As Chairman of the Hills Radio Board, I would like to take this opportunity to offer a big thank you to all who have participated in the success of Hills Radio.
It was only a few years ago when Chris Carpenter decided to build a community radio station for the Adelaide Hills as he recognised the gaping hole in the way that the hills communities could be brought together for the benefit of all.
Using his own money he slowly but surely purchased enough equipment and with the help of a few volunteers at first got the station up and running. The growth from then on has been phenomenal. The Hills Communities have embraced their station and the volunteer numbers have grown.
The thing that impresses me the most is the rate that the quality of the station and the performance of our volunteers and announcers has grown and improved. Today we are a station that we can all be proud of and I for one cannot see any better community radio station in Australia.
Congratulations to all and once again a big thankyou to all as we push onwards and upwards, keep up the good work and feel good about the service and your participation in growing a great Adelaide Hills community in which to live.
Chairman of the Hills Radio Board
