Hosted by Jonathan Lindsay-Tjapaltjarri Hermawan (Jonzy), each week Jam Pakt is one-hour jam packed with music, yarns, special guests and hot topics for people all over Australia, all whilst giving mob a strong voice on the things that matter to them.
Available over three parts, the show is heard on countless community radio stations, is available through the CBAA Community Radio Network and is easily adaptable to any program grid.
Jonzy says, “Jam Pakt is literally the equivalent of sitting down for a yarn with me around an ice-cold Territory’s own Paul’s Iced Coffee, but on radio! There’ll be jokes and laughter, there’ll be music, there’ll be serious and not-so-serious yarns and there’ll be strong and proud First Nations voices… and you’ll hopefully be left with a good feeling about life.”
“I’d never hosted or recorded stuff for radio, and I certainly didn’t think I’d ever have my own show, let alone nail 100 episodes.
I mean, I can barely sit down for a trilogy movie or series let alone count beyond 3 – coz in the bush, after you spot more than 3 kangaroos it’s just “biggest mob feed time”!
“So it’s the same with the show, I guess – I got through the first 3 and now I’ve recorded biggest mob.”
