While our Presenters are the front facing voice of South Coast FM, we also rely on our Crew of Staff & Volunteers. They are the people behind the scenes that run our Radio Station & keep us on-air 24/7.
Who are they, what do they do & how do I contact them? Visit our Crew page
During their programs, some Presenters take requests.

I’m a child of the mid 60’s, early 70’s.

I’ve loved radio ever since I built my first crystal set when I was 8. I’m a bit of a guitar freak (not that you could tell!) and I love guitar driven music especially from the 70s and 80s, such as the Eagles and Cold Chisel.
Great music puts a shiver down my spine, and can bring tears to my eyes! I’m also a fan of the Album as a music form as it communicates the “culture” and “place” of the artist at that time.
I live on the Bass Coast and consider myself very fortunate! I have opinions on most things and love to wax philosophically.
