Jon von Goes – Broadcaster

Jon von Goes 3RRR desk

I present the JVG Radio Method on RRR 102.7 FM in Melbourne from 2 til 4 on Sunday afternoons. I’ve been hosting this show for many years. Many.

It started as 2 hours of thematically related recorded music selections. Over time it’s become a lot more than that—a lot of live music, talk, poetry and recorded music.

Then Covid came along and changed it some more. I couldn’t have anyone in the studio, so I got people to call in and send me computer files of music. Enforced change can be a good thing if you go with it.

The show has never been better. My incredibly talented cohort of contributors makes my weekly couple of hours behind the mic an honour and a pleasure.

Regulars include Ian Bland, Kerri Simpson, Charles Jenkins, Davey Lane, Dr Pump, Angie Hart and Emma Heeney, Barb Waters and Craig Pilkington, Dave Evans, Sarah Carroll and other irregular guests make for great radio that I get to steer.

I get afforded great freedom as a broadcaster at RRR. I can say and play just about anything I want. They’re gonna have to wheel me out of there.
