THE BLOKE I LIVE WITH



This is the bloke I live with........

He didn't always look like this. When I met him he had hair.....lots of it..... And really there wasn't all that much that we had in common, except for our love of Jazz..... so much so that we found we had some of the same records in our collections....... Remember records? They were those big round vinyl platters (and I hear they are coming back into fashion can you believe)

There must have been some sort of spark because that was back in the 50's and here we are together still.......and yes, those vinyls are still with us

But I digress.....

Now in retirement he has found a new and wonderful hobby as a presenter on community radio and gets to play lots of wonderful stuff every Friday night for 2 HOURS.... He's in Jazz heaven!

He has been doing this now for several years since the station's inception and his collection continues to grow across every genre. He reckons he's got something for everyone no matter what their taste in Jazz....

The wonderful thing is he can be heard world wide! Yes, anyone can hear the live broadcast......just log on to www.coralcoastradio.net.au and he'll be there every Friday night from 8pm - 10pm Eastern Australian Time

















When he first started broadcasting it was understood that I would listen at home.....so he knew he had at least one person tuned in.... ( He would sometimes dedicate a track to "his listener").... but now I go with him to the studio to take any calls that may come in. He gets a real kick to know there are people out there...listening....


"They're out there Mulder" he often says

And here he is enjoying some of his fine Jazz.....

Go Man.....Go...Play that thing!
