Lynchford, May 1971. Something happened. Strange lights in the sky, flattened grass, a dead cat. Matt Warren investigates.
Radio station 7QT commenced broadcasting on the AM band in 1937 from the Paragon Theatre Queenstown as the 'Voice of the West Coast'. This two-part program, produced by Miyuki Jokiranta, celebrates the history of 7QT and the role of women in West Coast radio. It features interviews with long-time 7QT broadcaster Verna Wakefield, in conversation with colleagues Lorraine Powell and Wendy Powell, and former station manager Phillip Ebrall.
