Max Ashley

Show: Phi In The Sky
Max comes from a background of Russian classical theatre, film, philosophy and literature, which has been mixed with a healthy dose of world travel, overseas living and foreign clubbing. Since returning to Oz Max has sought out answers to many of the existential questions that arise in our "topsy turvy" reality and gladly brings some of the findings to his show "Phi In The Sky", every Monday night at 2200 +9.30 GMT, while mixing in some thought encouraging electronic loungin', alternative acoustic or any other empowering music he has encountered during his travels.

Show: The Beautiful Music Collection
My name is Patrick Gorback, just Pat on air. I am host of The Beautiful Music Collection, which I present every Friday, between 9am and 12 noon which is prepared and recorded at home from my own collection, hence the name.
I am 65, a retiree. I have been involved with 5TGR for about 15 years, and have been on air for nearly 14 years, in the Friday morning timeslot. As well as presenting The Beautiful Music Collection, I do the odd fill-in. I also do a bit of Reception work at the station, on Mondays, 1-5pm, and also maintain the lawns, and perhaps the odd repair around the place.
