I asked Steve "Grumpy" Collins (Executive Producer to the Stars) to take a couple of shots this morning while I was doing Weekend Breakfast on 882 6PR.
I’m still not sure why I have such a passion for broadcasting – but it’s something that has been with me since 1989 when I got my first gig at 1080am – The Eagle. Admittedly little more than a Cart Boy, there was something about radio that pressed my buttons.
I love the immediacy. I love the LIVE aspect of radio. It’s flying by the seat of your pants with so many things capable of going wrong. It really is an adrenalin rush.
I think talkback radio is especially challenging. You never know if you’re going to get callers – and if you do, you don’t know who they are (or if they are who they say they are). You never know what they’re going to say. The Dump Button is always in mind!
I look forward to the weekend shifts at 6PR – they leave me feeling like I’ve walked a tightrope and made it to the other side.
What’s your passion?
