Addam Stobbs Award for Broadcasting Excellence

The JOY board is pleased to announce the award recipient is:

Saturday Magazine

Tass Mousaferiadis & Melinda Rich

The award reflects the significant contribution this program has made to JOY in a year when advocacy was so crucial to support our community through a divisive debate over marriage equality.  Saturday Magazine not only reports on news relevant to our community, but it generates thoughtful and considered debate and conversation on issues that matter to us. It is also regularly amongst the most downloaded JOY podcasts, reflecting that it is a ‘go to’ program for our listeners seeking to stay connected with happenings in our community. The program’s level of engagement with political, community, commercial, and cultural leaders has never been higher and more respected. Its excellence in programming reminds us that JOY serves as a strong voice to uplift, inform and empower our community.

Congratulations to Macca, Tass, Fiona, Paul and the entire team that delivers Saturday Magazine.

Anne Hamilton Award for Volunteering Excellence

The JOY Board is pleased to announce the award recipient is:

Pete Holmes

Tennille Moisel, Pete Holmes, Anne Hamilton

Pete has been a volunteer since April 2017 and is currently the JOY Podcast Coordinator. Podcasting is an increasingly important channel for JOY as we seek to broaden our reach and impact, giving our listener the choice to listen to our content at a time and place that suits them. Having a committed and dedicated volunteer like Pete coordinating JOY’s podcasts help us achieve our aspirations in this space. Since moving into the Podcast Coordinator role, Pete has established a strong team of more than 40 podcasters, and he has taken the lead on setting up training for new podcasters. He actively recruits podcasters for shows requesting podcast support, and has also built robust reporting for our podcast service, ensuring we can track how our podcasts  perform. Pete is also incredibly friendly and is very enthusiastic about JOY, always offering to help where he can.

Congratulations Pete.

Mike from Balwyn is a loyal JOY Member.
He also made to the switch to solar power with ☀Sologistics.
We chatted to Mike to hear his story:

Just your regular suburban Balwyn family: Mark, Anni and Mike

How did you first hear about ☀Sologistics?
I have heard their ads on the JOY Breakfast shows many times.
What interested you in ☀solar power?
To stop my partner Mark from rabbiting on about installing solar power at home and it worked (he is onto soft furnishings now).
How has your household improved since your switch to solar power with ☀Sologistics?
Aside from the obvious reduction in power costs, we have become more aware of our power usage.
The Sologistics team provided good education on how to best match usage to the available sunshine.
The solar panels are therefore producing all the energy the household needs with no drawing power from the grid.
Additionally, through their online app there is a live feed of data from the panels on the roof  giving you a very clear picture of power production and usage, which ticks all the boxes for this bean counter.
What is your favourite Breakfast show(s) on JOY?
Reluctant to nominate as all the presenters are wonderful volunteers who give up their time freely. However if I must, The The G Spot with Gillian & Clare on Friday, Tom & Warren on Thursday are whilst I am driving to work.
What is your favourite song in Melbourne’s most uplifting Music Mix? 
Anything from the 80s. The Cher prize giveaway has been great (who doesn’t love If I Could Turn Back Time with all those able seamen in the background?!).
On a more contemporary note, anything by Sia.

Sologistics

☀Sologistics is proud sponsor of 🍳JOY Breakfast with an unbelievable solar rebate available right now but only the first 24,000 households will get it.
You can get all of the solar you need for your home for as little as $2500!

JOY PRESENTS: The Miseducation of Cameron Post
6.45pm Tuesday 4 September at Cinema Nova

Cameron Post (Chloë Grace Moretz) looks the part of a perfect high school girl. But after she’s caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night, Cameron is quickly shipped off to a conversion therapy center that treats teens “struggling with same-sex attraction.”

At the facility, Cameron is subjected to outlandish discipline, dubious “de-gaying” methods, and earnest Christian rock songs – but this unusual setting also provides her with an unlikely gay community. For the first time, Cameron connects with peers, and she’s able to find her place among fellow outcasts.

Writer/director Desiree Akhavan (Appropriate Behavior) and co-writer Cecilia Frugiuele sensitively adapt Emily Danforth’s acclaimed eponymous coming-of-age novel and create a refreshingly original teen movie. Balancing out inherent drama with understated humour, THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST looks at a teenage girl grappling with pain and loss, but at the same time, she is creating a family on her own terms and learning what it means to empower herself by having confidence in her own identity.
