Jumping The Gap


parisJumping The Gap is a weekly, 2-hour journey with selector Paris leaping between disco, psych-funk, Afro, soul, dub-reggae, Eastern freak-beats, soundtracks, free-jazz and more. From themed specials, to old-school mix-ups, your only guide-rope is 'groove'.

For much of the past two decades, your host Paris Pompor has been eeking out a living as a freelance music journo, currently with the Sydney Morning Herald, whilst also running the Groovescoooter label. The label began as a radio show on Sydney's Eastside FM back in 1997 (continuing to this day) and in betwixt, Paris has also presented shows on SBS (Alchemy) and FBi (The Album Show). Way before that, as a teenager Canberra's 2XX turned him on to great music and a passion for community radio took hold. Later there was a punk group willing to endure his "singing", an '80s band to found on the back of a few monophonic synth lines, post-punk bands to slap bass in, and other money-losing hair-brained pursuits. He still produces music - though more sporadically these days - and DJs in Sydney clubs.
