[creative-radio] Fraser Coast, Australia: Support floods community radio station after fire


THE smoky stench assaulted the senses of disc jockeys and production
editors as they worked through the charred debris at the Hunter Street
home of Fraser Coast Community Radio.

Flame-stained computers and smoke-sprinkled CDs relayed a fiery tale from
10 nights ago.

An adjoining asbestos-ridden warehouse had gone up in flames in the dead
of night, leaving 107.5FM homeless and off the air.

Station volunteers surveyed the damage yesterday, among them president
Victor Jones.

"It's a sad way of finding out we were accepted in the community," said Mr
Jones, who has been with the radio station for almost all of its 16 years.

"What a mess," he recalled his first impressions after he was allowed to
re-enter the station's home of the last four years.

"The smoke and water damage was fairly horrific."
