Radio Career[edit]

Post began his career at the age of 15 as a radio broadcaster for Student Youth Network Media from 2003 to 2007.[5] It was from this, that Post began to work on The Hamish & Andy Show in the following year in 2008.

Hamish and Andy[edit]

Post was the panel operator for The Hamish & Andy Show from 2008 at Melbourne's Fox FM. He first joined the show in segments and comedic skits and became the permanent panel operator for the show in 2011 until its end in 2017. When Post started to appear on the show, he was affectionately given the nickname "Cacklin' Jack" by which he was often referred to as on-air.[6] Post still remains part of the Hamish & Andy Podcast in 2018.[7] He is noted among Hamish and Andy fans for having an incomplete house, being a bully and for playing a slow-style guitar.

Along with the radio show, Post made many appearances in The Comedy duo's TV shows. Post made Appearances as the show's butler in Hamish and Andy's Gap Year in 2011 and 2012. Post also made a Cameo in the 2nd episode of the 2nd season of True Story with Hamish & Andy.

Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show[edit]

As of June 2018, Post became the on-air sidekick to Christian O'Connell on The Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show on Melbourne's Gold 104.3.He was also the star of “Did he really say that ? by the Samster until January 2019 where Jack’s words of wisdom were replayed to the nation every Friday morning. He was also the writer of “Sing it for Melbourne” a rival to Midge Ure’s Vienna after Melbourne lost the best City on Earth title to Vienna. [8][9]

Music Career[edit]

Last Chance[edit]

In high school, Post was the lead guitarist for the punk-rock group Last Chance. Along with his band mates "Lewis" and "Fordy" they performed at school concerts, and most notably to a venue with the doors still closed. They had a strong political bent to their lyrics, with their biggest hit "Down with Bush" targeting US President George W Bush.

Their most famous performance was in the Frank Stallone "let me be frank with you tour" in which they were the warm up act, for American Rock-star Frank Stallone. The band reunited for the gig, and was the last concert they played as a band.[10]

Cool Boys and the Frontman[edit]

In 2016, the hosts of the The Hamish & Andy Show formed the band Cool Boys and the Frontman. This featured Jack Post on guitar, with Hamish Blake on drums and Andy Lee on keyboard and trumpet.[7] The Band performed two tours in two consecutive years, where the band only played one song at a pre-organised function. Post was criticised by Blake and Lee, after his lack of "stage presence" in the "halfway to the top tour" in 2016.

In the following year, Post was criticised again by Blake and Lee, after he turned up to rehearsals with a Yamaha guitar, which was referred to as "slow" by Blake.[11] Post later made up for this, with his performances in the tour.

It was in this same tour, where Post, Blake and Lee got small stylised "Band Tattoos" of each other. Blake and Lee both got tattoos of each other, and due to a previous argument, Lee refused to get a tattoo of a characterised version of Post. It was then when Post got his tattoo, that he got all 3 band members tattooed on his body. This Move was praised by the other band members including Lee.[12]
