An introduction to Mornings on Double J
“New year, new me” is a mantra that has become a joke, but this January it rings beautifully true for us both. With a Melbourne shuffle from my long-running Mornings show on triple j, I begin 2018 with a new show to share with you.
Same time, same days, but we’ve moved into a slightly less grotty sharehouse. It’s wine tasting instead of goon of fortune, and central to it all is the what has filled my life; a love of music.
I can’t imagine my days without a soundtrack. Whether it’s the songs that punctuated my formative years in the '90s and fleshed out the skeleton of my musical heart, or the new tunes that keep me searching far and wide in venues, music blogs and long email threads with nerd pals.
I want to bring all of that to you, every day on Double J, and hear what you’re loving as well.
Years of music journalism and fandom has shown me one thing; it takes a village. I can’t wait to share these discoveries, and have these convos with my Double J fam.
Having one-on-ones with the people that create the songs we love, well that’s just about my favourite adventure. 2018 will see plenty of that, including the Take 5 co-host every Friday.
So, let’s dive in, together. And recall the glow of our faves, while basking in the sunshine of the new. It’s gonna be fun. Thanks for having me over.
