Respect to Culture

We should show respect to the Elders and accept culturally ways

God I miss you John Faine.

It’s been about a year since you were on the radio. I miss my mornings with John. The best radio interviewer of all time.

Save us all ,

Miss the old show

The convo hour was once great listening but now it’s more promotions of industry and fluff pieces on irrelevant subjects. I find abc Melbourne has really changed since John left and is targeting a much younger audience. The show needs to go back in-house and be hosted by Virginia in the studio. Richelle was amazing in the afternoons, JP treats her audience like 4 year olds.
