Show Description

Radio 3ZZZ – German Group

Uwe Jacobs

Since mid 2018, Uwe is the convenor of the German Broadcasting Team. Together with Peter Reiprich he is on air every second Monday of the month from 7 to 8 pm. The show is known for its mixed music, from oldies to the latest hits. As Uwe loves to cook, he is always happy to share his latest recipe while Peter likes to keep everyone updated on the soccer ground. Their show doesn’t follow one topic in particular, but they’re always on the lookout to provide happy and positive content. It’s definitely worth tuning in!

Die Wellenreiter – Angie, Nadia und Karin

Angi, Nadja and (occasionally) Karin are ‘The Surfers on your Wavelength’, on air on the first Tuesday night of every month, and easily recognized by their intro song ’Die Wellenreiter’ ('The Surfers') by Sportfreunde Stiller. They may have started out some 15 years ago as the 'youth show', but even now, they present a program that is fun and aimed firmly at the young at heart! Their favourite topics are not only movie and book reviews, but also the latest events in Germany and Melbourne, plus intriguing guests and interviews, and any quirky news from the German-speaking world that they can find! And it's all interspersed with a broad range of German-language music - from pop to alternative, through folk-rock, rap and right out there to songs sung in dialects, Swiss-German and Austrian. Get on board with the Surfers!

Rudi Vanderstraeten

Rudi joined the German broadcasting team in 2014. He is on air every third Thursday, alternating with Siegfried and Wolfgang, at 10:00am where he brings you news from the German clubs in and around Melbourne. Being born in Nuremberg, Bavaria, you can look forward to traditional and classic music mixed with a few modern touches. It’s best to tune in yourself!

All about Life with Inci Kaylan, Florienne Loder, Christoph Dielmann

Inci, Florienne and Christoph have joined the German broadcasting team in 2018. However, Christoph is not really new to us. As the pastor of the German Lutheran Church in Melbourne, we are sure many of our German listeners will know him. In their show “All about life” there is nothing what they won’t talk about. Life topics from the cradle to the grave are served here friendly and easy. Listen to modern German music. It´s interactive: every topic can also be talked about in a special German discussion group. Make sure you tune in and listen every second Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm.

Wolfgang Zopf

Wolfgang joined the German Broadcasting Team at 3ZZZ over eight years ago. He loves to play music from the ‘50s to the ‘90s combined with a few hits from today. However, you can always call in to suggest a song – he tries to accommodate your music wishes as much as possible. In Wolfgang’s show you will quite likely learn about the automotive industry, the environment combined with the movement towards sustainability, what’s going on in the sports world, and what events you should not miss! Tune in when he is on air every third Thursday at 10:00am – Dieter Schwab from the German Club Tivoli is a regular co-host in Wofgang’s show!

Johanna Schick

Johanna joined the German Broadcasting Team in 2018. She only moved to Melbourne permanently mid of 2016 to complete her Business degree in Marketing, after falling in love with the Australian culture during her Au Pair time in 2012/13. Journalism and media have been a dream career for her since her teenage years and after she could gain insights into the radio world in Germany, this medium really sparked her interest even more. Johanna is on air every third Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm and will talk about everything related to business, marketing, ethics, sustainability and personal development. Most of the times, she is accompanied by an interview guest. Being the ‘young one’ in the team, it’s no surprise that she mainly plays modern music – but don’t be too surprised if you hear some traditional rhythms in between – playing the flute in a traditional music group for 10 years has broadened her mind when it comes to German music…

Bernd Merkel

Bernd joined the German broadcasting Team at 3ZZZ in 2017. His biggest passion is any kind of sport, in particular soccer and the Australian A-League, where he often interviews German players and coaches. He also has a background in Neuroscience (Alzheimer, Multiple Sclerosis), but loves to have guests in the show to talk about all different topics in life. His preferred music is both modern and 80s-90s, he is also a soccer expert for SBS and has a weekly TV show on channel 31 (Melbourne, Geelong).

Alexander Murer

Alexander has been part of the German broadcasting team at 3ZZZ since 2011. As a true-born Austrian there is not much about music he doesn’t know. This also shows in his show where he plays everything from classic to jazz to pop and rock. His shows mostly follow a certain topic, whether that’s a new movie, a new musician, a current event or even an interview partner. Alexander’s shows are rich in variety and always a good choice to listen to! He is well connected in the German community around Melbourne and always up to date with the cultural happenings in town. Tune in every 4th Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm.

Siegfried Sundermann

Siggi certainly has the gift of the gab and is always joking around – that is what he is known for, apart from riding a motorcycle! Since 1993 he amuses listeners every third Thursday morning with the German Club News. As deputy convenor he is an immense help to Uwe Jacobs.

Gary Rosch

Gary Rosch is on air every third Monday of the month!

Peter Reiprich

Every second Monday of the month, Peter is on air with Uwe Jacobs.

Erika and Joachim Raschke

Everyone who has followed the German Broadcasting Team previously has heard of Erika and Joachim. Since 2011 they are part of the team. While they are now enjoying their retirement, they help out whenever we need a fill-in. They might not be on air regularly anymore, but you will hear them every once in a while. Tune in to find out more!
