The Lowedown

Tuesdays 9AM

Presented by Virginia Lowe

one of our presenters talking to the micro



Join me for an exciting and inspiring mix of great feels, fabulous voices, new, unusual and surprising interpretations, quality production and fine musicianship.  The genres of jazz, blues, soul and funk will be the meat and potatoes of this music.  There will be giveaways and the occasional surprise.

I sang professionally for over 20 years in Australia and the UK, encompassing various styles from jazz, blues, soul, rhythm ‘n’ blues, cabaret and musicals.  Even the odd pantomime…and it was odd!  Now I’m back in Australia, supporting this great community station and sharing the music I love with you.
