It is with a heavy heart and deep regret that the RPP FM family announce the passing of long time member and Jazz Presenter Barry (Baz) Wightman last Monday.
Baz retired from his radio days in August 2013 after an on air career extending across several decades bringing many hours of jazz music enjoyment to his avid listeners.
Graeme Kniese, RPP FM President and long time friend and radio buddy, shared the Jazztime program as presenters when the partnership began in the early nineties.
“Barry was a stalwart of the station since the very beginning at the original studios in Octavia Street, Mornington over 25 years ago,” Graeme said.
A memorial service will held this Friday, 27 March at 2pm
232 Cranbourne Road
in honour of Barry Wightman
He will be sadly missed. RIP Baz.
