Her programes are Country and Nostalgia and Fridays 9am-1pm and Sunday, 6pm-9pm,
Eversongs with a selection of Rock 'n' Roll, Nostalgia, Scottish, Irish and New Zealand artists, also Big Band, Blues and Skiffle in half hour slots. She also still fills in from time to time for absent members.
Once a month Eunice and Charlie head back up to Oamaru on Sunday for meetings and a catch up with friends and family. While up there
she teams up with Ralph Sherwood and they do a side by side program where they share their eclectic mix of music for you to enjoy from the OHR studio at no6 Itchen Street.

Trevor has frequented radio stations mot of his life. In the mid 60's he went for an interview with a view to work behind the mic, only to be told he had the wrong voice for the job.
An Access station in Rotorua would not broadcast notices for the Film Society, he was told to do it himself. So a weekly 2 hour program became a regular occurrence. This station morphed into "Classic Country", NZ's only full time country music station.
15 years ago Trevor moved to North Otago
and did 2 sessions a week at Puketapu Radio, then moved to Oamaru Heritage Radio to cover the "Heritage" aspect of the wireless.
His heritage material
is sourced from Australia, England, USA, Internet, Second Hand Shops and helpful listeners.
An incident a number of years ago left Trevor deaf so he cannot answer the telephone so if you want to contact him please use the OHR website or email him on firstname.lastname@example.org
