ROD DAVIS PENS SOME FI­NAL THOUGHTS ON THE DEMISE

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Ra­dio in Port dea­mal­ga­mated the cap­tive DSC. It let ev­ery com­mu­nity group, sports team and busi­ness pitch their mojo. Its was to pol­i­tics what a fry pan is to an egg.

I used to walk out of the var­i­ous stu­dios kack­ing my­self at what was just said on air. And some of what was said on ra­dio in Port Dou­glas never gets aired any­where.

So...as Joni sang...ya doe’know what ya got till it’s gone.

But I still feel like it’s a bit like pass­the-par­cel in a Belfast pub...some­one put the mu­sic back on, quick.

It’s my hope, hav­ing hung the first trans­mit­ter in PD, that some group...maybe a com­mu­nity group, keeps on broad­cast­ing the voice of the Dou­glas Shire.

Lo­cal ra­dio is barely vi­able, sure...it cost me hun­dreds of thou...but hey...it was worth ev­ery mad cent.

So my con­grats to the Zsar Zsar Gabours...you kept the pass-the-par­cel go­ing well beyond the det­o­na­tor’s due date.
