“Time for a Break”

Jim Grocott has been a member of FM107.5 since 2007 and he worked in the telecommunications industry before retiring.

Jim broadcasts “Time for a Break” on Thursdays between 2.00 pm and 5.00 pm which focuses on country, jazz and Christian music. Jim has also presented a jazz and blues music program during his time with FM107.5 as well as “Big Country Lunch” for a number of years.

Jim has been a member of the Technical Subcommittee and the Programming Subcommittee.

Jim says:

“Since my retirement from working in the telecommunications industry, I’ve been a member of OCB Inc. from 2007. I’ve also been actively involved in the station’s affairs over the years as a member of the Technical Subcommittee and the Programming Subcommittee, apart from my ongoing commitment as a presenter.

“My other interests include growing bonsai trees, enjoying model cars and producing delicious, spicy condiments.

“My programme, Time for a Break provides 3 hours of mostly Australian ‘country’ music, but I do like to include a mix of genres, from classical jazz and blues to ‘world’ music, all with a Christian background. Naturally, gospel music is also featured across the styles, and for a more local focus, new up-and-coming Australian artists and their music.”
