Josh Olek joins Drive on K rock

Former Assistant Editor

Oz Made host Josh Olek has landed a new gig as the co-host of K rock 95.5 Drive.

Josh, who won the 2018 ACRA for Best Music Presenter (Provincial), has worked at K rock for three years now and is excited to be co-hosting The Departure Lounge with Leanne ‘Stampsy’ Stamps.

“Stoked to be chatting for longer than 16 seconds at a time every four songs,” he said.

“And doubly stoked to get to hang out with a bloody legend in Stampsy every arvo.

“Geelong and the Surf Coast has welcomed me with open arms, and I can’t wait to drive all of these incredible human beings home!”

“It’s a natural progression for us; we already sit next to each other, buy each other coffee and laugh over Facebook memes,” added Stampsy.

“Josh will be the nerd-burger yin to my clumsy yang. I’ll talk cocktails while he explains Nintendo’s latest release. Just hope the studio soundproofing can withstand our laughter.”

K rock’s new Drive lineup with kick off from Tuesday.

“Josh will be stepping into what is already a very well run drive product,” said content director James Speed.

“The show is a fun, entertaining and really local program that engages our audience

“I’m looking forward to hearing Stampsy and Josh on air together; both extremely dedicated radio people who will put 100 percent into creating cut-through radio and big moments.

“K rock 95.5 remains one of a few regional stations with a local breakfast and drive  show entertaining our market as they start and end the day.”

I’m honestly surprised there aren’t more stories about our lord and saviour, Josh Of House Olek. He is the son and the heir of this industry.

It’s ironic that Josh is driving other people home considering he went out for a pack cigarettes in 1996 and still hasn’t come back.

I just want to learn how to throw a ball dad.
