The Mayor of South Tyneside, Councillor Richard Porthouse, took some time out from his busy schedule in the final few weeks of his tenure to drop into the studios of Radio South Tyneside for a chat.
Cllr Porthouse came along to help mark the 60th Anniversary of the service and remarked how impressed he was with such a professional organisation provided entirely by volunteers.
The Mayor then had a chat on air with Station Manager Ron Cameron looking back on some of the many civic events he has presided over in the borough over the previous 12 months.
Radio South Tyneside is celebrating its Diamond Anniversary in 2016 with a number of events planned to mark the occasion over the summer. More details can be found on their website at www.radiosouthtyneside.co.uk.
Radio South Tyneside is a FREE entertainment and information service and can be found on Channel 1 of the bedside entertainment system in South Tyneside District Hospital.
