Presenting

I Grew up in England in the 1960’s, my dad was a music lover and would purchase readers digest box sets of lps, thats were I get my love of the Music of the 30′ 40’s and fifties.  We came to Perth in  1974,  i remember listening to UVSFM as a teenager never knowing I would be putting shows to air in my mid fifties

How did you become involved in the station?

There was a call out for new presenters on the Nostalgia, I had been a fan of the show for years, and thought to myself “Why not give it a go” Richard Leslie & Reg Brearly  were gracious enough to train me on air

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

  • Ziggy Stardust – David Bowie
  • For Your Pleasure – Roxy Music
  • Beverly Kenney – Sings for playboys
  • Cocktail Capers – Ultra lounge
  • Pennies From Heaven – Tv Soundtrack

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

Its really nice to share some of the music that i love, Nostalgia has been on Air for over 20 years, and has a lot of loyal listeners.  I love the atmosphere around Radiothon too.

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

One morning when i was being trained we had a “Glich” and the winamp kicked in, we were broadcasting “Punk” to a very surprised “Nostalgia” audience. we had to get the station manager out of bed on a freezing winter morning

If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?

Sunday morning coming down, it follows on from Nostalgia, at 9.00 am and I always listen to it on my way home

What do you do in real life?

I work in an office, banging out letters on a typewriter, and making sure there is a enough ink in the mimeograph, and that all the ashtrays on desks are emptied daily
