Nicole Jones, host of Monday nights beloved ‘Local and/or General’. This is a program that brought to the rrr community quality, new Australian (and NZ) music program focusing on local emerging artists, with interviews, live in-studio performances and regular guests. Jones is imbedded in the rich Melbourne Music scene and often brought a unique twist to interviews and introductions of her musical guest, which was loved by her large listener fan base.
Jones started out as a volunteer at RRR, taking on graveyard shifts when possible. She soon teamed up with Luke Pocock (current presenter of Set it Out) for a show called ‘Bad Crumbs’. The two started hosting L & /O.G together, before she took hold of the wheel as a solo presenter.
After 3 years of Local and/ or General, Jones is taking her records on an overseas adventures. She will be greatly missed by all and look forward to hearing her voice on the RRR sound waves upon her return.
