THE GOOD NEWS: Tuesday 6 pm - 8 pm
I joined the station back in 2006 a year before we won Australia’s Best Community Radio Station. It was an exciting time of moving to the flash new premises at the J in Noosa Junction and lots was happening. I ran drive time and Brekky shows with a variety of co-hosts such trying out some innovative platforms such as Backpacker radio where I would gather a raggedy bunch of international travelers from the nearby hostel and drag them all into the studio to talk about their Noosa experience and play some of their favourite music from back home.
Variety is most definitely more than just the spice of my life, it IS my life, with over eighty different careers in my portfolio so far (I’m aiming for one hundred and one) and I believe in spreading that joy. This leaps out, hopefully, in the eclectic breadth of my musical tastes which I will rejoice in sharing with listeners in the new show “The Good News” on Tuesday nights.
Having travelled the myriad highways and backwaters of this epic land for many years I chose Noosa as the perfect place to raise a family and settle in my home at the beloved Lake Cooroibah.
In the missing years between my radio stints I gained a degree in creative writing and held a few more great jobs for my growing employment history. The next one for that list is ‘Writer’ …at last – time to pursue my biggest dream of all.
