Former Telecom rigger and friend of the Musick Point Radio Group, Paraire Walter ‘Friday’ Anania died on 17 December 2015, aged 59.

Long after Auckland Radio closed, Friday was always willing to help the club with antenna and other rigging projects. We will miss him and extend our condolences to his family.
