Eli, of Raglan
We're had so much fun meeting Eli, of Raglan. Eli had never been in a radio station before and he's only 9 (10 in August!) But he blew our
socks off with how comfortable he was behind the mic. Paris, Prue and Aiden, our other guests were pretty incredible too! In fact they were all stars!
Eli has only been a part of the Raglan community for a year, but they've made him and his family feel very welcome. So it was no surprise that Eli made us feel very welcome, at the Radio Raglan studios.
We can't wait to find out what Eli does next. His outgoing, friendly personality meant he was a star before he even sat in the co-host chair! We loved meeting Eli and are really proud to say he's our friend!
Eli is a young man of many talents and his love of reading was a huge help when it came to sharing a book review, remembering facts (about all kinds of things!) and announcing the songs and stories, as our Co-Host Eli is wonderful friend who enjoys a good laugh and a good game. He also likes to get involved and be a part of a team. He and a friend even created a social community soccer game recently! It seems that every kid in Raglan enjoys swimming (and jumping off the bridge) Eli is no exception, except at this time of the year Brrrr.
But he also gives pretty much anything ago and with the help of his mum's photography skills was able to give Pikachu a chance to enjoy this "ollie"! We were also lucky enough to meet Paris, while we were in Raglan. Paris is also an amazing young Raglan-ite, who recently won an award for her work and commitment with ST Johns! Listen out for Paris over the next few weeks, on Suzy & Friends. Prue is Paris' younger sister and although she hadn't entered the Radio Star competition, was just as amazing on the microphone as Paris was! Listen out for Prue's jokes over the next week or two. Aiden entered the competition from Auckland! He stays with this Nana when he's in Raglan and has a heap of fun there. Aiden's awesome imagination meant he had lots to share - listen out for him over the next couple of weeks too.
