St Helena’s Mister Radio just keeps on going: please support Tony Leo’s marathon broadcast

St Helena Online salutes the achievements of the indefatigable Tony Leo, St Helena’s own Mr Radio.

After 45 years on air, Tony decided he might as well move into the studio on a long-term basis. At 7am on Saturday, 6 July 2013, he began a marathon broadcasting session in aid of the relaunched Saint FM Community Radio.

It was classic Saint broadcasting; the hours rolled by but the chat was as perky as ever.

Readers who haven’t signed up to hear the paid-for internet streaming are encouraged to pay tribute to Tony’s efforts by doing so – or at least, to join St Helena Online in making a small (or large) donation.

Tony suggests a pound an hour…

Saint FM does not benefit from the tens of thousands of pounds paid by the British taxpayer to sustain the rival – and often very good – SAMS Radio 1.

Saint FM exists because people on the island were determined to get it back on air after it closed just before Christmas Day 2012.

It is possibly the best and biggest example of Saints acting together to give the people what they wanted, and not what the government decided they should have (the government, we should acknowledge, did grant a broadcasting licence).

It is, quite simply, the people’s radio station. For that reason, and for many others, it deserves support.

SIGN UP or DONATE via the Saint FM website.
