Lionel Priest
Radio Kidnappers is extremely sad to advise that one of our many long-serving volunteer broadcasters, Lionel Priest, has passed away after a long illness.

Despite his ill-health and ongoing treatment, Lionel - as was typical of him - persevered against the odds and continued to meticulously prepare and cheerfully present his "Theatre Themes" weekly one-hour music show up until very recently. He also hosted the monthly "Arts On Air" one-hour bulletin prior to the onset of his illness. Both these programmes had been running for well over ten years, and reflected his in-depth and life-long love of shows and theatre, as well as his commitment to the Station and to his many listeners.

Lionel also served on the Radio Kidnappers Board of Trustees for a number of years, was an enthusiastic and very active life-member of Theatre Hawke's Bay (including serving terms as both President and Secretary) and was also a keen member of the Vintage Car Club.

We will miss Lionel both on the airwaves and as a frequent friendly visitor dropping into the station at other times to chat with staff and other broadcasters so as to keep up-to-date with the latest Station happenings.

We extend our sincere condolences to Lionel's next-of-kin and wider family at this sad time.
