Grew up in Scotland, Soul, Funk & Hip-hop was my first love but after moving to Edinburgh in the early 90’s got hooked on House music and started playing records. Always had a diverse taste for music, but everything I love has soul in there somewhere, whether it’s house, techno, disco, or whatever!
How did you become involved in the station?
Been a listener since I moved to Australia in 2006 from the UK, never heard radio like it. Although Radio 1 had specialty shows, you never got to hear music like you do on RTR all day long. Was hooked since then. Got to meet a few presenters over the years, and finally got myself onto the presenter’s course.
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

What is the best thing about being involved in the station?
Just being part of the place, being able to support and help out any way I can.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?
Last day of the presenter’s course and a Drivetime presenter walk in and asks if anyone knows anything about rock and roll as a presenter hasn’t turned up. One of the guys on the course jumps straight in and does the show! Legend!
If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?
Definitely Golden Apples, such wild music!
