“Innovation has been a key part of our operation,” claims station director James Meharry. “With the changing landscape in Christchurch and the difficulties we have all faced in the last 18 months, we have worked from laptops in the hills, programme directors bedrooms and even now, from the back of a horse float to ensure RDU98.5FM continues to break through the blur of commercial radio. We will stop at nothing to continue broadcasting.”
