Making Tracks with special guest host Mawunyo Gbogbo

16 June 2022

Mawunyo Gbogbo joined Munk on our drive show Making Tracks as a guest host yarning about her new book Hip Hop & Hymns. #hiphopandhymns

Mawunyo is a music & pop culture reporter for Double J and ABC News. You can follow her on Twitter @MawunyoGbogbo @HipHopandHymns.

If you weren’t listening to Making Tracks with Munk recently between 3 and 6 pm you missed a great episode of our drive-time show. Listeners could hear there was massive mutual respect between guest co-host Mawunyo and Making Tracks host Munk. The co-host for that day has written her memoir Hip Hop and Hymns.

This Making Track episode was a significant listener hit where the award-winning Making Tracks broadcaster and music producer Munk spoke about how he is “not at the moment an avid book reader” (too busy with broadcasting, music, art, producing, etc I presume) – but that he “couldn’t put Hip Hop and Rhythms down” and read it in one day! The book even took over his important NRL game match viewing, only glancing at the game every now and again for a scoreboard update.

Thanks for dropping by Mawunyo and come back anytime.

Check out some info on Mawunyo below and take a walk into your local bookshop and see if it’s there!

Mawunyo worked as a journalist for ABC NewsRadio; a features reporter and producer for ABC Radio Sydney; a segment producer for the Today show on the Nine Network; and an associate producer for Insight on SBS TV, where she won a UN Media Peace Award.

Mawunyo was born in Ghana, raised in Muswellbrook in the NSW Hunter Valley, and now calls Sydney home.”
