PODCAST TIME presents 'Light From Within The Gloom" podcast 8.00 am on Noosa FM 101.3 or live stream on Sunday 14th of August 2022.
Over past episodes in this podcast mini-series, we have explored many of the pressing challenges of the day: Most especially the changing climate of the planet and the related global warming have focused our attention. We have talked about the key features and about the appeals by the IPCC and other international and national bodies for policies, strategies and behaviours to change our reliance on fossil fuel. Energy and transport are two particular areas where very significant changes are possible especially through technological innovations.
Richard’s guest in this episode is at the heart of a good news story in Australia that is rising to precisely this challenge. Greg McGarvie, who is the managing director of the Australian Clean Energy Electric Vehicle Group (ACE EV) discusses their innovations which are providing what he refers to as a ‘door opener’ for energy and transport.

Host: Prof. Richard Bawden
Guest: Dr Stefanie Fishel
One of the major impediments to progress being made in response to the dire challenges posed by climate change, seems to be our reluctance as human beings to see ourselves as part of nature. In a somewhat refreshing commentary, a new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released in February, suggests that major steps forward could be taken if we were to approach the issue from the perspective of social justice. To concern ourselves with fundamental questions about what it means to be human: to appeal to our better selves and to think about nature as well as about our fellow human beings from a connected context of care and empathy, ethics, and morality.
These are matters which our host, Richard Bawden, pursues with his guest in this episode, Dr Stefanie Fishel who is Lecturer in politics, international development, ecology, environmental justice, and law with special interests in climate change and biodiversity. With her broad compass of interests and expertise, it will be of no surprise that this conversation covers an extraordinary diversity of topics. These include relationships between citizens, politicians, and institutions in general, land ownership in Australia, agriculture, social justice, and indigenous ways of knowing, among others..

“In this week we celebrate nationally what has become known as Harmony week. Established by the Howard government back in 1999, Harmony Day (the 21st March) was intended as a celebration of cohesion and inclusion within Australian society. It was also to promote a tolerant and culturally diverse society.
In this episode we hear from two young women from different countries in the region about their experiences as immigrants into such a claimed culture - is it as good as it gets or is there still room for getting to better?”

Hey hey, I am Chloe, and moved up from Sydney to Noosa. I am 23 and enjoy pop music, pop culture,
and my favourite thing is listening to the radio.
I was 9 years when I was first on radio on a Sydney AM station and I answered the correct answer
in a competition about the deadliest spider in the world. I was the winner, because,
I knew it was the Brazilian Wandering Spider and to my glory, I won a Human Nature CD.
All my family was so proud of me and ever since then I wanted to be a radio presenter so I could give some winner a CD too.
Now, I am here at Noosa FM and I can say “I am on the radio you know!”

"NELLIE'S COUNTRY" SUNDAY Lunch time 12 - 2 PM
"LUNCH DELIGHTS" THURSDAY Lunch time 12 - 2 PM
"Nellie's Country" is a great blend of modern country music. I fell in love with this music when I was living in country NSW. The stories that the songs told with the music was exactly what I was looking for at that time in my life.
I started radio in country NSW on KRR FM and then went to Mackay’s 4CRM.
My love for committee radio has never wavered and I enjoy every minute I am in the studio.
I relocated to Noosa and quickly joined Noosa FM. Here I present to you "Nellie's Country" on Sunday afternoon from 12-2 PM and same times on a Thursday a mix of easy to listen music program called "Lunch Delights".
Join me at lunch times and Thank you Noosa FM for allowing me to be part of this amazing team.

"THE DIVE" WEDNESDAY: Nights 8 - 10 PM
Deano has been a bit of a nomad over the past decade; bouncing from his motherland in the UK to Canada and has now called Australia home since 2014. As one of our newest team members, he is excited to be part of the Noosa FM family and be the soundtrack to your mid week nights.
"I am a sucker for any song that builds with layers and has some chunky vocals!" In short, Deano's ideal ambience would be for his soundtrack to be played to accompany you whilst you and your closest friends are watching the sunset as you bounce along the Noosa River on a BBQ pontoon; a perfect blend of funky house, indie pop and all things electro.
So come and join "The Dive" with Deano; explore some new tunes and rediscover some absolute classics.
My first involvement in radio announcing was in the late 1970's when I attended the Air/TV course, hosted by 4IP News presenter, John Knox, and QTQ9's Jim Iliffe.
After "dabbling" in radio for a few years, I joined the Australian Army and served 9 years with the Royal Australian Engineers. Post Army, I attained a Social Science degree and a couple of small business ventures that led me to Toowoomba. In Toowoomba I was a coach driver and road train driver. Retiring to the Sunshine Coast in 2018, while serving my community as a Justice of the Peace, an opportunity arose to reinvigorate my former radio prowess with Noosa FM. Starting September 11, 2021, "The Big Kahuna" commences at Noosa FM on Saturday evenings with his "Classic Rock" Show playing classic rock from the 1960's, 70's, 80's and 90's; and occasionally slipping into the classic pop genre.
All of us at Noosa FM would like to invite you to come along to our “Open Studio Day” 10 am to 2 PM on Tuesday 27th of July.
We have given our facilities at The J Building in the Noosa Junction a makeover, and we would like to give you an opportunity to see what we have achieved and to help us celebrate to thank the Queensland Government for the Grant from the Community Benefit Funding program to Noosa FM that has made all this possible.
In front of the station will be live music, entertainment, and opportunities for some fun selfies with Melony Breast.
You can get your voice recorded with one of our on-air announcements, e.g. “my name is Peter and I am from Tewantin, Noosa FM is my favourite radio station.”
There will be lots to see from our sponsors and community supporters and a Sausage sizzle and soft drinks together with some merchandise available to help continue fund raising Noosa FM.

Noosa FM 101.3 Radio For Our Community.
Thursdays Brekky 6 - 9 am
Born and bred in southeast Queensland.
Hailing from the Darling Downs (so a bit of country may slip in!) with a long career in aviation and tourism I’m now living back on the coast and loving it and being part of the Noosa FM team presenting the Thursday Breakfast program.
I’ve a pretty wide taste in music and want to present you with “Classic Hits With A Folk Rock Twist”.
There’ll be music to sing along to loudly in your car as well as a few off-beat surprises and new music. I’ll bring TMR live traffic update to you whilst keeping the show upbeat and for a smooth and safe drive.
MONDAY BREAKFAST: Mondays 6 - 9 am
Bob is the inaugural Gympie Gold Rush Soap Box Derby Champion (Circa 1984) and has great plans of one day becoming Batman. This, combined with the fact that he has no interest in news and current affairs, and is completely ignorant to upcoming weather events makes him the logical choice to be a breakfast radio presenter.
It does help however that he is an early riser and is addicted to coffee.
