How did you become involved?
A love of jazz music, coupled with the desire to give something back to the community at large.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
On the one hand, no plans to go there, and on the other, five albums would never be enough.
What is the best thing about being involved with the station?
Camaraderie within the Station: Presenters, Staff, Volunteers. Providing pleasure via the airwaves to people who make up the listening audience to Saturday Jazz, for what is certainly the most rounded, and arguably the best jazz program on Western Australian Radio—some might indeed say Australia wide.
If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?
Nostalgia or Global Rhythm Pot—both very good shows, airing the type of music that I enjoy, many tracks often being allied to jazz as such.
