    I am looking forward to the Newie Show this year lots of great stuff happening I will come and say hello.
    Peter, Hamilton

    Congratulations Brent on your longer show through the week. Quite by chance I tuned in and heard you on air at 3 instead of 4. Another hour of what I love. Maybe a rocket to the station for not advertising your change of hours better!
    Frank, Cessnock

    Just heard your new Newcastle show advert. Me and my family will be there definitely.

    Thanks for once again broadcasting the Newcastle Jazz festival this year I was there for Friday and Saturday and caught the rest via your station on Sunday. Disappointing that you didn’t broadcast all the bands as you have other years, I guess its very expensive to do.

    I enjoyed your recent article “Whats in a name”. I am retired from radio after several decades and have heard rumors of these off band stations in Sydney. Now I own alot of radio’s but not one of them could tune any of these stations (I went through one day and tried out of curiosity). I think the point you missed was also that modern radio’s tune digitally, the days of the knob that you can “push to the end” are long gone. The average punter is now presented with a led screen that very very rarely reaches to any of these strange places. I like to think of off band stations as something like CB radio, its still there but no one has bought one of the special wirelesses in years. My favourite is the Brady Bunch Movie where Greg still drives to school in a station wagon with a CB radio and an 8 track (“try the CB Radio..but no one has answered us in 20 years!”). He would be your average off band listener, so someone is indeed listening but only a minute handful of trainspotter type people.

    I wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Summerland Kings and your broadcast from Nobbys last week. Its always good to see stations getting out and being part of our community, rather than just talking about it every five minutes. I’m also pleased to hear you’re running adverts for Hunter Dog rescue, I got my dog marmalade from them and they do a wonderful job.

You are the best of both worlds: not amateur hour like community Radio and not in your face like the commercial stations around here – just a nice balance that sounds like real people doing a good job.

    I have been reading for a while about all the Radio stations on the internet, but most of them are not very good. Even most of the local stations when they stream on the internet play just the same thing they do on the am/FM. Radio 16 is the first station I have come upon that is professionally run with some very good shows.

    I just recently found Radio 16 through Radio Brisbane up here. There’s not much I enjoy on Radio anymore, but after tuning in for national Mornings and National Drive I have found a station I can listen to again. Keep up the good work.

    Really enjoying your podcasts guys.

    Great to see at least one Radio Station in Newcastle caring about Anzac Day.

    Thank you Radio 16 for bringing back all the golden oldies.
    Iris.

    My family and I very much enjoy Radio16. I haven’t listened to the radio in years, but after my grand daughter setup our Internet and put you on I listen every day.
    Geoffrey, Broadmeadow

    Radio16 has some great shows on.

    Very sad news the passing of Chrissie Amphlett from the Divinyls, the days of her bouncing around in a school uniform belting out songs about things “good girls” dont talk about will be sadly missed! I think the lasting legacy of the band will probably be the track “Elsie” which is still just as hauntingly beautiful every time I hear it. The funniest interview I ever saw Chrissie do was when she was invited onto a panel for one of those horrible mid-morning womens TV shows to try and give the show some edge. Watching these blonded “personalities” and Chrissie try to find some type of common ground on womens issues was a true classic.
    Sean

    Hi Pete, Love the “Smokey & The Bandit” song (East Bound & Down) that you played Tuesday. Brings back childhood memories.
    Thank You, Rob

    Your website is very easy to use and very bright and clear to listen to. Good job Radio 16.
    Alan, Cronulla

    Hi Peter, could you play Doris Day again in the morning. My friends and I really like the new versions.

    I have loved Blazing Saddles for decades, I now know that was Count Basie in the desert! There was an orchestra in High Anxiety in the bus beside them, Im wondering if that was anyone famous as well?
    Sean

    Sounding good as usual Kim,
    Leon

    Listening from Cessnock, were not all in to Country and Western up here. Cool sounds.
    Rod

    Hi Radio 16. Love your new line-up, a lot of great presenters and shows.

