Who's the best music jock in Australia? Melbourne

Radio Today continue the search for Australia's Best Music Jock.

The winner in Brisbane was Pete Curulli - see here.

We're working our way through each capital city and want you to vote on which weekday, daytime music jock you think is the best. It's whatever you believe makes them 'the best', let's not overthink this. It's just supposed to be a bit of fun.

For the next 2 days you're voting for Melbourne then we'll move onto Sydney.

Then we'll take the 5 winners and get you to vote, with one person to be crowned 'Australia's Best Music Jock'.

It’s mate against mate, network against network, who’s going to be triumphant and take home the coveted (only slightly shithouse) namebadge ?

Voting has closed for Melbourne. See the result here.

Note - we have only included stations that are part of the Nielsen survey. They appear in the order of station ranking (10+) and then shift order. We will include triple j jocks in Sydney's poll.

Ummm guys... no one from Easy Listening station 1377 am My MP on your list.

Think someone slipped up!

The Music Man - there is a note on the article that says...'we have only included stations that are part of the Nielsen survey. They appear in the order of station ranking (10+) and then shift order.'

Maybe we could expand it to include all stations next time.

Cathy Dinn... best by far!

Wow. Tim Lee - who only just left the station yet no Simon Diaz - who also just left the station (and allegedly is still on in Melbourne on Smooth unlike Lee) so just a little bit of bias there, wouldn't you say?

Damn! Wish I could vote more than once! Some great talent in Melbourne!

Tim Lee

These guys are my top 4 in no particular order.

Special mention to Kelli Paun, I know she is good but haven't listened to her shift enough.

Hi Bugalugs.

No bias whatsoever.

Simon left a month ago. Tim Lee left on Friday. When we put together the lists over a week ago we decided we would include current jocks or those that have only just left (1 or 2 weeks).

Simon may be doing work on Smooth but as he isn't part of the main workday lineup he wasn't included for that station.

I'd probably go for the 'turntable slave' out of this horrible lot, as he sounds like jamie angel a little bit. Got me wondering about Aaron Chilcott though, as I haven't listened to him before.
