Wray Owen Funerals – Major sponsor of Triple U FM Community Radio Station 104.5 Central

For almost a decade Wray Owen has been sponsoring Triple U FM and is proudly associated with this unique form of communty radio broadcasting.
Set up in 1983 the station’s radio announcers work on a voluntary basis and bring valuable input through their many varied programs. The appeal to a huge cross section of listeners is just the tip of the iceberg and the station brings out many of the Shoalhaven’s personalities in the form of announcers or those being interviewed.
Community radio is way ahead of commercial radio stations simply by way of the enormous variety on offer. Many listeners feel like they are part of the station’s ongoing conversation and regard their community announcers as close friends.
Triple U FM offer a diverse variety of programs to cater for all listener tastes. Live broadcasts are presented by volunteers who are members of the association. Their news and weather content is sourced locally and from the CBAA Satellite National News. Programs are for the most part, produced locally by the Triple U FM community or by live broadcast out of Triple U-FM’s studios.
Triple U FM also broadcasts syndicated programming from sources such as the Community Radio Satellite Network (COMRADSAT), BBC World Service, Indigenous Radio Service (NIRS) and other services. They have a fundamental program policy of encouraging the production and presentation of programs produced in the Shoalhaven with content relevant for the wider Shoalhaven community and the many thousands of short and long term visitors to the Shoalhaven’s tourist destinations.


Lone Pine Anniversary: 100 years since Anzacs fought one of their bloodiest battles


THOSE gathered at the 100th anniversary of Lone Pine late yesterday heard how the pretty surrounds were an illusion. The spilling lavender bushes and blooming roses? The neat trimmings and a chance to admire the gorgeous sea views? These are what Lone Pine has become. They get in the way of imagining the stinking boneyard that Lone Pine once was.

Remembering them … Centenary of the August 1915 at Lone Pine. Doug Baird father of Cameron Baird VC, follows in his late son’s footsteps by visiting the headstone of Trooper Harold Rush. Picture: David Caird. Source: News Corp Australia