    We listen to your Jazz from Germany.
    Siegal

    On behalf of Peter, Sean, Myself and all the crew at Radio 16 a very big “Thank You” to all the lovely people who have posted letters to our web page.

    Its nice to know that you enjoy our program mix.
    Kim Cathro

    I wanted to write and let you know what a great job you are doing. I got one of your flyers at the Newcastle show and have been listening
    ever since.
    Cheryl

    Loved the Japanese Cowboy this morning Peter.

    I have been listening to the Gary Jackson shows on Radio 16. When I was in the U.K many years ago Gary had a show on the Hospital Radio Network which was also very good and I’m sure you did a good thing by getting his programs on out here, did he ever work with Brian? Love your station and the great range of programs you have. I think on-line Internet radio is the way to go. When is Brian Blacklock’s show going to air?
    Mike from Hamilton

    Great Station!

    I wanted to write and say how much I enjoy your radio station. I do not like the other Radio stations in Newcastle at all, they just sound like noise to me. You have the best blend of tunes and best for me I know them all. I have been showing my friends how to listen in on their Computers. Please keep up the good work.
    Gladys, Cooks Hill

    Peter welcome to Radio16. I listen to you every morning now.
    Marie

    Gotta say I love Jazz Cafe & Kim’s Jazz Club Plus Koop Coopers Cocktail Nation. It’s the best jazz anywhere on Australian Radio and Kim knows more about jazz than anyone.
    Rob ( I’m 32 and swinging)

    It’s nice to have the Breakfast Club back on Radio16 it makes breakfast bright and cheerful. Not like some other stations who USED to sound good. Well done Radio16 my new favorite station. Also love all the Jazz shows.
    Alice

    Just found you guys on the web, kim I love what youre playing today.

    hey guys,
    I love that show Cocktail Nation. What a fantastic lineup of music and interviews. Keep up the good work Mr Kooper
    Wayne

    another wonderful Cocktail Nation! Bravo Kooper
    Jackie

    Hello Koop Kooper, Greetings from Brisbane! How much do I love the Cocktail Nation radio show! Awesome. I listen to your station all the time and just love listening to the Cocktail Nation on a saturday night. Could you play some Frank Sinatra for me on the show next week. That would be great!
    Regards
    George

    Hello radio 16 people, I just wanted to write to say how much I love the Cocktail Nation radio show. I look forward to every episode. Its so refreshing to hear great lounge music on the radio. What a marvelous radio show. Could you tell me how to get in touch with Mr Kooper. I would love to send him an email. I happened to see him hosting a Carols By Candlelight event in Sydney but couldn’t get close enough to say hello to him because of the security. I also saw him in the society pages of the Daily Telegraph recently. What a star. Thanks for bringing the show to Newcastle
    Rodger

    I very much enjoyed your live broadcast from the Newcastle Show this year, shame it wasn’t a bit better weather for you all.

    you sound great Kim
    Leon

    Please play more Elvis

    This is my favourite radio station. I think coop cooper has a very sexy voice.

    My grandson just recently bought me an ipad and I have been listening to your station on it. The songs make me feel young again.

    Hello. This is a very good station.

    Just listening to Kim on a Wednesday afternoon and wanted to say how much I enjoy his show.
    Frank, Merewether

    A great sounding station with a lot of wonderful music.
    Sam

    I am very pleased to have found a Newcastle Radio Station on the Internet. Your web page is very easy to use.

    I live in Hamilton and enjoy your music.
    Marie.

    Hi everyone at Radio 16, I just wanted to write and congratulate you all on the Station. You play the very best music and best of all you are locals.
    Evan, Stockton

    My comment is, this Station is Great!

    Just wanted to say I love the music you are playing on Radio 16. It is a great blend.

    We always listen to Kim’s Jazz club and love the interesting songs on Saturday nights. We also listen to Koop Kooper on Sundays.
    Bentley, Edgeworth

    Could my partner and I request some of the Band remotes from greats like Count Basie and Glenn Miller.
    David and Cheryl.

    Hi Radio 16. Your Radio station is the best. I listen to you all the time.

