Imagine waking up in the morning to Gary Jon. Well, it’s not a pleasure exclusive to his wife as you can do the same every Saturday!
Gary Jon has been speaking to the radio listening masses and playing songs from his ‘obsessive record collection’ for over a decade now, with stints at TCR FM (later Radio Tamworth), Ripple FM in Auckland, New Zealand, and two stints at NCB Radio. We know, we missed him so much we invited him back.
Not only do you get to wake up to Gary, but you also get to have breakfast with him too, and like in any good budget hotel chain, breakfast is available for four hours.
Within those four hours, you won’t get the same old – for every song is so diverse it doesn’t need a committee to decide how to make it so and so varied that you’ll discover things you’d forgotten you ever listened to.
He still plays Cliff Richard. He also plays music as diverse as Roxy Music, Half Man Half Biscuit, Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, Woody Guthrie, Miles Davis, OMD, and The Fall. There is usually at least one song in French and sometimes South Korean and Welsh music (NB the certificate he has to write in Welsh does not demonstrate an ability to speak Welsh). Plus a fair bit of New Music often from Australia.
If that wasn’t enough, there’s also the weather for Cornwall and tide times for Port Isaac.
