Jason was a highly valued member of the 3MDR family since joining the radio station in 2001. The Club Show was a Monday evening favourite for many listeners as Jason, along with a number of co-hosts over the years, played a mix of Australian and international club artists from the 70s, 80s and 90s. Jason’s passion for the genre extended beyond broadcasting on radio and, as DJ Red, he touched the hearts of many club and dance music lovers at parties, functions and clubs.
Monday nights will never be the same on 3MDR. Jason and his good friend Dazmo (pictured below at 3MDR's 30th Anniversary Gala Ball 2015) presented back to back programs for many years on 97.1fm with The Club Show leading into The Late Night Shenanigans each week.
Jason first stepped into the wonderful world of community broadcasting in 1997 at a station called CITY-FM. This station missed out on a permanent broadcasting licence and Jason then became a member of 3MDR to continue his passion for broadcasting.
Since joining 3MDR, aside from presenting a weekly program, Jason was actively involved in many aspects of the operations assisting with production work, sourcing and installing equipment, website maintenance and Community Service Announcements. Always willing to help out around the station, Jason was a warm and welcoming member of the organisation and will be missed greatly by his family, friends, fellow presenters, listeners and members of community radio 3MDR.
Long time friend, Dazmo, will be honouring Jason’s contributions to community radio 3MDR with a special tribute show on Monday 14th January from 8:00pm.
3MDR extends its deepest sympathies to Jason’s family at this sad time.
