Andrew McLaren: Profile

Andrew McLaren

3AW Radio
August 3, 2011

Andrew was born in Melbourne and raised in the St.Kilda and Brighton area. 

He left school with no real idea of career so took he the parents suggestion and began a Teacher Training course and ended up teaching at Coburg Technical School, Northcote Technical and Daylesford High before doing the present and future students of Victoria a great favour by leaving the profession.

Andrew worked in retail for a couple of years [Fletcher Jones- Queen street]and dabbled in commercial photography.

At 28 and a half years of age he signed up for a radio-training course with Bob Taylor and got a start at 7HT Hobart and lurched through 3GL, 3AW, 3DB, 3MP, Magic693 and now, after many years back again at 3AW!

Along the way Andrew collected one wife and one daughter and far too many vinyl records. 

His hobbies are reading, movies and atrocious piano-playing.  Poker is also a dark obsession not discussed much in front of Joanne [afore-mentioned wife].
