We were saddened to learn recently of the death of someone who has been a part of HRB’s programme schedule since the 1990s.
Ray Oxley was the man behind shows that have been heard on HRB off and on for 25 years and has been a part of many other stations too. He produced The Golden Years, The Comedy Hour and In Concert, three of the original syndicated shows for hospital radio. He also presented The Classic Chart Show and helped Peter Grogan create and produce The Best of British Classical Music, currently heard on Sunday mornings on HRB.
Ray’s station was Prince Bishop Hospital Radio (formerly Auckland Hospital Radio) and he was part of the station for over 20 years leading it through change and transformation.
