Monday Mornings begin with Graham Ross and ‘Garden Clinic’, followed by ‘Music from the Stage and Screen’, then a selection of music from the 30s and 40s until our latest serial at 11am.
Then a segment entitled ‘Listen to the Banned’, music that is enjoyed today that was banned from the airwaves for many and varied reasons.
This week’s trivia and quote comes before ‘The Home Grown Half Hour Plus’ – nine tracks featuring Australian entertainers with vocals and instrumentals.
The final hour of the program starts with ‘Hot, Sweet and Jazzy’ – a must for Jazz lovers. Produced at ‘The Pulse’ in Geelong, it’s well worth tuning into. The program concludes with ‘A Stroll Down Memory Lane’.
How did you first connect with GDR?
Some twenty plus years ago, the family were eating out at the Caulfield Racecourse bistro and I discovered a brochure on how to obtain better reception for Golden Days Radio. I was curious and tuned in that weekend and found music that I enjoyed and I contacted the station and as they say ‘the rest is history’.
Why did you want to be a presenter?
In the early days there was a very small and dedicated group that operated the station and despite my age at the time (mid 40’s), I put my hand up to eventually become a presenter. The granting of additional days of broadcasting spread the number of presenters to the limit so I was trained as a presenter and shared the Saturday Drive time slot with others and over the years with retirement, I’ve settled into Monday morning doing something I enjoy and the listeners can share in the entertainment.
What experience do you want to give your listeners?
The opportunity to relax in the middle of the day with music that they will enjoy and relate to and want to tune in at the same time each week to listen to.