    Hi,
    Newcastle has needed a station like Radio 16 for so many years now. I love the music you play. None of that people talking about themselves like all the other stations around here, just one song I love after another.
    Simon

    Radio 16 is easy to use. I clicked your radio and I was listening to you. Thanks for making life easier for us older Novocastrians. My wife and I listen to you all day on our Internet.

    Dear Sirs,
    I wanted to thank you for bringing a station like Radio 16 to Newcastle.
    Amanda

    Thank you now I can listen to all the old time music I love.
    Max

    Hello Radio 16,
    Are you the only station in Newcastle that plays the music you do? A neighbour told me there was a station that you could hear if you put a paperclip in the Radio turner or something. We would not do this as it sounds very dangerous. All we can tune on our Radio is the ….. We like Radio 16 much better. I spend a lot of my time on my computer and its always there to listen to.
    Elaine, Mayfield

    Dear Radio 16,
    Just a short note to let you know how much we enjoy your Radio Station.
    Sam and Elise Mathews

    We heard the Newcastle Jazz Festival on your Station last year. Thank you for making this available to those of us too unwell to Attend.
    Emily

    I normally listen to my CDs but have found you. You sound as good on my computer as the CD player. As I get older I find it very hard to hear the radio as it sounds muffled. Now I am finding all these Radio Stations on the computer which I can hear
    properly.

    Dear Radio 16,
    My wife and I listen in to some of your shows from Sydney. You have a very special mix of music that we have not found anywhere else. There used to be a Radio station down here we listened too, but after our grandchildren bought us a new Stereo for the lounge room we could not hear them anymore. We were just starting to miss our favourite songs but found you on our computer.
    Bill Penale, Surry Hills

    Radio 16 is my favourite Radio Station.

    My son recently setup Radio 16 for me on my computer. My husband used to listen to his races on the Radio when he was alive. I did not know that I could hear Radio Stations on my computer too. I have been telling all my friends about you. You play all the songs I remember. Could you play more Elvis please.

    Hello from Kentucky, USA!

    Hi,
    I am particularly interested in music from the 1930’s and 40’s. Radio 16 is the best of its type around. I am pleased to see you have gone for the best sound quality possible. Usually this music is delegated to horrible sounding AM and often there is so much other noise its hard to hear the music properly. I know the
    source material is often not the best, but this is made far worse when played on AM Radio. Your Internet stream is the best sounding I have ever heard.
    Thanks,
    Ian Ambrose, Newcastle East

    We very much enjoy Kims Jazz on a Monday afternoon. Thank you Kim for playing all the local artists as we like them the best. Newcastle has some very good Jazz musicians who deserve a lot more Radio airplay.

    I used to listen to Radio 16 through another web site ……….. For some reason today I cant connect to any music there now, there s just a link that doesnt work?. Fortunately I bookmarked the proper site here. Just wanted to let you know I have been emailing everyone to let them know where the proper site is. Maybe you
    should put a note on your site or something.
    D.

    Dear Radio 16,
    My grandchildren think I am funny because every time I put your radio station on my computer I sing along. I sing in a womens’ choir in Newcastle and have been telling everyone in it about the station. You play a lot of the songs we perform. Thank you for keeping these great songs alive.

    My wife and I visited Newcastle early last year and discovered your Radio Station from friends who live there. We live in Port Macquarie and were very glad to bring your Radio Station home with us. Just thought you’d like to know you have quite a following up here.
    Darryl and Michele Greene, Port Macquarie

    Finally a Radio Station for people our age in Newcastle. Good on you
    Radio 16.

    I think you must have visited while I was out and taped my record Collection. I have every song you play at home. Can you play more Doris Day please.
    Stan

    God Bless you Radio 16 you brighten up my day. Listening from Perth.

    Hi,
    Radio 16 is the greatest Station in Newcastle.
    Kay

    Hello,
    I used to take a pocket radio with me on the bus around Newcastle. My son recently showed me that I can listen to Radio 16 on my phone. This is fantastic and I only need the phone which I take with me anyway. Thank you for giving me less to carry. More Sinatra please.
