What’s your program?
The Smash Hits
A step back in time to when the hair was long and the make-up was wild (and that’s just the male artists!).
Abba to ZZ Top and everything in between.
How did you get involved?
I work with Nathan at Arid Recovery who has a show. He suggested I come and join him for a show. I am not sure I ever agreed to join him but instead decided to give it a go on my own.
What do you love about doing the Smash Hits Radio Show?
I have learnt so much about music I took for granted.
You often hear people say that the 80s is not their favourite era for music but then a record comes on and everyone is up and dancing.
I have been looking into the different styles of music and tracing the history of the songs and artists and it really is fascinating.
I won’t please everyone with the music I play but I like to think people are tapping their toes while they listen.
What kind of music do you play on your show?
I focus on the music of the 80s decade, playing everything from pop, rock, R&B and Ska to name a few.
I have been known to sneak in the odd song out of the era (you just have to be able to link it to the 80s – artist born / movie playing).
If the music is lively and you can dance and sing along it will probably be featured in my show.
You will hear lots of Aussie Pub Rock because it is a favourite of mine but hopefully I play a fair mix of genres to please a wide audience.
Do you do anything else at the station?
I have accepted the position as Treasurer on the RoxFM board.
The position was a good fit for my skills and I am looking forward to watching the station grow as a social community space.
We all need to show our support so we don’t lose our only local media outlet.
My first job is to get some coffee mornings going for presenters, members and sponsors.
