“Time for a Break”
Jim Grocott has been a member of FM107.5 since 2007 and worked in the telecommunications industry before retiring.
Jim broadcasts Time for a Break on Thursdays between 2pm and 5pm 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.
As a committed member, Jim has been a member of the Technical Subcommittee and the Programming Subcommittee, plus regularly turning his hand to help at station fund-raisers.
“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 three 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.”
