Attadale Rotary Club members had a lot of fun at the meeting on Monday 18th September. President Colin McCulloch welcomed Guests including the Speakers for the evening from the Newsroom at Curtin Radio 100.1FM, Louis Zambotto and News Cadets Courtney Thornton and Lennon Matthew-Rowell.
Louis told us about his journey from being a country boy at Manjimup to studying Journalism at Curtin University and meeting up with Les Welch from the News Dept at the radio station. Les has been training Journalism students from the University who have an interest in radio for many years. Courtney and Lennon also shared why they love the Community Radio station as much as they do and touched on how the station survives through its advertisers and the yearly Radiothon.
The music they play is loved by all ages but particularly by the 'Baby Boomers' generation.
Rotarian Martin Houchin created a lot of fun with the raffle for the evening when he finally realised (after much laughter) that he had inadvertently folded the tickets that had NOT been sold therefore there were no prize winners present. Needless to say he had to pay the penalty of lots of jokes at his expense plus pay a fine to the Club Sergeant Patricia Robertson for his lack of professionalism. A great night with lots of laughter.
