I think I got into music listening to Mum and Dad’s Horst Jankowski records. This was a time when houses in Perth had cocktail cabinets or bars, and my exotic parents smoked Sobranie Black Russian cigarettes on a Friday and Saturday night. My first vinyl record was Tubular Bells – the one with the original Virgin naked girl and dragon logo on the record label. As they were just never played on the radio I bought Ommadawn and Hergest Ridge … and I guess I started collecting records…

How did you become involved?

Hanging out in the studio a lon time ago during the legendary Catch The Beat radio show with Curtis J Brown on 6NR, Round Midnight on 6UVSFM and then Black and Blue…

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

Too hard! There are a few songs across the decades that I do hope will never be used in car ads – I‘m talking about:

  • Lee Hazelwood – My Autumns Done Come
  • Broadcast – Before We Begin
  • Nick Drake – Northern Star
  • Odyssey – Our Lives Are Shaped By What We Love
  • Wild Cookie – Heroine

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

RTR is a big part of what makes Perth a great place and where I always hear amazing local music – nowhere else….

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

Many strange things happen late in the evening at the RTRFM studios – listening between midnight and dawn can always amaze…

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

I am very lucky as I already get to present three wildly different shows … I think I could be very at home exploring the roots and evolution of disco on Disco Science.

What do you do in real life?

IT geek.
