BONJOUR mes amis! Why the French?
Because this week we are profiling Henri, one of the many presenters of international back- ground who make 4CRM 107.5 FM so diverse and unique.
Never a boring moment on this community ra- dio station which was voted Most Outstanding Small Station at the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA) Conference in 2019.
Henri has been at 4CRM since its first week in 1993 at the suggestion of one of the origi- nal board members who proposed he present a French program and so “Bonsoir Mackay” was born. Read on to find out more about Henri......
