In an interview last week on Melbourne community radio station 89.9 LightFM, Minister for Communications, Mitch Fifield, announced additional targeted funding for digital radio ($1.9m in 2017/18 and $2m in 2018/19) and a further $2.2m focused on support for stations affected by the reorganisation of the 803-960 MHz radio frequency band. While digital funding is essentially for major city stations at the moment, the extra funding keeps community radio in touch with the gradual roll out of Digial Radio which one day will reach rural and regional stations.

This years Wallan Walk-in got underway on Tuesday Morning with our Co-Coordinators Ariah and Madi hosting the 7am session. Mr Howley called in briefly, before heading off to Melbourne and another School project. and on Wednesday Lee co-hosted with the girls for his third year participating in the Wallan Walk-in project. The afternoon sessions from the School Library are proving to be a big success and next weeks sessions have had to be split into half hours for some timeslots. Being on air from a busy location at the School has allowed many more students to see and ehar what is going on. Thanks to the Principle Ms Lasslett, School Captains Kyle and Charlotte for their interview session and special thanks to the IT Tech Team for helping Ellie get some initial issues sorted out and Lisa the School Librarian whose desk we have taken over. This weeks sessions are Tuesday and Wednesday 7am-8am from the Wallan Studio and 4pm to 6pm from the School Library on both days.

Deep and Tina from Wallan U3A joined co‐host Paul, President of Kilmore and District U3A, as guests for our regular U3A session last Monday. Wallan U3A is relatively new, but growing fast. They offer several courses not offered by Kilmore and members of one group can become associate members of the other to access a wider variety of courses. It is likely that members of Wallan U3A will now be included in the roster for guests for the third Monday of the month sessions

On very rare occasions, none of our three Techs, Lewy, Ellie and Connor are available for an OB or local Footy broadcast and Saturday was one such day. Fortunately, we have been able to contact JMC Academy when this happens and ask for their help. JMC in Victoria is based in South Melbourne and offers Degree and Diploma courses in such things as ‐ Animation, Audio Engineering, Sound Production, Contemporary Music and more. Both Lewy and Ellie are graduates of JMC. Our thanks to Rob Care ‐ Head of Audio Engineering and Sound Production at JMC and to David Aird who was our Tech for the day and coincidentally only lives walking distance from our Studio

Roger and the other six Positive Ageing Ambassadors for Mitchell Shire has their first training sessions last week and got to know eachother better. They certainly have a challenging job and it will be very interesting to see what projects evolve once they get started. OKR has offered to provide any assistance we can for the ambassadors.

Kilmore Historical Society had a very pleasing response for their Wallan Cemetery Tour on Saturday Afternoon. The Society had done a great deal of research and were able to provide very interesting stories for the graves they had chosen to highlight. We have recordings with Francis, President of the KHS done after the tour, which should be available for listeners during the week.
