Uplifting music for challenging times: a playlist just for you

If anyone knows music, it’s DJ Nige. The popular Gippsland DJ has been spinning the tunes at parties, functions and events across Victoria and NSW for many years and, Covid-19 aside, is currently more popular than ever. Nigel Beck can come up with a playlist for any occasion from his vast music knowledge and library.

So with time on his hands from the temporary government ban on public events, Gippsland Goodness invited DJ Nige to come up with a Goodness playlist to brighten our day – whether listening at home, in the car or while out exercising. Nige’s playlist has four hours of uplifting songs from across the decades, ranging from The Beatles to Destiny’s Child and many gems in between – artists like Bruce Springsteen, Mental As Anything, Seals & Crofts, Neil Sedaka and Men at Work.
