Jerry presents Downtown on 3WBC

Jerry and his family arrived in Australia in 1968 when he was barely ten at which time his wide taste for Egyptian music stood, as it were, frozen still.

In Australia, we are now too privileged to have a modest but quite substantial number of home grown bands who share with us their great talent and their deep passion for the music of our roots.

Downtown, is about supporting, as best we can, community services, about nurturing young musical talents, about broadcasting Australian music and about giving a helping hand, or, a voice in this case, to all those who ask for it.

Downtown celebrates the innovative, imaginative musical composers founded the new upbeat music and it is upon those foundations that music today stands tall and proud and is still acutely recognizable, broadcasting on a weekly basis.  We may hear, perhaps, the faint echo of a tune that has been frozen in time inside the vast memory warehouse of our childhood and from that faint echo, be able to fast-forward to the new tunes that show us who we are today.

You would not be surprised to know that I also – like all other humans – endowed with two EARS one of them to drink (as Shakespeare would put it) from the Western Well and the other from the Eastern one. And so, it is from both these wells that the team draws their inspiration and the music they selects to play for their local community audience.
