THANKS TO TV SHOW CREATOR PETER HOSKING
AND LAITH GRAHAM
Nu Country TV, filmed and edited by Laith Graham, has been a popular icon on free community TV for 16 years.
Our loyal and creative editor-camera operator and co-producer Laith took over the reins of Nu Country TV for 18 series for more than 200 episodes and ensured our survival.
Laith took a short break from filming and editing in November, 2017, after suffering a serious hip injury in his professional career.
But the dynamic proud father boomeranged for our autumn, winter and spring series.
Laith took the reins from teenage editor Blaize Warden for Series #19 and #20 and secondary teacher Ashley Hall who edited the previous three series after a long stint by fellow teacher Peter Staubli.
Singing actor Peter Hosking created Nu Country TV in 2002 after working as a DJ-voiceover maestro on our station.
Hosking launched, edited and produced the earlier series that were born from the ashes of Nu Country FM .
That was during our seven-year era at Beer Can Hill, Northcote, until fire destroyed the studio on June 26, 2000.
Thanks to Bayside Bob Crain - musician, landlord and breakfast DJ - we were resurrected in Harley House at the Paris , Texas end of Collins St in the CBD in 2001.
The aspirant radio station began at Bundoora in 1994 with the late former Preston mayor Bill Corrie as embryonic president.
