1929: AW Head to take command at Awarua Radio

NZ Truth, 13 June 1929, p 6


There are those among us who cannot understand why a radio inspector — the man who makes elaborate plans to unearth unlicensed sets — should be, after all, a good fellow loved even by those whom he chasteneth.

Yet the farewell given in Christchurch to Mr A.W. Head — who is leaving to assume command at Radio Awarua, near Invercargill — showed the popularity that comes about through exercising a little tact and consideration.

“A.W.H.” has been one of the leading factors in the progress of radio in New Zealand, and was far from selfish with the knowledge that comes of long experience. In his new command he will be instrumental in keeping New Zealand in touch with the great big world outside.
