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
