Polish Radio Kurier


The Polish Radio Kurier was born on 27 March 1988 to promote Polish culture and language and to keep the local Polish community well informed. Since 1993 the program has been broadcast on World Radio 6EBA-FM under the auspices of the Polish Australian Cultural Society in Western Australia Inc.Over the years so many people took part in making this program; for some of them it was the beginning of their professional career in journalism - Leszek Jakubik became an ABC TV news reporter, and Adrian Kwintowski became the editor of the Kalgoorlie Miner newspaper, to name just few... There were also Krystyna Jalowiecka-Rog and Pawel Mankowski who produced many programs in the past.


Andrew Basinski, whose career in broadcasting started many years ago back in Poland, has been the program's producer and and console operator from Kurier's inception.Today the magazine style program has a full team of volunteers including Mieczyslaw Bieganski, Fr. Tomasz Bujakowski and Ewa Jaroszewicz (arts and culture correspondent from Warsaw), and last but not least Jacek Slawomirski.

Unforgettable Moments...

Over the years we have interviewed so many interesting people from Perth,Australia, Poland and other countries as well - having them either live in the studio or over the phone - it would be difficult to name them allBut- it was that visit in November 2006 which closed off Fitzgerald Streetin North Perth for a while when a Polish Harley-Davidson gang ofmotorbikies tried to park their gold machines outside our radiostation, before popping in for a colorful chat... For the last fewyears they have been touring the world on their Harley Davidsonmachines. Despite their rather strange (all black!) looks, all guysturned out to be very friendly and good talkers as well. Good for theradio!
