We started with a program called “Backtrack” which is still going today and is music from the 1950’s & 1960’s. We have done interviews with some of the greats from that era, Guy Mitchell, Johnny Tillotson and Cliff Richard to name a few. Backtrack goes to air on Sundays from Noon to 2pm
We once did an Outside Broadcast for a whole week in King George Square in Brisbane from 9am to 4pm each day and our station stood out because of our open air style of broadcasting and people could actually come up and talk to the announcer and watch what we were doing.
I got the opportunity to do a regular Country program sometime in 2014 on Tuesday nights between 7pm & 10pm. Country and Country Rock are my second loves of music. My favourite Country artists being Alan Jackson, George Strait, Garth Brooks, Lee Kernaghan, Adam Brand & Dwight Yoakam to name a few, there are many more.
All the music we play on 101FM is all our own collection of music from Vinyl Records & CD’s and as long as we stay in format the selection of music is up to the presenter which I like.
I have served on the committee of 101FM a number of times mainly as Treasurer and enjoyed my time with them.
