The purpose of the visit was to understand the inner workings of radio, to practice scheduling, timing and speaking skills as part of the numeracy and literacy program.
Robert went on to explain some of the terms used and the personnel that make up a radio station and what those people do.
Segments such as news and weather was illustrated right through to traffic, accidents and even pet search, with one student asking "if some one loses a chicken can that be put on air", yes Robert replied
