FOR the third year running, ace jazz broadcaster (and failed trombone player – Frank Traynor advised him to stick to his day job) Geoff Tobin will be bringing jazz and joy to the airwaves on Radio 3CR (855 AM) on Wednesday afternoons from 2pm to 4pm.
Geoff’s program, Jazz on a Lazy Wednesday Afternoon, will run from New Year’s Day until some time in March. (The usual presenters in this time slot are taking an extended holiday).
As most of you know, Geoff is one of the regular stable of presenters on the Victorian Jazz Club’s record breaking program, Jazz on a Saturday, which has been running on Saturday afternoons same station, same time, same presenters since 3CR began broadcasting in 1976.
Geoff’s tastes in jazz and blues are very wide ranging, his style is relaxed and knowledgable. There’ll be surprises, performers or tracks you may not have heard before, but balanced with some local talent and old favourites. Something for every taste and temper.
So don’t miss Geoff on Wednesday arvos on Melbourne radio at 855AM, or listen live through you computer at www.3cr.org.au. If you’re out of range for either of these options there’s an app for iPads called Tunein available from http://tunein.com/. This will also allow you to listen to most radio stations around the world, live.
