Peter Zifovich (Zifo)

Now semi-retired, Peter has been a busy guy. A motor mechanic and TAFE teacher having spent 20 years at Campbelltown college. Married for nearly 40 years, Peter has 2 adult children and 3 wonderful grandchildren.

Growing up in regional NSW, he enjoyed local radio. Now he presents THE CAR PARK AFTER DARK each Tuesday 7pm til 9pm. No doubt about it .. Zifo knows his cars. He kicks some tyres and peeks under the bonnet with plenty of driving and maintenance tips to help you. Lots of motor sport news and views with great music from the 60’s til now. Pull up the handbrake this Tuesday night.

Gary’s Golden Memories: Monday 2pm til 4pm.

Gary Seymour has had extensive broadcast experience all his life. That’s why he can bring you two hours of wonderful music each Monday afternoon.

Born and raised in Bundaberg, Queensland, Gary was educated at Christian Brothers College and left school in 1963. Radio was on his mind and in his heart. A student at Jim Illife’s school of broadcasting gave him lots of experience in media. Next came the start of an exciting radio career in 1964 as an announcer with the Colour Radio Network 4LG Longreach and 4IP Brisbane. The rest ( as they say) was history for young Gary.

He has been employed as announcer/presenter at 2TM Tamworth, 4BU Bundaberg, 2MO Gunnedah, 2LM Lismore, and 2VM Moree. Moving to Sydney he connected with his city audience on 2KY and 2CH.

Community radio is also Gary’s passion and interest. In 1999, he started a 20 year on-air presence with 2SSR 99.7FM Sutherland Shire. In August 2019, he made the switch to ‘Sounds of Macarthur’. And we’re glad Gary Seymour did. Have a listen yourself. We think you’ll agree – his experience counts.

with LINA MILLER 9am until 1pm. Great musical memories with your requests.

For over 39 years, Lina has been involved in radio. And she loves it and enjoys the pleasure it brings to her many listeners. Many phone ‘The Sounds of Macarthur’ Saturday mornings on 4625.2768 to ask Lina for their favourite song. ‘Ive made many friends through radio and I enjoy meeting and speaking to my listeners’ she says.

Lina was born at St.Leonards and is of Maltese/Egyptian background. Her first job? Working with the CBA bank. But for most of her working life, she was a legal secretary. But wait – there’s more to Lina than you think.

Lina started an organisation for children with A.D.D. and learning difficulties, helped parents, and gave many talks to doctors, teachers and government officials for five years. Our remarkable radio announcer received an Australia Day award for her work with children suffering asthma. She started swimming classes to improve their health.

Why is Saturday mornings one of our most popular programs on 100.3FM? Let Lina have the last word: “Music brings people together. My listeners enjoy the memories it brings back. I try to bring a smile on their face with the banter between T.J. and myself“. Lina loves to hear from her listeners with their musical requests, and supplies local information from newspapers.

You can also catch Lina each Wednesday from 9am til 2pm with a great mix of music and interviews with local identities,


Ian Donaghy – a Life Member

Ian Donaghy is a true Macarthur local. He’s lived here since 1964 and has had a part in radio for 40 + years. Ian can recall 2CT, the first community radio station in Australia in Bow Bowing. In August 1989 he attended the inaugural meeting of 2MCR at Campbelltown Bowling Club.

Back then, there was not much happening in Sydney’s south west with radio – except the large commercial networks. For 15 years, Ian was secretary on the 2MCR board and was given life membership a few years ago. A huge honour!

Now hear Ian each Saturday morning 6am til 9am. But he arrives early at 5am to prep for his show selecting music, information, and local content. He says “I try to make the show bright and breezy as it is the start of the two best days of the week”. His regular listeners tune in every Saturday, and for Ian that makes it all worthwhile. Tune in yourself and feel enthused.

Ian’s wonderful wife of 36 years has been by his side all this time. They have four adult children and nine grandchildren. In his other life, Ian is a security manager NSW and ACT for a large Australian corporate company which keeps him very busy. He and his wife enjoy football ( meaning the Tigers), dining out, and travelling in our wonderful country and overseas.

Gordon Manning has given over 30 years service to community radio in Macarthur and Southern Highlands

Gordon Manning seems to have been on the radio forever. But not really. Gordon grew up in Toongabbie in the 1950’s ( yes, that far back). Educated at James Ruse high school and spent nearly all his life in the rail and road transport business.

Gordon took a keen interest in radio while living in the beautiful Southern Highlands . But when moving to Sydney in 1991, he joined 2MCR Macarthur as the classical music presenter. ( no, not all classical music is boring Gordon is quick to say). He is still behind the microphone doing what he loves most .. talking to you and sharing his love of music. Classical music means a lot to him – both now and in his past life. He grew up with this music in the family and liked it even as a boy. He also loved listening to radio and collecting a library of books on music and the great composers.

Today, Gordon proudly says he has amassed a great collection of CD’s and some vinyl recordings. He wanted to know more about the radio industry and gained considerable experience in announcing skills by attending courses from the Australian Radio and Television training school at Macquarie university.

So, what is Lunchtime Classics on 2MCR ? It’s not ‘high brow stuffy’ music to bore you …It’s Gordon’s collection of melodic melody. Or simply a musical miscellany for you if you are musically minded. Classic music for everyone.

Join Gordon Manning each Thursday after 12 noon AIR news for two hours of special music. He looks forward to your company and your comments. Phone him in the studio 4625 2768. He’s a very friendly radio guy!
