Colin has had an interest in radio since a child when he ''broadcast'' old 78's around the neighbourhood. He had his first taste of the industry as a panel operator. He also worked on commercial stations both on air and as a voice talent. In the early 80's he broadcasted a 60's top 40 show on community radio in Bankstown and later Liverpool.
After meeting his wife in the early 90's they moved to Queensland and helped set up a community station in Bundaberg. After 7 years there Jan and Colin decided to sell up and traveled 2,000 kilometers to settle in Tasmania. Their house is near the beach which they both enjoy with their Jack Russell terrier, two cats and a new kitten.
There they were going to enjoy retirement but Colin's interest in
everything radio raised its head again and he found Internet radio and started his own station, Goodtime Oldies playing Hit Parade classics from the 50's ,60's,70's & 80's complete with jingles of the time along with features from Mark Hanna and Kevin Larkin.
Colin spent a short period of time presenting Christian pop music on the internet station the Journey at lunchtime Central time in the US.
Always enjoying radio Colin now spends his retirement producing
programs for small broadcasters.
