A jazz lover since later school years (on and off). Lived in Perth since 1990, having moved here from Sydney. Early school years spent in NSW country towns of Kandos and Mudgee (before the wine boom unfortunately). Worked in Sydney in the film industry and theatres for some years before moving to work for CTC TV in Canberra. Before moving to Perth spent a number of years teaching at Macquarie University in Sydney. Now consider myself a West Australian.

How did you become involved?

Being a regular listener to Saturday Jazz for many years, I made contact with the then presenter Brian Davis when I was able to lend him a rare LP of Oscar Peterson singing. Frequent contact followed and when Brian decided to give up presenting in August 2004, he put my name forward as a replacement.

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

  • Oscar Peterson – At the Stratford Shakespearean Festival
  • Oscar Peterson – Canadiana Suite
  • Count Basie – Complete Atomic Basie
  • Len Barnard – Jazzways
  • Complete Beyond the Fringe

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

Being able to share with others my love of jazz, in its many forms and the stories of its many contributors and looking for and finding new and unusual recordings. Being able to enjoy listening to, and help promote, the many talented local jazz musicians

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

Some of the phone calls received during the program.

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

I’m more than happy sticking to jazz.

What do you do in real life?

Retired academic, having recently lectured in Economics at Curtin University for a few years.
