Wednesday 15 April, 2015

Yesterday radioinfo announced the retirement of Capital Radio Network Group Content Director Don Dawkins.  

Don's career started in Bega in 1974 and finishes 40 years later in Canberra, and we thought we should catch up with him before he jumps in his kayak and heads off into the sunset. 

Tell us where you started, and where radio has taken you over the last 40 years.

A chapter in Canberra radio's history closes: Vale Jim PIlgrim

Thursday 09 April, 2015

Jim Pilgrim passed away this morning at 7.30am.

A unique chapter in Canberra’s radio history, for over 40 years. Jim was a radio host at 2CA through the early '70's and was the first Drive announcer on 2CC from it's launch in October 1975.

He was a regular news and sport presenter on Canberra television, and his distinctive booming voice made him one of Australia's iconic voice over talents. His contribution to the radio industry, will live on.

​Jim died peacefully in Brisbane this morning after a long illness
