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”.

Off The Beaten Tracks

10:00Wednesday

10:00Wednesday

So much of what gets recorded never gets heard on commercial radio, but this program atones for this for a couple of hours every weeks. Unplayed B sides - often where the artist really lets themselves loose with something a bit risky in the marketplace as an a side - overlooked album tracks, songs that were hits but have been lost in the mists of time, and songs that never were hits at all - there's millions of them out there and every week I spotlight a few that have not had their due. Just as long as I think that they will engage the listener on the first hearing of songs that have not been played to death, but are played only on Off the Beaten Tracks.

The Retro 40 looks at music over 40 years of music. We take a chart on a particular year and listen to who made the top of the charts in that year. Take the trip down memory lane and listen to the Retro 40 with Daran Murphy. ABOUT DARAN MURPHY: Daran spent over 35 years as a broadcaster and now a teacher based in the beautiful city of Cairns. I have been collecting and researching music since I was six years old and have always found that living is just not living without music. I thoroughly enjoy listening to Rock classics, pop 60, 70, 80’s and 90’s and love presenting a music history show where we talk about who made the top of the charts in those years. Daran started his radio journey at Radio 10 in Brisbane in 1984 and worked his way up and down the coast. In 2013, he finished his career in Melbourne assisting in the early days on Digital broadcasting. Daran has also spent time working in stations overseas including New York, London, Canada and The Phillipines.
