Geoff Morris from Bendigo, Victoria, presents a regular radio program featuring national and international bluegrass music artists. Indeed this week Geoff clock up his 325th broadcast. Â He tells us that he loves it as much today, if not more, than when the show commenced nearly four years ago.
Geoff also tells us that he is to be featured in a radio presenter profile in the September/October issue of Bluegrass Music Profiles magazine.
Kevin Kurfoot contacted me three months ago suggesting I submit answers to some questions for printing in Bluegrass Music Profiles magazine. I am tremendously thrilled and honoured to have this profile now appear in the September-October 2010 issue.
To be included in such a widely read and highly respected bluegrass publication is both significant and tremendously gratifying. It is a strong recognition that presenters from far-away Australia have a key part to play in promoting fabulous bluegrass music worldwide, though ten thousand miles from the centre of bluegrass activity, especially at this time of year.
On a personal note, I’m just rapt that the wonderful friendship and correspondence with so many people, and those hours beyond calculation spent researching programmes is truly of value and a worthwhile contribution to the joy we all share playing and listening to this fabulous music. Sincere thanks to Kevin and Lori for their recognition of this far distant presenter and, likewise, to Gracie and all at worldwidebluegrass.com for continued support – Geoff Morris.
Geoff’s popular Wall-To-Wall Bluegrass show can be heard on www.worldwidebluegrass.com each Tuesday morning for three hours from eleven a.m. and each Saturday morning for three hours from eight, Eastern Australian Standard Time.
