Barry Kotze - Rest In Peace

Listen to the 10 Song Count of 1975 with Barry

It is with much sadness that we advise that long time presenter Barry Kotze, passed away in May 2020 after a long illness. Barry joined us approximately 15 years ago at Yarra Valley FM to fill a Sunday afternoon slot, and has been in that time slot continually ever since. He was previously at Eastern FM. He has always had a keen interest in Radio, and in addition has participated in Amateur Theatre companies, as well as a stint on Community Television, where he hosted a few programs. More recently, Barry presented a week day program at Yarra Valley FM, and his cheery voice combined with bright music made for good listening. He was a regular helper at our Outside Broadcasts, and performed an excellent job with interviewing members of the public, which provided for entertaining radio for us all. Our condolences are with Barry's family at this sad time.
