9 years ago, I sent a voice recording of myself talking about Britney Spears and fortune cookies to a man named Jamie Meldrum, a programme director at SPH radio. He said “you’ve got something”. Then he put a microphone in front of me.
Jamie has been the man behind my career. Every interview I’ve done through the years was through him giving the green light, pushing me out there, mentoring me. More than a boss, he has been a friend, sending me song recommendations of 90’s club hits from when he would DJ back in the day. When ‘All I Wanna Do’ came out, he championed it, sent it to his industry peers around the world, put it on air – he didn’t have to do that, he chose to. He has always chosen to do and be more. The man’s larger than life.
The last message he sent me was a thumbs-up emoji 👍🏻 He said he was proud of how the show was sounding, how he had some ideas to spice it up. He sent a reminder for me to finish my appraisal by Friday. Friday morning, he’s gone.
It is… a rare privilege to find that your cheerleader in the media industry, is your boss. He was a great man and I will miss him dearly. I took this photo of him a couple of years ago in front of a white wall at our office. He wanted a new profile pic for his Facebook after working so hard on his weight loss. He looked at the photo after and told me he really liked it. It was as if, for the first time in awhile, he could see that he was a handsome, beautiful man. And he is, always was. I didn’t think we’d be using that photo for this. I am absolutely shattered. Rest in peace bossman.
Shocked & deeply saddened to hear fellow Aussie & radio great @JamieRMeldrum has left us. Heartfelt sympathies to his family & the crew @Kiss92fm
