History of 2BOB Radio

enadmin, 12th April 2013

Presenter Carol Lucas has documented the history of the Taree station as a four part radio documentary.

2BOB started life when a large group of individuals from different walks of life met at the Wingham Town Hall in December 1982 to plan the acquisition of a Public Broadcasting Licence for the Manning Valley.

Since then, thousands of people from the local community have participated in the 2BOB in one way or another; as presenters, technicians or guests. Programs are broad-ranging, covering every music style, current affairs, education, women's and men's issues, environmental matters, health, poetry, literature, comedy and drama. 2BOB produces its own local news service, schools program and other special interest programs.

Presenter Carol Lucas has documented the history of the station as a special four part archive broadcast. Further information is available from the 2BOB facebook page.

Recognising the historical partnership between the community broadcasting and higher education sectors, this paper reviews the pioneer educational program Talking to New England as collaboration between the University of New England and 2SER. It also documents the contributions to learning and teaching at Charles Sturt University (CSU) over three decades by 2MCE and evaluates the potential contributions of the station to the development of new teaching resources such as educational podcasting. This paper also outlines a pilot project at CSU established to investigate whether the “explaining voice” as a style of vocal presentation closely aligned to radio broadcasting traditions, could be adopted for university audio learning.
