It is with heavy hearts that we farewell our much-loved Paul Duncan. Sadly, Paul passed away on Sunday 24 April as a result of Motor Neuron Disease. Music, radio, tennis, cricket, and the football were Paul’s passions. 

Paul became interested in community radio in the late 1980s when a friend asked him to help out on his program at Radio Port Phillip, 3RPP 98.7FM. When that friend decided to retire, Paul took over hosting the folk music show, “That’s All, Folks!” on Wednesday drive time, and the “Good Sports” Saturday morning brekky program. 

In 2004, Paul completed a broadcasting course at the Melbourne Radio School in St Kilda Road. 

After moving to Mansfield, he noticed that the town had a radio station, and in 2005 he decided to join. His program on Thursday afternoons, Anything Goes, has been on air ever since, and every winter he joined the commentary team doing the live broadcasts of the Eagles’ home games. Paul was always up for an OB as he really enjoyed meeting our audience. 

In 2011 Paul completed Certificate II in Creative Industries (Media & Broadcasting) and making contributions to several voice overs and promos for the station. 

Asked why he liked doing radio? “Because I love chatting, music, interviewing guests, giving away birthday cakes, restaurant vouchers, and basically, I enjoy it! “ 

Paul was the longest serving member of The Ants Bush Band, formed in the 70s. He played percussion and sang. He was also involved from time to time in various MMuDS’ productions and the MAD orchestra. He was a very dedicated member of the Mansfield Cricket Club, often providing reports for The Courier. 

Rest in Peace Paul Duncan. 8.7.1954 – 24.4.2022

The Radio Mansfield Committee of Management are excited to confirm that we have made progress on our journey to being able to receive tax deductible donations.  We have successfully registered as a charity with Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission and we now need to register with the Australian Taxation Office for Deductible Gift Recipient status so we can receive donations that our donors can claim as a tax deduction.

Before we can apply to the ATO we need to register with the Register of Cultural Organisations (ROCO).  Registration with ROCO requires that we update our constitution with some clauses about how we manage the bank account that will receive donations.   Before we hold a Special General Meeting we are required to notify you of the meeting date.  The meeting will ask members to vote to accept the updated constitution so that we can finalise our application to ROCO.

A copy of the Constitution with proposed changes is available for viewing at the station.

Contact me on secretary@radiomansfield.org.au if you would like me to send you a proxy voting form to nominate someone to vote on your behalf if you can't be there.

The meeting will be held at the Radio Mansfield studio, 10 Bank Place, Mansfield on Wednesday April 6th, 2022 at 5.45 p.m.

Please register apologies via return email and signed proxy voting forms should be received at the studio prior to the meeting either by post or through hand delivery to our studio mail slot.

Radio Mansfield has just finished the installation of a new transmission tower and repeater at Frenchman’s Gap near Woods Point. It commenced operation on Sunday 29th November 2020. Now Woods Point and the surrounding areas will be able to receive Radio Mansfield’s signal on 90.1FM. This project was financed by the Community Broadcasting Foundation with additional funds from VicForests. Woods Point is the most remote community in the Mansfield Shire and has the highest level of bushfire risk.

This project is an important part of the stations infrastructure and is particularly important in our role as emergency broadcasters. It will be great to be able to share our programs and information with the communities in the Woods Point area.
In November 2018 the station also commissioned a new transmitter in the Tolmie area which transmits on 88.7FM.

This means that Radio Mansfield is now able to broadcast to both the northern and southern parts of our Shire.

Radio Mansfield 99.7FM were finalists in the Southern Community Media Associations X Awards. Entries were submitted in a variety of categories and two entries made the finals:

Best Music Show – The ‘Vicki & John show’

Best in house production of a Community Service Announcement – The promotion for MMUDS ‘Blackadder production’.

Blackadder won this category. Congratulations and thanks must go to Roger Nolan – writer & producer; Ian Mallyon – recording and editing and Colin Price and Sandy McKinnon who voiced this promotion. This is the second X Award the station has won.
