Planet Jazz With Tony

22:00Monday

22:00Monday

National music writer, musician and ABC regional radio broadcaster Tony Hillier has returned to the airwaves of Cairns FM89.1 – a station he once managed – to produce/present a new weekly program. “I initiated “Planet Jazz” to combine my favourite genres”, says Hillier, pointing out that since the genre’s early days, jazz players have coloured their musical canvasses from a global palette. “With the program, which features new releases each week along with classic blasts from the past, I endeavour to demonstrate that jazz is a broad and eclectic church. ‘Planet Jazz’ also features the only definitive gig guide to Cairns and environs”.

Ashleigh plays only Australian music on her show. She likes to give new artists a chance to have their music heard, but plays the odd ‘oldie but a goodie.’ Ashleigh has always had a great love of music. She is a lawyer by day and moonlights as an artist. She therefore appreciates other artists’ musical banquets. Eventually Ashleigh would like to do interviews and live studio performances. If you are an Australian artist and would like your original music played on Cairns FM89.1, please contact the station.
