The Life Of A Museum Guide
I arrive ten minutes or so before ten o’clock to turn the lights on and open up the museum. The kettle is usually on by now and I made a cuppa and catch up with the office staff and presenters as well as my fellow guide. Not much to do until the first visitor walks up the pathway to the cottage.
I welcome and have a little chat with them. Generally people how come to the door are interested in what we have to offer. I give a little history chat about the Park and City Park Radio before a look at the exhibits. I know about half a dozen of the items quite well to pass on my knowledge to the visitors. I find everybody recognises one or two of the radios from their younger days.
When they have had their fill of the museum I take them over to the studios to see our working radio station and to meet the presenter. On the way I show the visitors the oldest Wisteria in Australia, they all love it.
Upon returning to the museum I try my hardest to get a nice big donation to help the station before saying goodbye to them.

THE HOT SEAT
The Hot Seat is City Park Radio’s weekly interview program, where you can get to know someone from our local community. The program could be described as a social history of northern Tasmania, sharing the lived experiences of the actual person sitting in the Hot Seat. Hear it on Sunday at 11am and then repeated on Friday at 4pm.
Previous Hot Seat programs can be heard on the podcast page of our website, where you can browse the archive going back to 2018. These stories provide a vivid picture of life in Launceston and northern Tasmania, and the library continues to grow.
