DennisGedling

Dennis Gedling was born on 10 July 1856 to Serb parents in the village of Smiljan, Austrian Empire (modern-day Croatia). His father, Murray Gedling, was a priest of the Serbian Orthodox Church. Gedling’s mother, Kathleen, whose  father was also a Serbian Orthodox priest, had a talent for making home craft tools and for memorising many Serbian epic poems, even though she had never learned how to read. Gedling’s progenitors were from Western Serbia, near Montenegro…or was that the childhood of Nicklas Tesla…not sure.

How did you become involved?

I volunteered throughout the 90s whilst presenting radio elsewhere. I then got involved on-air in 2007 when I moved back to Perth and they needed someone to start up the late night rock show ‘Brain Blood Volume’, haven’t looked back since.

If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

  • You Am I-Hi Fi Way
  • Jeff Wayne’s Musical version of War of the Worlds (to get in with the locals)
  • The Who-Live at Leeds
  • The Pogues-Rum, Sodomy and the lash
  • Mudhoney-Superfuzz Bigmuff

What is the best thing about being involved with the station?

Being part of the best public radio station in Australia is the one of many reasons why it’s great to be involved. It’s the music played around the station and the feature albums, it’s the listeners, it’s the events, it’a the talk on-air, it’s the opportunity to present and play music I love for people, it’s talking to some artists you could consider your heroes… it’s everything!

What is the strangest thing that has happened to you in the RTRFM studio?

Apart from the time a rather popular late night electronic show tried getting the transmission tower struck by lightning around 1999 there are too many to mention from the old UWA days…that’s all I’ll say.

If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?

The shows I would want to present would require me getting an encyclopaedic knowledge of music considering the shows would be Soul Sides, Rock, Rattle and Roll or Sunday Morning Coming Down.

What do you do in real life?

Write for the Footy Almanac, work with stats, roll D20, procrastinate.
