Barry Jenkin Obituary, Death Cause – I wanted to introduce myself and offer my greetings in addition to expressing my appreciation for taking the time to read the newsletter over the past two weeks. When we heard the news about the demise of broadcaster Barry Jenkin, the members of the AudioCulture team had a great sense of loss, and we believe that a considerable number of you also experienced this same sense of sorrow upon hearing the news.
A newly-published page of memories collected from Jenkin’s friends and comrades-in-arms is one of the many pieces that we have on Jenkin’s distinguished career in radio and television. This page is only one of the many that we have. In addition to these works, we also have a number of other items about Jenkin’s career. You can find a number of additional articles on our website that concentrate on Jenkin’s work life if you look for them there. Andra, the daughter of Dr. Rock, has diligently compiled a playlist of thirty of her father’s all-time favorite songs as an additional gesture of celebration and remembrance of Jenkin.
This playlist will be played at the memorial service. Other new features include an article written by Gareth Shute that is a profile of the band Kings; a visual essay written by Jonathan Ganley that is based on the years that he spent working at 95bFM; and an article written by NZ On Screen that is a celebration of the beginning of television in New Zealand. You’ll be able to find each of these brand-new features on the website.
