6:00am - 9:00am More Rhythm & Praise Gospel Music

Every Sunday morning from 6-9am Rhythm and Praise with Bernie is featured on KCR 102.5fm. Rhythm and Praise is KCR's leading religious programme, featuring gospel music, words of praise and modern Christian music. This is a programme that is relevant to Christians of all ages and backgrounds.

Bernie Maher Presenter

Bernie moved to Perth in 1983 but didn't find his way into broadcasting until 2006 when he started here on KCR on Boxing Day.

He recounts his most embarrassing moment on air was the day he was choking fit and with eyes watering he couldn't see the buttons to turn off the “on air” button!

A long way from the first musical influence - a Suzi Quatro album, which isn't even on his most favourite musical piece of all time, that honour goes to Mr. Tom Waits.

These days when not looking after his chooks, well most people don't count their eggs as pets! Bernie can be found here on a Sunday morning bringing us Christian music with 'rhythm and praise'. Bernie is a fan of world music and when asked what 5 people he would like to have dinner with named: Tom Waits, Nelson Mandela, Alvin Slaughter, Rueben Monsan and Bill Gates. 

9:00am - 12:30pm More Sunday Smorgasbord Mixed Variety of Music
Ray Collins Presenter

Ray would like to advise his listeners that he will be away from 12 June for approximately six weeks.

Like many of our presenters, Ray introduction into community radio had its beginnings in the country. Merredin and 6MD was Ray's training ground in 1970. That is not to say that Ray is a country lad! Ray is city born and bred - Subiaco to be precise. He still has close associations with Subiaco - he must be Subiaco Football Club's number one supporter. He is very passionate about his football and his team.

When not engaged with his passion for Aussie Rules or out walking the dog, Ray can be heard playing music from the 1950-1970's. His desire is to feature more music more often. He is especially passionate to focus on music for the 50-70 age groups. He believes that we should hear more music and less talk on the radio and that's how his program is styled. 

12.30pm - 1.00pm More Sunday Interlude No Category

Coral and Norman alternate in this program.

Coral Presenter

Coral advises her listeners that she will be away from 19 June until 9 July.

Coral began her association with KCR in the late 1990's behind the scenes, sorting the records out for the station. After brief stint away from the station, Coral then started presenting on the air. Although this wasn't Coral's first venture into the public music domain- that was as a member of a choir in the 1950's, the choir society's loss was community radio's gain.

A menagerie of animals (2 dogs, 1 budgie and 4 chooks) keep Coral busy along with a passion for roses, we can hear her program on Sundays (alternating) form 1-3pm

Coral describes her program - 'Music My Way With Coral' as varied musically specifically aimed at the Sunday afternoon listener, relaxing or new pieces with a leaning towards light classical and Irish, anything with a good melody.

12.30pm - 1.00pm More Sunday Interlude No Category

Coral and Norman alternate in this program.

Norman Campbell Presenter

Norman advises his listeners that he will be away from 20 June until 5 July.

Norman has had a very diverse career in broadcasting dating back to Japan in 1951 with the Australian Forces Broadcasting Service, to Africa and the nations of Kenya and around East Africa to the UK and stations Radio Swindon, Hallam, Norfolk and the famous Radio Caroline. Norman left the shores of England and arrived in sunny Perth in 1972.

Harking back to a military career one understands why Norman is passionate about discipline having had a formative role in his life.

Normans programme is best described as free and easy, 'a mixed bag of things best described as easy listening, lunchtime Sunday music where you provide the lunch and I provide the music'.

His most favourite song of all time might be yours, as it's the fabulous Mr. Nat King Cole, singing 'Too Young” which you might hear on “Free and Easy” Sundays from 1.00pm – 3.00pm.

Roger Presenter

Roger has been a presenter on KCR for about 18 months. He also worked many hours on getting the station up and running after its move. Although he had never previously been a presenter his involvement in recording began when he was a teenager in London a long time ago. He has always been interested in classical music and now has a very extensive collection of classical music written after 1900.

He is presenting a show - 20th Century Classical Music - every Sunday evening from 7.00 to 9.00 pm with music from well-known and less well-known composers written during that period. It’s a good way to end the weekend before the hassle of the work-week begins.
