Vale: Paul Just

Dear all, 

We are saddened to bring you the news that our former station coordinator and fellow presenter, Paul Just, passed away last night. 

Paul dedicated himself to our station for the past 10 years of which 8 years was dedicated as station coordinator. 

Paul battled ill health for several years, and even at his worst moment in hospital he was still dedicated to serving and assisting presenters in need from his hospital bed. 

He differentiated himself by always keeping his door open showing that anyone was welcome to come in and talk to him.  His meeting place at the back of the station was where many ideas and exchanges between presenters took place. It was not only his smoko area but a place where he would smile and greet each and every presenter walking in and out of the station. 

His love for Northside Radio was second to none. And he continues to be an inspiration to those who have known him. If there is something we could say to you now that would be:

“Thank you and Thank you for your service. May your legacy of dedication and
commitment live on in all our hearts. “

Bruce Potter said on air this morning at 8:57am; “Paul, I will miss you son“, as many of us past and present presenters, volunteers and listeners will miss him. 

Vale Paul and thanks for everything.

The Board of Northside.

    Vale legend! I had the pleasure of spending a bit of time with Paul after after Yvette left, and always loved his openness to getting involved whenever he could, his sense of humour and found him always a genuine nice guy, who cared. One of the good ones for sure. Rest in peace Paul and thanks for bringing plenty of smiles to this world.

    I was saddened to hear of Pauls’s passing; I’ve known Paul for many years, being a regular at the radio station. Paul organised my sponsorship and set up a time slot for me to be a part of various presenter’s shows ‘Talking Real Estate.
    He will be missed by many. I hope he finally finds peace, especially after being ill for many years.

    Few people would know of the continual pressures of managing a radio station, especially a community station with the reliance on volunteers.

    Paul’s commitment was total. He was available at any time of the day or night. Finding fill in announcers, coping with technology problems, all the time with the immediacy of having to put live entertainment to air.

    We all have our idiosyncratic manners but Paul summarised his approach at the end of every email he sent where he would sign off with “You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.”
