I was a schoolboy in Leicestershire, England, and wrote to Radio Hauraki after reading about it in a newspaper here.

To my amazement, Keith Ashton replied to my letter by sending me a tape of himself and another DJ, which they recorded in a 20 minute break in the studio between recording their programmes.

I wish I still had the recording but I don't. It featured two jingles, "1480 for all good girls", and "from ship to shore radio number one" and making a tape for me and sending me some car stickers and other publicity material was a wonderfully kind gesture which I will never forget!
