1998..........Community Radio 2AIR

Another community radio licence was to be allocated in Coffs Harbour. I had no experience in running a Community Radio.

I was keen to see a Community Radio in Coffs Harbour that would only broadcast "Country Music" and "Pop Memories". My previous experience at 2TM Tamworth clearly showed that night time listeners were mainly older listeners. None of the Coffs Harbour Radio stations played that sort of music. Coffs Harbour did have a Christian Radio station broadcasting on a temporary licence. They were well setup and were quite professional. I felt that starting with nothing would be nearly impossible.
