JOY Music Mix
Melbourne's most uplifting music mix weekdays
Presented by The JOY weekday crew
Melbourne's Most uplifting music mix weekdays.
JOY 94.9 strives to bring you Melbourne's most uplifting music mix, for your working day.
Our breakfast and drive shows and right across our week day is filled with a blend of uplifting, upbeat pop, R&B, remixes and vocal dance sourced from all corners of the world.
We'll mix the best of what you might be hearing elsewhere, with something you won't hear anywhere else and we'll throw in a classic from the 70s, 80s, 90s and the naughties as well.
We'll make sure you're hearing lots of new music during the day, keeping you up to date with many of your favourite artists and many more you'll want to get to know.
The 'sound' your hear is pulled together by our Music Director, Chris Jameson, keeping all these things in mind and ensuring we meet the criteria set out by our own music policy.
You can check out all the music added to the weekday music mix by following our music blog.
Specialist music shows for every taste
Our specialty music programs across the schedule showcase everything from country, urban, jazz and alternative through to world music, acoustic, classical and folk.
Check out the current program grid for details of what and when these shows air.
