Radio Nova

Bossa Nova Online

Chris Cary, a man who revolutionised the Irish radio scene, at last has a tribute site on the world wide web. chriscary.com is the brainchild of Sybil Fennell, the voice of Nova news!

Chris Disappeared Again

ChrisCary.com’s contents have disappeared to be replaced by the message “This site is currently under construction…July 2000”. Last week a message appeared stating that Chris was no longer at The Verne (prison where he was serving his sentence) with no clue given as to his whereabouts. Whilst serving his time he was learning website design. Interesting conclusions could be drawn from the latest change to the website!

Chris Cary Has Had a Stroke

Chris Cary has had a severe stroke and is presently in hospital in the Isle of Wight. The incident happened over three weeks ago but the chriscary.com site was updated today for the first time since it happened. Chris’ application for parole was also heard last Wednesday but failed.
Letters of sympathy or get well cards can be sent to Chris via:- Saint Mary’s Hospital, Parkhurst Rd, Isle of Wight, England

Cary Returned to Prison

Chris Cary has been moved from his hospital bed on the Isle of Wight to Parkhurst prison on the island. In an update to the Chris Cary website this week, Sybil Fennell says that Chris is still not very well but he can walk again with the aid of a walking stick and has no use of his left hand. Chris is best known in Ireland for setting up Radio Nova in the early eighties.

Comment: Returning the man to prison seems very harsh…

Cary Wants a Job

Former Nova boss Chris Cary is still rehabilitating slowly following his stroke, according to chriscary.com. The second update to the website this week comes in the form of a job application which mentions that Chris will be released in March next year and wants to return to broadcasting – his major passion in life.
In the update, his partner Sybil Fennell says that: “…radio has always been his first love and I can think of no better way to help him to readjust to life than to encourage him to immerse himself in something that comes naturally to him.”
Suggestions and work offers are welcomed at sybil@chriscary.com.
The earlier update this week was a thank you to all those who had sent messages of support.

Comment: What better way for Mr Cary to rehabilitate himself. Again…get well asap.
