How did you get into radio?
I completed a radio course, and wrote to all stations in Brisbane saying I’d work for them for free. The first to respond was 4BH, and programmer Graham Rigby. He spotted a bargain!

Which famous people have you met / interviewed and who did you like / dislike?

It’s the station that gave me my start in radio 20 odd years ago. Great people here too.

I turn up the monitors and listen to them. Otherwise, I prepare my next chat or take phone calls.

I wanted to be an AFL star, or believe it or not, a radio announcer.
If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
My inate ability to consistently embarrass myself.

Happy Birthday. I assume it is a Birthday Party if it’s in my honour.
Who would you like to meet (past / present)?
I’d like to meet Sir Paul McCartney to discuss song writing, get guitar lessons from Hank B Marvin or Eric Clapton, or sit at a dinner party with Ron Barassi, Leigh Matthews and Kevin Sheedy to talk footy.
