Colin was introduced to turntables playing the 45’s of the day at family party’s in the mid 50’s. He remembers Eddie Fisher’s Cindy Oh Cindy as the first track he ever played.
His first job in radio was as a casual panel operator at a small country station. He also worked on commercial broadcasting stations both on air and behind the scenes as a voice talent.
In the early 80’s he produced a 60’s top 40 show on Community Radio in 2BCR 88.7 FM Bankstown and later 2GLF Liverpool in Sydney N S W Australia.
He moved to Bundaberg with his family in the 90’s and helped set up the town’s first Community Station Coral Coast 94.7 FM which opened in 2000. A couple of years later he worked on a second station 96.3 FM.
Colin, his wife Jan and the ”ZOO” moved to Tasmania where he was toretire but Colin’s interest in everything radio raised its head again.
He spent a short time presenting Christian pop music on the internet station ”The Journey” at lunchtime Central time in the US. Later he opened his own Internet radio, Goodtime Oldies playing exclusively 60’s classics complete with jingles of the time. Unfortunately he found as many hobby web casters do, the Government fees were beyond him and closed the station after 9 years.
During this time Colin found that producing programmes for other small broadcasters satisfying and has opened this website so the stations can obtain these for FREE.
