|Marilyn, I'm sorry you want to see my face so badly but can't. Photos of most of our presenters, myself included,are available in the top right hand corner of most of our online pages.
I'm not afraid of being seen, it's more a case of me being afraid of giving an incorrect weather or traffic report to my listeners. Because my eyes aren't quite what they used to be, they used to be my ankles, I need to have the screen where it is so I can see it properly in order to give the correct information.
I can print the weather reports, but the traffic is on the same screen and it changes sometimes by the minute, I need to have the screen nearby so I can read it.
Hopefully this will explain things for you.
Thanks for listening, I reckon I sound better than I look.
Hi Marilyn, It's funny as the banner on the web site, show's pictures

|Are you convinced that if a female on this little blue rock were to see your 'visage' would be screaming, for what & why?
Please let me know why 2 of you DJ guys are blocking the webcam from allowing me to see your visage.
Guys from NSW aren't so ugly, that I would scream sooo loud you folks would be able to hear me!!
What's the problem?
Maybe I can help you!
Perhaps they dont want anyone to find out they are on the air ..... ed

|Well Hello...... What great blue grass music i've been listening to. The Internet is fantastic and I was blown away when I found that the music was coming from Hawkesbury Radio, right here in Australia. Well Done and keep up the Great work. I'm a Favourite of yours now. Regards

Thank you Russell, our Bluegrass Program can stand up next to any in the world, and Mike Kear is like a 2 legged Wiki-pieda. Ed....

|"Music From Foggy Hollow" is the B-E-S-T bluegrass program I've ever heard!
Back in the 1970's, there was an FM radio station that used to play bluegrass, but their narrow-minded program director decided to cancel it.
Now, that FM radio station is on the ropes!
And Foggy Hollow's main mahn, Mike Kear is such a luv!
A while ago, my pc got nailed with a virus. I was fully willing & able to call him up (partly 'cos I wanted to hear his show 'live'.
Here's wishing him & his, and all the listeners of HR a beautiful Easter!
Marilyn, you're always welcome. You are a dear yourself. ED

|KUDOS to Hawkesbury Radio's Techo guys. Without them to run to the tower at 2am in the morning is a no mean feat.
The SES warned about possible flooding so radio had to be put back on air.
These fellows do all this work rain, hail or shine, to keep a fabulous community radio station on air in case of an emergency.
Admired by all appreciated by some. Good work boys, at 2am it's not what I would relish up a very dark mountain.
You have my vote! Ed

|I will be on leave from 26-01-2013 til 02-03-2013. A big thank you to all the listeners who regularly tune in every week and for all the phone calls and the emails. Believe me, it makes it all worth the effort to come in week after week. Unfortunately when we take leave or fall ill, Yvonne as program director has to try and find somebody to fill in for that show. As we all present our own shows differently, when we get asked to fill in from time to time we try and do our best to keep to the format of the usual presenter for that show which is not always possible. Please support whoever is in the chair filling in on Saturday nights as I am sure they will do their best to keep you entertained until I return on the 09-03-2013. Many thanks to you Greg for your kind comments posted on guestbook on the 15-01-2013.
Cheers, Jim (Solid Gold Saturday Night)

Just back from a few months in Canada and tuned in last night - where's Pop Rock's? Is it having a hiatus over the Christmas/New Year break?
Pop Rock's is having time off from fulltime radio, Pop will do fill ins when he can. Thanks Monique for caring.

|HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
HR is t-h-e finest radio station on this little-blue-rock!
ALL the DJ's, Announcers et al deserve a day off!
The only thing I ask in return is, can anybody send some of that warmth that you're experiencing presently, over to my general direction? Please?!
Perhaps I can find a way to bring you folks some of our ugly-white-stuff (but it may be water by the time it reaches you folks!)
HR rocks & bluegrasses too!!!
Here's hoping all-U-folks have a safe, happy & prosperous 2013!!!!!
Thank you Marilyn for your good wishes. You can have our heat anytime, but keep the snow.
|Name: Marilyn Dickie Location: Montreal, Canada|
|OMG - On two counts: -
1. We're still here too!
2. It's sooo good to get to listen to Mike Kear's & Music From Foggy Hollow!
(Let me explain - I emailed Mike after firing-up the pc, telling him that I believe the Mayan Calendar was built by the same screw-ups as Toyota. (Since their last major recall).
For quite a while, the audio card of my pc's been acting squirrely, so I emailed Mike & told him that I may have to miss-out on listening to his show, until my pc tech flys-by & replace the card.)
HR is THE GREATEST!
Marilyn, you can't not say a PC has thinking power, when it's important the dang thing thinks otherwise. Thank you for your wishes.

|Hi Brian Flowers and everyone,
Best wishes from Robb Moss/Hillcrest
As a newcomer to the Hillcrest family of recording artists, I wanted to take a moment to say hello and thank you for supporting our musical efforts. It is a great thrill to hear back from so many DJ’s that my song Fools Gold is being played in so many parts of the world and for this I am eternally grateful.
I wish for you and your family, friends and radio listeners a wonderful Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.
All the very best,
Bragg Creek, Alberta, Canada

I Paul Hutchinson am writing in regards to the Brian Edmonds interview of Kevin Conolly.
This interview where Mr Conolly has spoken has several flaws in it.
Firstly there have been other studies conducted in regards to the Riverstone Overpass Options.
These locations have been made available to the public.
The schematics of the designs show several Garfield rd options about two in fact.
Loftus st also has two designs along with King st.
Not to mention one also located in Princess st & also Park st Riverstone.
Also it is interesting to highlight that Mr Conolly mentions that some shops shall be removed,
Claiming to be a small number of shops at the Southern end.
Let's just say the schematics that I have in my possession will show that there is a much wider impact than this.
Not to mention that Mr Conolly states a new road would have to be built that would be raised to cross the flood plain.
The current situation in Garfield rd Overpass proposal does not mention any continuous raised section of Garfield rd
Allowing access into and out of the town during flooding.
This is a flawed argument as the Overpass proposal actually comes back to the current road level located near the
Riverstone football fields. No raised continued section of road allows any flood access.
Also the fact that the interviewer suggests that Riverstone cannot change he has no idea what he is talking about.
This interview is made to sound as though the entire Community is against progress.
Which is not the case, The wider Riverstone Community is for progress so long as it is done with consultation with the Community.
The Community is aware of the Northwest Growth Sector and the impacts that will be placed on the Community.
With the proposed Overpass moving through Riverstone this will only be traffic actually passing through the Community & not stopping.
With this traffic which is largely Industrial traffic in the form of heavy vehicles, it would be more prudent to have this traffic move
Through the Industrial corridor utilising another design.
Also what is not mentioned in the interview is that Granville still has a fully functioning level crossing.
Another option suggested by Brian that Riverstone cannot maintain the Country town image is just clearly an erroneous statement.
Windsor has retained the Historical elements of the town, in preserving historical buildings of significant heritage value whilst moving forward in a progressive fashion.
Currently Windsor is embroiled in turmoil in regards to the proposal of the removal of Thompson Square for the proposed new Overpass at Windsor.
I wonder what Mr Edmonds thinks of this removing the oldest historical town centre in Australia.
Again I would stress that as a member of the Community I am not against progress nor are allot of people in Riverstone.
However when other transport options are available these need to be examined in full also.
I look forward to receiving further correspondence from you.
