A good week in Melbourne.

I love living in Melbourne, but some weeks are even better than others.

Last week I enjoyed my annual Stadium Stomp volunteer shift at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.  I love being at the G early in the morning, when it is just coming to life.  Sure, its cold but it is spectacularly beautiful.  I admire the Stompers who climb (and descend) the 7000 plus steps, bay by bay, but I still haven’t tried it myself.  Maybe next year.

On Tuesday I enjoyed a long chat with my friend and former SYN Media colleague, Jonathan Brown, for his 94.9 program Stripped Down. We (okay, it was mostly me) had a long chat about sports.  Thanks JB!

And on Wednesday I joined the inimitable Andy Bell at The Wheeler Centre to listen to Martin Flanagan and Bob Murphy chat about their books The Short Long Book and Murphy’s Lore: Tales from the West. I’ve just finished Bob’s (and loved it) and look forward to devouring Flanagan’s soon.

About Danae Gibson

My first love is radio and I am the Talks Producer at RTRFM 92.1. From 2014 - 2017 I coordinated the Broadcast Journalism Diploma course at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne. From 2012-2015 I loved my role as Diversity Programming Coordinator at SYN Media. I moved to Melbourne to take on the GM role at LGBTI community radio station JOY 94.9 in 2009 and for many years before that I enjoyed program making, training and more at Perth's Sound Alternative RTRFM 92.1.
