Curtin FM gem re­tires

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Street Watch -

RUBY Row­den has signed off af­ter vol­un­teer­ing with Curtin FM for 20 years.

The Cloverdale res­i­dent started work­ing in the of­fice at the sta­tion when she was 61 years old but now it con­cedes it is time to “an­noy her hus­band” at home.

“My favourite mem­o­ries in­clude work­ing with won­der­ful peo­ple; there has been so many in­cred­i­ble vol­un­teers and staff,” she said.

“There has al­ways been a great at­mos­phere; there has been so many work ex­pe­ri­ence stu­dents and dif­fer­ent peo­ple who have worked be­hind the scenes.

“The news ed­i­tor Les Welsh, who re­tired in De­cem­ber, has taught so many stu­dents and there is a wall of pho­tos of high-pro­file stu­dents, like An­gela Tsun, who have come through here.”

An af­ter­noon tea was held on Mrs Row­den’s last day on Fe­bru­ary 1.

Tun­ing out: Cloverdale res­i­dent Ruby Row­den says good­bye to Curtin FM af­ter vol­un­teer­ing for 20 years.
