TUESDAY: CLOP POP 6 - 8 pm with Chloe
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.
BREAKFAST: Tuesday 7 - 9 am
DRIVE: Thursdays 4 - 6 PM
Born and bred in southeast Queensland I’m new to the Noosa FM team and looking forward to present the Thursday Drive program.
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.
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 keep the show upbeat and smooth your drive home.
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.
"JAZZ LESS ORDINARY" with Floyd Sundays 2 – 5 PM
I’ve been around the world and I, I, I (apologies to Lisa Stansfield!) ….. ended up in Noosa 3 years ago. I’m from New Orleans, LA where music and rhythm are in the blood. I’ve been a soul/jazz fan from when I was knee high to a grasshopper – try convincing your uni friends that Sun Goddess by Ramsey Lewis is to be preferred to literally any track by [insert virtually any rock band you can think of]!! I’m here to share my love and passion for the music that transports me in the hope that it will transport you, too, to wherever you want to go.
Check out my program "Jazz Less Ordinary" on Sundays from 2 PM - 5 PM where I play Nu Jazz, Acid Jazz, Contemporary Jazz, Nu Bossa and Brazilian Grooves, Neo Soul, Downtempo and Afro Beats. In short, music to move the mind, move the body, move the soul.
Bats make up 20% of all mammals and there are 1400 different species of different sizes pretty much all over the world. They are the only mammal capable to sustain flight covering long distances. Our flying foxes bats are nomadic and cover 1000s of kilometer to travel to food sources. While they travel around, they pollinate our native trees and their work creates new forests.
Quote - https://littleaussiebat.com.au
"Flying-foxes are hard-working little Aussies. They are FIFO workers on the night shift – flying out from their camps at dusk to feed on flowering or fruiting plants and trees. And then they do the incredibly important job of spreading pollen and seeds – up to 60,000 seeds each along a 50km stretch of land every night! When their crucial work is done, they head back to camp before dawn to sleep through the day, ready for their next shift. Their contribution to the health of our native forests cannot be overstated......
LEAN CLEAN FLYING MACHINES
Contrary to what you may have heard, flying-foxes are very clean animals that are constantly grooming and cleaning themselves. However, they also communicate by scent. Odours are used to identify camp trees, each other, and also to attract mates. Mothers are able to locate their pups in crèche trees by their scent and calls."
What can we do to support Council's work on tracking them?
Simply Download the tracking app 'Clean Air and Urban Landscapes (CAUL) Urban Wildlife’ app and log any sightings of flying-foxes.
You can record flying-fox sightings from your home or as you go for a walk around your local area.
Please do NOT touch any bat! In South-east Queensland report all sick and injured bats to the Wildcare Hotline on 07 5527 2444 or the RSPCA Queensland on 1300 ANIMAL (1300 264 625).
