An announcer has yet to be found to take over an Oamaru Heritage Radio show formerly hosted by Temuka man Trevor Norton.
Oamaru Heritage Radio Trust chairman Charlie Fraser said Mr Norton broadcast his last show several weeks ago.
“No-one has offered to do his show and there are quite a few time slots we need filled.”
The show has been broadcast between 4pm and 10pm on Tuesdays since 2004.
Mr Fraser said another of the radio station’s presenters was no longer available because of health issues.
When telling The Courier he was giving up the show, Mr Norton also offered his vast collection of music and recordings to anyone who was interested.
Mr Norton’s wife, Elizabeth, said apart from some jazz records that were going to a grandson, the collection would be given to Mr Fraser’s daughter in Invercargill, who was setting up an entertainment and music museum.
They were waiting to hear from Mr Fraser as to when the collection would be taken south, Mrs Norton said.
