THE R&B EXPERIENCE

Welcome to The R&B Experience - a radio program dedicated to real rhythm & blues from Australia and around the world, playing music from the 1930's through to today. The program is broadcast every Thursday night 9pm EST from the studios of 2BACR 100.9fm in south west Sydney, Australia.

ABOUT YOUR HOST

I first started in radio way back in January 1990 at my local station 2BCR (later renamed to B-FM, and now known as 2BACR) at Bankstown. At the time I hosted a weekly music program on Tuesday nights covering music from the 50’s to the 80’s. Around 1993 I changed the format to a purely R&B-based program called “The R&B Experience”. Also at this time I joined our Saturday morning sports program Sports AM covering basketball & baseball.


During mid-1996 I decided to move stations and presented a music show on 2SSR Sutherland. It was also a various music format and ran until October 1998 when I shifted to 2GLF Liverpool to do Sunday breakfast. It was also in this time that I had a short stint on commercial station 2CA Canberra. The 2CA show did not last long and I was back at 2GLF until the end of 2000.


I took 2001 off to live & work in London with my wife before returning home, restarting my Sunday breakfast show at 2GLF. This last until mid-2005 when I picked up a casual show on Campbelltown’s commercial station C91.3. I was there for 2 years before I lost my shift and found myself (again) back at 2GLF, this time as a duo on Sunday nights for a music program called “Retro Rock Live” (www.retrorocklive.com).


We stayed at 2GLF until May 2019 when we moved on to Campbelltown’s local station 2MCR. Unfortunately circumstances changed between some team members & the show wound down in August 2020.


Feeling the need to get back into solo shows I have now restarted The R&B Experience at my very first station 2BACR. I am very excited on 2 counts : playing real rhythm & blues music from Australia & around the world, and also being on my own for the first time in 13 years.


The R&B Experience is broadcast every Thursday night from 9pm Australian Eastern time and goes for 3 hours. Check your clocks for local times….
