Trudy de Vries, Annie Wiebenga, Peter Schoutens and Yvon Davis
Trudy  is the mainstay of our Dutch program but if she ever needs some time off our station has another two fabulous volunteers who love the opportunity to speak Dutch and play some Dutch music.  They are Annie Wiebenga and Peter Schoutens.  Peter joined our team to help with “Courier on the Air” but as often happens, our volunteers are multi-talented and he has not only helped with our Studio rebuild, OB’s, Panel Training for our “Courier on the Air” people and Maintenance team but he also speaks Dutch so was only to willing to help Trudy out and revisit his Dutch music collection with a little help from Di.
Yvon is one of the current City of Ballarat Multicultural Ambassadors.  Prior to heading up the SBS Dutch program she began as a Dutch presenter at our station.  It is lovely to have her back as a guest presenter who is also working to establish a Multicultural program.

The Dutch program is one of Voice FM’s long standing Ethnic programs that features…

  • News updates from the Netherlands via ‘Radio Nederland’.
  • Dutch news from ‘Holland Focus’.
