Geoff Tobin lightens up the airwaves during January

IN 2012 Radio 3CR (855 AM) asked Geoff Tobin to host a two hour music program on Wednesday afternoons in January from 2pm to 4pm. This year they’ve asked him to do it again!

As Victorian jazz listeners will know, Geoff is one of the four presenters of the Victorian Jazz Club’s “Jazz on a Saturday” which has been a voice of jazz continuously since the station was launched in 1976.

Last year Geoff called his program “A Lazy Wednesday Afternoon”and my guess is that the 2013 version will be a similar wide-ranging mix of jazz, blues and other genres chosen from Geoff’s vast and varied collection of recordings, presented in his inimitable relaxed and informed style.

The first program will go to air live on Wednesday 2 January, and will include “everything from Blind Lemon Jefferson to Art Pepper and beyond” (Geoff’s words).
If you’re within range of 3CR this will be required listening on January Wednesdays. And if you’re out of range, you can listen on your computer through streaming or podcast from http://www.3cr.org.au/3CR_streaming

And here’s Blind Lemon Jefferson singing “He Arose From the Dead”

  1. Looking forward to it! There is also a great iPad app that allows you to listen to almost any radio station in the world live, and 3CR can be listened to through this. It’s called TuneIn Radio. We will be listening to Geoff from Florida!
