy listening music from the '60's to more modern music, you won't hear much Country.
'Drivetime' on Friday from 3 pm to 6 pm. This program is full of favourites that will make your drive home more enjoyable after a long week at work, and I take requests. Music on this program is mostly 70's to 90's.
My time with STA FM has given me the confidence to do much more than I ever could have imagined.
