Well, It’s been a tough old time at Groove over the last 6 weeks. You may have noticed some elements like the News and Weather and some programs missing at times and a lack of new music. I’ve been in hospital for 2 ½ weeks followed by several weeks recuperating at home after exploding my large intestine!
Now kids, if ever there was a reason to eat your fruit & veges when mum tells you to this is it! We’re talking life threatening. Agony. I’m told it is worse than childbirth. Anyway, with complications (the fact that I’m already on dialysis for kidney failure, like Jonah Lomu - leading to a 2nd operation under general anaesthetic within 3 days) I’ve been hopelessly out of action and Groove has been just going through the motions. (Thank you to Tim and the rest of the team for soldiering on).
Everything should be back to normal over the next week or so but it means the station is now in a more precarious state than ever. If we don’t get a few good 6 month sponsors it’ll be the sound of silence and memories of when radio was worth listening to. Please contact us if you would like to find out more about advertising/sponsorship or you have ideas of organisations we should be calling. You can call me directly on 021-457368.
More immediately, as a listener, please scroll down the page and click on the ‘make a donation’ button below and help keep us on-air in the meantime.
Thank you to those who already have.
Catch you soon with more positive news and stay tuned!
