What was your first job?
An insurance clerk in sixties Melbourne. Memories: a lot of very funny blokes, learning to drink and an abundance of miniskirts (there were two typing pools).
What is your favourite on air moment thus far?
Those six hour Saturday arvos on 6PR in the eighties: eight race meetings, ten football matches. To get through that without a disaster (like missing a race) was like winning a Grand Final.
What is your most embarrassing on air moment?
Bob Maumill had a hand in most of them, although there was a more recent occasion involving Rex Hunt's surname.
If you could interview anyone (living or dead) who would it be?
An Aboriginal elder from the South West forest country, from before the Europeans arrived.
