Sharing music with the community is a great way to give back by volunteering.

Born in Northern Ireland, and migrating to Australia at the age of three, we know he's Australian at heart.  Growing up in East Fremantle, WA, before moving to Port Melbourne & South Melbourne, and attending Geelong Grammar School & Timbertop, John has called Mansfield his home since 1981.

Working as an industrial chemist was a bit and not as exciting as talking with people so he moved into sales, leading to starting up a steel shelving business, working throughout Australia with his work leading him to be Operations Manager of Mt Stirling Alpine Resort.  

His first taste of radio was starting at the radio station in March, 2004, presenting the "John & Vicki Show' with Vicki Cripps. Over the years, John has been pretty busy presenting other shows including  "Afternoon Coffey" (Only he can get away with that cool name) "No Wonder We Hate Mondays" and now, co-hosts "The Vicki & John Show" Tuesdays 9am to 11am with Vicki Grange (nee Cripps) and "Walk the Line" Mondays 7am to 9am, proudly broadcasted through Mansfield and UGFM.

John has held various positions in the station’s committee over many years including President, Vice President and Treasurer. His business and volunteer experience has been a great asset to the station. He also has a Certificate ll in Broadcasting.
