What was your first job?

I was briefly employed as a clerk and decided very early that I had to start working towards something I would enjoy. Showbiz was the main focus and has thankfully remained so for 36 years.

What is your most embarrassing on air moment?

When I was at 3GL in my first radio job I had a huge hangover courtesy of Ernie and our good friend George Thoms. It was in the days of actually holding the records still above a spinning turntable and then letting them go - many intros were missed!

If you could interview anyone (living or dead) who would it be?

Sir Peter Ustinov. I interviewed him on a music station and the interview ran for two minutes. He was charming and I somehow feel he could be interesting for a bit longer that the format allowed.
