Joy Mirtschin

Having nursed in the public health system for almost 30 years, it was time to retire and spend time with my husband. Sadly he died and music and ONE FM became my salvation. My nights were spent listening to Presenters Pejay, Rae Matthews, Marj Jones and Alan Cox. I jumped at the invitation from Rae to become her phone lady overnight and enjoyed that time immensly. Manager Graeme Macartney asked if I was interested in co-ordinating a group of six Work for the Dole boys while they completed their training. Soon after, a phone call from Graeme started my time onair at ONE FM. Very nervously I presented my first program on May 10th 2003.

During the early years at ONE FM was when I met Pejay who was to become and is now my husband. We live 40kms from Shepparton, in the peaceful town of Nathalia where we take active roles in community organisations. I am a past member of the Committee of Management and during that time held the position of Secretary.

In 2011 I was honoured and privileged to be the recipient of a Life Membership of ONE FM. Many hours are spent searching for music and preparing my programs each week. The contact with our wonderful and devoted listeners and my love of music is what keep me coming back.
