Mel Tickle (aka “The Godfather of Groove”) presents “A Touch of Jazz” each Sunday fortnight 9pm to midnight.
The show presents jazz in all its various styles –early New Orleans mainstream/traditional, the smooth stylings of 60’s cool/bebop and the work of contemporary performers.
Mel’s has a deep musical heritage. All his family were all performers and appreciators. Growing up he was exposed to a broad range of musical styles, genres from classical, jazz, gospel, music hall, classic rock, pop, and soul and as such he is the quintessential Renaissance man/music lover – he is indeed – ‘A Man for All Music’.
Mel co-founded and still performs around South Australia in the busy “party music” trio “Groove Brothers and Soul Sister”.
The combination of performance experiences with over 30 years of public speaking training and presentations with Rostrum SA provides Mel with a strong skill base for radio presentation.
