  • I am also sad to know that Ward is retiring. I have been a listener to to him since 3AK days. Always loved his comments on buildings as I to have a passion for majestic old buildings. You will be missed.

  • Ward, long time no see. I now live in St Leonards where the reception is pretty good for 1278 a lot of water has gone under the bridge since 3AK days when we first met, good to hear you are still doing what you love and we love to listen. All kids doing fine and grown up now have to deal with grandkids. Please come and clean my windows! Ha Ha

  • Hi Ward
    You are the best announcer on the station as you don't "rabbit on" and insist on giving out the weather forecast like some do..
    Keep up the great work !!
    Love the music selections..
