Presenter - Graham Pack
1. What time is your time slot and what does your session consist of?
Monday 11:00am until 2:00pm
My program is a musical kaleidoscope comprising tracks that ‘fall gently on the ears of the listener’ with special features such as a track from ‘Around the World’ and a track from ‘At the Movies’ with 3 tracks ‘Music from the Musicals’.
After the News at 12:00pm there is a 30 minute jazz session called ‘Hot Sweet and Jazzy’ introducing the best of local and imported jazz. T 1:00pm we have a short but very popular ‘Trivia and this week’s Quote’ segment followed by ‘The Home Grown Half Hour Plus’, featuring nine tracks vocal and instrumental from Australian artists, showcasing local talent, old and new.
The last 30 minutes of the time slot is devoted to ‘A Stroll Down Memory Lane’ featuring tracks from the 1920s to the 1950s.
2. 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’.
3. 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.
4. 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.
