Jo “Buzz” Merriman
I grew up in Warrnambool, and in the era of incredible live music [80’s], at pubs such as the Lady Bay, Criterion plus others and at Uni, WIAE. Moved to Melbourne in 1986 and continued to see live bands all over the city. Mainly pubs and jazz bars such as Bennetts Lane, Black Cat and Night Cat [I guess I was one!] and lived in St Kilda for 7 years and had the Espy as my local and saw many great Australian musicians and comedians appear there. I feel very lucky to be on ‘POTP’ with Bill, and to be able to contribute my journey with music to the show. I have also loved interviewing many local musicians and artists and will promote local talent as much as possible. It is great fun and fantastic to share this with the local community.
