August 11, 2017 Philton

Philton has been a poet and publisher of literature for many years on the Melbourne scene. He has more recently moved to the Mornington Peninsula where, in addition to the foregoing, he has been active in establishing the Rhonda Jankovic Society to encourage the expression of social justice through literature (the late Rhonda Jankovic being the founder of the Spoken Word programme on 3CR and a long time station stalwart and social justice advocate). Philton's own poetry also comes from a social justice perspective and is, furthermore, imbued with a gentle humour and subtle writing style. A former newsreader on this station, his rich deep bass reciting voice is made for radio.
